846-Bulk Oatstraw, Green Tops, Organic, 1 lb.
- Oats straw is soothing to dry, flaky, damaged, and itchy skin. Use as an ingredient in skin creams and lotions, baby products, and bath products. Other benefits include its use as a relaxing tea and nerve tonic. For those who feel over-worked, over-stressed, depleted and burned-out, oat straw is the tea of choice. For tea: pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1-2 teaspoons of herb. Cover and steep for 5-10 minutes, strain and serve immediately. For a bath, place two cups of oats straw in a muslin cloth and add to the bath water, swishing it around. (Or make a strong oats straw tea and add the tea water to the bath.) To enhance your oats straw bath experience, tie 1/2 cup of oatmeal in a soft cloth and use it to cleanse the skin after a nice soak in the bath. Our flowering green oatstraw includes both the immature grain, and stalk portion of the plant.
