Herbal Uses of Milky Oats
We are excited to share a series of monographs on the HWB blog. Each monograph is one double-sided page that can be saved or printed. They were designed to be a quick reference, so not every action, dosing strategy, etc. could be covered. The back-side of each monograph lists references that were used and includes sources from respected herbal texts and websites, as well as peer-reviewed journal articles. These references would be an excellent starting point if you’d like to dig deeper. Now, on to the monograph!
Herbal Uses of Milky Oats
As you will see from the monograph below, oat (Avena sativa) is a gentle, nourishing herb that helps support the nervous system. It has a mineral-rich nutrition profile, and is much loved by herbalists as a nervine tonic. In addition to milky oats, oat straw is also used in herbalism.
Learn more about the herbal uses of milky oats by downloading the printable monograph below.

Hi, all! Starting with the fun stuff in introductions is, well, more fun! You'll find me outdoors whenever possible - biking, hiking, camping, music festivals…the list goes on. I also enjoy yoga, cooking, cuddling my cats, and learning. Managing the number of herbal courses and webinars I take at one time is an exercise in discipline! My road to herbs started, as it does for many people, during a time of personal struggle. I tried to address it at a physical level through yoga, which led me to acupuncture, and then herbs. Somewhere along the way I found the courage to face the fact that the root cause was emotional; though yoga/acupuncture/herbs could help, I would have to do the work to move forward. I came away from the experience stronger, happier, and with a deep appreciation for plants. The rest is history, as the saying goes, and I'm currently preparing to launch my herbal practice.
