Mountain Rose Herbs sells oatstraw and oat tops whole. Which one should be used for the herbal infusion
Ive been using oatstraw but I think I read somewhere that Susun prefers oat tops whole.

Personally, I use more tops than stems but mainly because I enjoy the full flavor of the oat more that way. I do believe there are more elements in the top than in the stem but I don't think it's a "make or break" situation.
That's the wonderful thing about plant magic - you self-test and see what works best for YOU. Its not a one size fits all kind of thing.

Stocki....I use oatstraw to calm, and soothe, help support during stressful times and for nutritional boost.
