Nourishing Herbal Infusions the Wise Woman Way
Oatstraw - Avena sativa
Oatstraw (Avena sativa) is the herb of longevity in the Auryuvedic system of
India. It restores nervous system integrity, emotional flexibility, and sexual flow.
Oats and oatstraw are exceptionally good at nourishing heart health and
moderating cholesterol. Oatstraw infusion (not tea, not tincture, not capsules)
provides lots of protein, all macro- and trace-mineral in high amounts, and very
high amounts of B vitamins - excepting vitamin B12.
A cup of oatstraw infusion contains more than 300 milligrams of calcium plus
generous amounts of many other minerals. Its steroidal saponins nourish the
pancreas and liver, improving digestion and stabilizing moods. Oatstraw is best
known however for its ability to enhance libido and mellow the mood. Do be careful
whom you share it with, or you may find yourself sowing some wild oats.
Oatstraw infusion is another favorite of
those who want to feel less anxious.
Preparation is the same as for nettle
infusion; remember to avoid tea bags and
capsules. The taste of oatstraw is softer
and more mellow; you will enjoy it warm
with a little honey. It is especially useful
for those whose anxiety is combined with
excessive nervous energy.
Nothing improves health faster and more firmly than regular use of
nourishing herbal infusions and medicinal vinegars. Learn more about these
