Botanical Name: Avena sativa
Production: Oat is an edible grass that has been cultivated since prehistoric times for its edible, ripened seed (oat groat). Oat tops are obtained by drying and threshing the whole plant, including the dried oat tops.
Oat tops are best harvested when the seed is mature or "milky" during which the oat kernel releases a white, milky sap when squeezed. This stage occurs after the oat begins flowering and before the seed hardens to become what is then called an oat groat.
Qualities: Oatstraw contains protein (gluten) saponins, flavonoids, alkaloids, steroidal compounds, vitamins B1, B2, D, E, carotene, starch, fat, and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron, and trace elements like silicon and potassium. It is highly valued for its support of the nervous system and prescribed to restore balance and a sense of calm in depressed, exhausted, and anxious individuals, or those who are suffering from insomnia.
Common Use: These milky oats can be used fresh or dried to produce a nutritive tonic, to support sexual health and restore hormonal balance, as a beautiful addition to any tea blend, or as an infusion, tincture, or in a bath.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark location in a sealed container.

Consistently good quality oat tops
These oats have a lovely pale green colour and sweet scent. They seems the same in appearance and action as ‘milky oat tops’. I use them as a base of for nourishing / soothing herbal tea blends. I typically blend with nettle leaf, peppermint and rose petals.
First class oat tops! I grind them in the coffee grinder and put a big heaping spoonful of the gorgeous green powder in my coffee press and cover with boiling water. I Let the ground oat tops steep to a gorgeous green before straining into my favorite teacup. I love this tea and use it to nurture my nervous and endocrine systems. Oat top tea has literally become a very good green friend!
