Avena sativa is one of my favorite herbs for just about anybody. Anyone who is stressed, overworked, or anxious, should include oats as part of a daily health regimen. It is a safe tonic herb for the nervous system. Avena is exceptionally rich in silica, calcium, and chromium and are one of the highest sources of magnesium.
I highly recommend oat straw tea during pregnancy for calming nervous tension and stress. It is also safe for yeast infections that occur during pregnancy and it is great for varicose veins as the infusion is useful in strengthening the capillaries. If your looking for a great pregnancy tea try Nutritional Herbal Pregnancy Tea.
For children, oat straw is a perfect choice for nighttime unwinding, as well as high in calcium to support growth spurts. Use for children who are nervous, hyperactive, or stressed. Our valuable blend, Teddy Bear Tea is all natural, healthy, and yummy. This tea will become your favorite nighttime ritual.
Take advantage of this simple herb and you'll see how gentle and effective it is. Combine with lemon balm and passionflower for a good nervine, and with valerian as a sleep aid, or with digestive bitters for any liver or digestive upset.
