Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Botanical Name: Equisetum arvense
Origin: Bulgaria / Croatia / China
Production: Horsetail is a flowerless, vascular plant that reproduces through spores rather than seeds. It is considered to be a living fossil and has changed very little, other than in size, in millions of years. Its roots dig as deep as 150 feet and they dissolve minerals and absorb them into the plant's cells.
Qualities: Horsetail is one of the most abundant natural sources of silica in the plant kingdom, as well as containing calcium and potassium. Silica strengthens connective tissue including bones, cartilage, skin, hair, and nails. Tea made from horsetail has been used to soothe asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory issues, as it is said to strengthen lung tissue and prevent inflammation.
Common Use: Horsetail is commonly used in teas, tinctures, or encapsulated. It also has many cosmetic uses.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Super fresh. Very fragrant. I added to my metabolism boosting smoothie, it gives me sustained energy and helps regulate my blood sugar throughout the day. I trust essentials organics. I order so many incredible products from them. This is just another one to add to my regular lineup. Another stunning example of perfection.
Very good. I use this herb to make a tea to bathe in. I use about 6 heaping tablespoons of herb to a pot of 10-12 cups of water, boil it for ten minutes, then strain it into the bath water.I like the quality of the herb and knowing where it originated. It was cut slightly longer than what I am used to. Bathing in this way is a treatment for a rare skin disorder called lichen-amyloidosis. The horsetail or equisetum tea helps to open the skin and exfoliate.
