Oats are a traditional food for those recovering from an illness. It supplies necessary fibre in the diet. Oats made into packs and pastes clear up many skin disorders, such as acne. Oatstraw is also used in treatments for stress and anxiety, as well as to nourish and restore nerves and reproductive organs in both men and women.
Add loose tea (1 to 2 teaspoons per cup, 250ml) to a teapot, or infuser basket. Pour very hot water (not boiling) over the tea and let it infuse for up to 3 to 5 minutes. Strain leaves from the teapot before pouring. Add honey or a slice of lemon to taste. Enjoy!
