Horsetail is rich in silica and widely known as an excellent herb for brittle hair and nails. It has been used as a hair rinse to help improve the strength and quality of hair, and applied to the scalp to promote hair growth. Its ability to stimulate collagen makes it useful for skin health. It has anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties, which have been known to benefit the bladder and kidneys, and infections such as cystitis. It has been traditionally used as a bladder tonic, which strengthens the bladder muscles to aid with urinary incontinence in children and adults. Its astringent quality makes if useful to minimize bleeding (internal and external). It also has been shown to increase calcium absorption and traditionally used to help treat osteoporosis and other bone conditions.

This is a beautiful tea and tastes freshly dried, not as if it has been sitting around for a long time losing flavour. Lovely!

This is a must have for beauty and health.  I mix it with nettle and rinse my hair and face with it.  I also mix them both with raspberry and drink daily.  It’s really good!

Just wanted to add I steep for a min of 15 minutes for max benefits.  It doesn’t get bitter or anything.  Still tastes great.

I love this tea!  I’ve been suffering from incontinence for 3 years since the birth of my child and after one month of taking this tea everyday I could feel it was making a difference.  Now it’s been over three months of taking daily and I must say my muscles are stronger and no longer suffer, I am estatic. My nails have grown so fast without any maintenance. Does everything it says it does and more, I just can’t say enough good things about this tea!
