Hello. There are over 20 species of Horsetail. They are mostly of European origin. Horsetail has a creeping rhizome and spreads easily. There are some areas in Australia that Horsetail can not be grown. Check the laws for your area.
Horsetail has the ability to take up nutrients and minerals from the soil. Because of horsetail's rich mineral content, it has been found to be an effective fungicide when used as a spray in the garden. The spray is used mainly in summer as a preventive measure against mildew, rusts and wilt. Horsetail spray can be used to strenghten plants and to prevent dieases such as fungus.
Horsetail is used for health issues including bladder and kidney disorders, bleeding and hemorrhaging, gout, rheumatism and other joint inflammation, boils and abscesses.
Horsetail has a rich content of silica. Silica helps promote the formation of healthy red blood cells, helps purify the blood and stimulates blood circulation. Silica is essential to well being.
Horsetail helps to remove excess fluid from the body and increase the flow of urine. Horsetail tea helps with weightloss and diabetes.
A neurologist recommended Horsetail tea for poor memory, memory lapses, lose of concentration, stress, delusions, depression and phobias.
Have a nice night. Love, Peace and Healing to you all. Lesley
