Herbal Actions: Nervine tonic, antidepressant, nutritive, demulcent, and vulnerary.
Traditional Uses: Oats is an incredible remedy for feeding the nervous system. Especially in cases of nervous exhaustion. I spent about 3 years drinking a tea that was a mixture of oat straw, skullcap, and valerian root. I included the oat straw because it literally nourishes and feeds the nervous system. To me, this means that utilizing oat straw tea allowed me to give my nervous system what it needed to repair itself from all damage.
Drinking oat straw with skullcap is a great combination. Oat straw feeds the nervous system. While skullcap tones the nervous system. This is kind of like drinking creatine and protein powder with your workouts at the gym. You are giving your body the nutrients it needs to heal and grow.My Trusted Sources
