aka: Shavegrass

Properties and Uses:
Genito-urinary astringent, diuretic, lithotriptic, kidney and bladder tonic. Horsetail is good for kidney disorders. It is for enuresis and other irritable symptoms of the urinary system. Horsetail is an excellent source of naturally occurring silica. This helps the body absorb calcium and contributes to healthier hair and nails. It helps build or rebuild strong bones. It is also helpful for symptoms of arthritis.

NOTE: Horsetail can be irritating when used in large amounts for prolonged periods (daily for over a month). It works best in small, frequent doses (one to two capsules two or three times daily at mealtimes). People must drink plenty of water when using horsetail.

Herbie's Herbs' Tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
