untamed fact #17 (horsetail)

Horsetail has survived since the age of dinosaurs and is considered by many to be a living fossil.

An incredibly potent source of silica, horsetail has been used for scouring and scrubbing since ancient times.

A strong support for filtering toxins and a powerful tonic for the kidneys, it is best wild-crafted in the spring and dried or tinctured for later use.

Folklore suggests horsetail’s ability to successfully span time makes it a great support for the turning of the seasons, particularly at the shift from warm summer to moist autumn.
