1 tablespoon of grated horsetail (or a pinch of uncrashed) is poured into a container where 1 glass of water is added, the contents are boiled for 5 minutes and after a while the liquid is drained and drunk.
For gargling, prepare the above tea more concentrated in the dose of 50-60 gr. in a liter of water.
For a bath, soak 100 grams of herb in hot water for one hour and pour this water into the bath water.
Horsetail is one of the oldest plants on earth, having existed for 390 million years. Its botanical name equisetum comes from "equus" (horse) and "sacta" (hair), because its reeds are hard as horsehair. For this reason, and due to the high content of silicic acid, they were used to clean tin utensils.
On the other hand, its branches look like a horse's tail, hence the name hippuris. Silicic acid, however, gives the plant a valuable therapeutic effect, as it is important for the construction of bones, teeth, fingernails and toenails, as well as skin. Dioskouridis already finds: "... it excretes urine, its leaves stick to bleeding wounds ... the herb helps with coughs, orthopnea and internal ruptures".
Scientifically proven applications:
Committee E recommends the internal use of Horsetail in post-traumatic and static edemas, for the treatment of flushing in bacterial and inflammatory diseases of the occlusive urinary tract and in the kidneys, as well as the external use in wounds that close with difficulty.
The therapeutic effect in urinary tract inflammations and kidney stones is mainly due to the improved flushing without the elimination of sodium or potassium ions.
The increase in urinary excretion is caused, at least in part, by the flavonoids contained and the caffeic acid derivatives.
The use for wound healing could be attributed to the astringent action of silicic acid. In addition, Horsetail tightens connective tissue and stimulates skin metabolism.
Antispasmodic activity was also observed in animal experiments.
