Have you heard of Oatstraw?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I love love love making my own herbal teas. I am an herb junkie. While I was living in the United States I purchased most of my herbs from Moutain Rose Herbs. They are almost all organic, fresh and carefully sourced. I am still searching out vendors here in Portugal but for now I buy from Chas Do Mundo.⠀In Portugal you call oatstraw palha de aveia. I like to use loose leaf herbs but if you do not have that avaialble you can buy Oatstraw in capsule form as well. This is one of my favorite brands. ⠀⠀

Oatstraw is one of my favorites. Oatstraw has been around for over 3,000 years. It is a nervine. Basically, this means it is calming and who doesn’t love that right? It has a slightly earthy taste to it. Here is my favorite afternoon tea blend to make using oatstraw.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I love herbs and plan to share all of my favorites with you. I recyle all my glass jars and fill them up with loose leaf herbs. I believe there is power in these beautiful leaves if used regularly.
