Today, I thought I’d share a quick recap of this past month’s Oat Herb Study inside of my Herb Folk herb study program.
In this study, we learned about several different actions and uses of oat. We’ve also tried our hand at making, and hopefully using, several different oat preparations as well.
Get a quick peek of what we’ve covered in the Oat Herb Study below!
Inside the Herb Folk Oat Herb Study
Week 1 – Oat Grain: An Emollient
In week 1 of the Oat Herb Study, we looked at oat and its emollient properties. Oats can be used externally to soothe and soften the skin and to decrease irritation.
We made a batch of miracle cleansing grains to use as a gentle way to exfoliate the face on a weekly basis in order to reveal healthy, smooth skin.
Week 2 – Oatstraw: A Nutritive
In week 2 of the Oat Herb Study, we looked at oatstraw and its nutritive properties. Oatstraw is high in a variety of vitamins and minerals and is well-known for its ability to nourish the body.
We made an herbal compost tea to use on plants as a way to fertilize them naturally and add minerals back into the soils and the plants growing there.
Week 3 – Oat Seed: A Tonic
In week 3 of the Oat Herb Study, we looked at oats and its tonic properties. Because of the amount of nutrition found in oats, they are often used to strengthen and revitalize several systems and tissues within the body.
We made some delicious carrot cake oatmeal that can be eaten for breakfast (or any time of the day really). Not only is this recipe a great way to start your day, but it’s a great way to nourish your whole body too!
Week 4 – Milky Oats: An Aphrodisiac of Sorts
In week 4 of the Oat Herb Study, we looked at milky oats and its aphrodisiac properties. Oat works to strengthen and nourish the nervous, endocrine, and cardiovascular systems which often leads to better overall sexual health.
We made a delicious love potion that can be drunk on a daily basis to help rekindle the flame of passion when it dims!
