Women! Are you stressed out and overworked? Do you feel like you have one nerve left and that person next to you standing on it? Do you feel on edge, exhausted and stretched beyond your limits?
I have good news for you. There are many natural herbs that nourish your body. One is oatstraw, a soothing and calming herb that nourishes those frayed nerves. What is oatstraw? This herb is the same plant that produces your breakfast oats. It is full of magnesium and calcium, perfect for calming those nerves.
It has gentle but yet powerful properties for healing the nerve cells and restoring the nervous system. When you feel frazzled and out of sorts, drink oatstraw infusion throughout the day. It will nourish and tone those nerves. You can also end the day with an oatstraw bath, soaking in all that calming oat goodness.
Do you toss and turn at night from nervous exhaustion? Drink a cup of infusion before you go to sleep and then again before breakfast. After about 2 weeks you should notice you are sleeping better. It even eliminates leg cramps!
You can make an infusion by pouring boiling water over 1 oz. Oatstraw herb in a quart canning jar. Let it set overnight or for about 8-10 hours. Mix with raw honey and ice for a refreshing drink. You can also mix it with your other favorite herbal teas.
Oh, and for that bath? Take a quart of infusion and mix it with your bathwater. Soak for at least 20 minutes. It will nourish and rejuvenate those nerves.
