What Horsetail herb Is:

Is that green scouring pad on your kitchen sink worn-out? It'so, go out and pick some horsetail. This plant, a flowerless leftover from prehistoric times, is rich in silica, a natural abrasive. Smart campers across North America still pick wild horsetail to scour dirty pots and pans after they've cooked dinner over the fire. (No wonder It's also called scouring rush.) Once the maturing plant forms and releases cases of reproductive spores, it grows bushy stems that resemble a horse's tail.

Horsetail is a rush-like plant with hollow jointed stems. It is rich in silica and other minerals and has diuretic and healing properties. It also stops bleeding and tones the bladder. Horsetail may also promote the healing of broken bones and connective tissue.
