Horsetail Products

Horsetail is a descendant of larger plants that grew 270 million years ago during the carboniferous period. It belongs to the Equisetaceae family and is a relative of the fern. It grows in moist, rich soils in all parts of the world except Australasia. The use of Horsetail as a herbal remedy dates back to Ancient Greek and Roman times where it was used to heal wounds, bones and as a natural diuretic. Horsetail is well known in herbalism as a source of silicon, especially in the assimilable form of silicic acid, which may explain its persistent traditional use for bone and connective tissue health.

Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.

This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy! For full instructions go to our How to make Herbal Tea Page.

Horsetail Tea can be made into a hot drink by decocting the Horsetail into boiling water. Use 2-3 teaspoons per cup of boiling water and steep for 5 -10 minutes depending on taste. Then strain and serve.

The plants that are used for Indigo Herbs Horsetail Tea come from plants that are grown specifically for the use as tea. The Horsetail plants first reach maturity before they can be cut and dried in semi shade. Only the best prime examples of the leaf are used in our tea. The plant matter is then slow dried out of direct sunlight and tested for pollutants before being made ready for shipping.

Not recommended for diabetics or pregnant or breastfeeding women. 

If you are taking any prescription medications, please consult your healthcare practitioner before taking Horsetail. 

Due to the effect that Horsetail has on certain vitamins and minerals in the body, long term use of Horsetail tea or tincture is not advisable. Taking a break after a week of daily ingestion is highly recommended.

The leaves and stems are a nicely proportioned size so it is easy to get a good amount of tea with one spoonful. Not bitty or dusty either! Very nice packaging too

Taking herbal remedies in a Tincture or Fluid extract preparation is simple and easy. The tincture can be measured out into the small ml measuring cup that comes with each bottle. (A medicine cup or spoon could also be used) and the tincture can be taken directly.

However some people do find the bitter tincture taste to be too strong, so it may be a good idea to dilute the drops in water or fruit juice. For children, the elderly, those with a sensitive constitution or those avoiding alcohol, the alcohol can be evaporated from the tincture. This can be done by putting the drops in boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes to evaporate. For full instructions go to our How to take Herbal Tincture page.

Horsetail Tincture can be added to water or fruit juice and taken when required.

Traditionally Taken: 2-3ml taken 2-3 times per day, or as directed by a Herbal Practitioner.

For Hair: Mix 3 to 4 drops of Horsetail Tincture with 2 tablespoons of Coconut Oil. Massage onto the scalp to promote blood circulation and strengthen hair follicles.

20 drops from the glass dropper equals approximately 1ml.

The plants used to make Indigo Herbs Horsetail Tincture undergo stringent checks to ensure they develop to their fullest potential, whilst adhering to exceptionally high quality standards. After careful selection and cleaning the plant matter undergoes a process of cold percolation in order to extract the active constituents into tincture form. The cold percolation method employs a gradient circulation of the solution which keeps the plant ingredients in perpetual contact with the ethanol. This technique is faster and more efficient than maceration and ensures there is less waste of precious plant materials. This premium quality product is manufactured to GMP standards and Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs. It is 100% pure botanical ingredients, completely free of synthetic ingredients with absolutely nothing added.

Not recommended for diabetics or pregnant or breastfeeding women. 

If you are taking any prescription medications, please consult your healthcare practitioner before taking Horsetail. 

Due to the effect that Horsetail has on certain vitamins and minerals in the body, long term use of Horsetail tea or tincture is not advisable. Taking a break after a week of daily ingestion is highly recommended.
