Powdered Horsetail Herb
Horsetail is an excellent herb for the feet, as its absorbency keeps you dry and it can help strengthen nails. This herb is rich in silica, crystals that can be seen (with a magnifying glass) in the rib of the leaf. Silica is one of the most powerful known re-mineralizing agents and absorbs moisture.
Horsetail (Equisetum arvense, bottlebrush, paddock pipes, shave grass) is a highly attractive, fascinating plant that grows extensively on moist waste ground. It is a perennial and native to Europe, but it is found in North America and Asia, too. Its upright, branched stems have black-toothed sheaths and whorls of spreading green branches. It gets its name because it looks like a green horse’s tail.
