|Latin Name:||Avena sativa|
|Common Name:||Oat Tops|
As the name suggests, oat tops are the milky tops of the oat plant. Avena sativa has been consumed as a popular cereal grain for thousands of years and the young, milky oat tops are a favorite among herbalists for their calming and nutritive properties. Oat tops are commonly used in tincturing; however, they can be added to bath and body blends as well as infused in teas.
Avena sativa, or the common oat, is a popular cereal grain that has been eaten for at least 3,000 years. Although this is one of the main uses for this plant, various parts of the plant, such as the young seed and the oatstraw, are nutritive and have nervine qualities, and have long been a favorite among herbalists.
