~dried and bundled~

Dried and bundled... my very own harvest of Horsetail, which i have growing in the fountain (here with other collected exotic seed-heads).


Horsetail - Equisetum is from the Latin equus , "horse", and seta , "bristle".


Horsetail is one of the greatest herbs for bone and connective tissue weaknesses.

It is very high in silica, which is converted into calcium by the liver.

This herb has great healing powers to all tissues of the body.

It is an extremely good herb for the urinary tract (kidneys and bladder).

Has some minor antiparasitic properties.

One of the greatest helps for increasing platelet production by the spleen.
