Horsetail – Originally from the Northern Hemisphere, Horsetail is a plant belonging to the Equisetaceae family. That plant is rich in digestive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, toning, healing and diuretic properties. It is considered an excellent ally in regulating the menstrual cycle, even in the treatment of urinary infections and gonorrhoea. Enriched with vitamin C and potassium, horsetail can help fight anaemia, arthritis, fluid retention and gastric ulcer. In addition, it can contribute to the swelling of the eyes and the reinforcement of the defences.
The scientific name “Equisetum” derives from the junction of the Latin words “equi” (horse) and “setum” (tail). In the 18th century, the use of horsetail was recommended for the treatment of kidney stones. As a rule, horsetail stalks are used for tea consumption. Due to its aesthetic characteristics, horsetail was very often used for ornamental purposes in gardens. This herbaceous plant with a slightly bitter aroma appeared about 600 to 250 million years ago. However, only 20 species of horsetail are still active today.
This medicinal plant is adept in humid environments and is applied near places with water. If you intend to grow it, it is recommended that you monitor its development so that it does not take the form of a weed. With a high quantity of mineral salts, horsetail is a plant that can be used in infusion as a fungus repellent in gardens.
