Oat Straw: a tea with calcium!
While we mostly consume oats as a cereal grain, some of you may be familiar with the nutritional benefits of dried oat straw tea!
Oat straw contains a high content of iron, manganese, zinc, chromium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, niacin and calcium. Dried oat straw can also be used in a bath to relieve inflammatory skin issues.
This week our farmer friends at Rain and Grain farm in Estacada are sharing with us their harvest of oat straw, we hope you enjoy this wonderful herb!
