Horsetail is an ancient plant that has been utilized for millennia for its nourishing properties. Also known as bottle brush, shavegrass, and scouring rush, horsetail is often incorporated into shampoo and skin care products. Our horsetail powder is ground from organic Equisetum arvense and can be tinctured, encapsulated, and infused into herbal body care recipes.
Horsetail has a recorded history going back to the Devonian period. The plant at that time was as tall as a modern palm tree. Horsetail, not to be confused with cat-tail, is possibly the most abundant source of silica in the plant kingdom, so much in fact that the herb can be used for polishing metal. It got the name "scouring rush" from this very application. It has had other uses during the ages including as an ingredient in shampoos, skincare products, and in dietary supplements. Horsetail belongs to the Equisetaceae plant family.
