Horsetail: The Anti-Aging Super Reed

Last week I made a batch of horsetail hydrosol in my still so this week I'm starting with all the amazing skin & hair benefits packed inside this super reed.

What makes horsetail shine in the natural cosmetic industry is that it contains more silica and silica acids than any other herb, in a form that's easily absorbed by the body both topically and internally.

Inside the human body, silica is important for the strength of the blood vessels, organs, skin, hair and bones, adding to the form, resilience and flexibility of all connective tissues and fascia.

Here's a brief look at some of the many benefits of horsetail:

  • Promotes tighter and firmer skin

  • Cleansing properties help minimize the appearance of large pores

  • Improves and tones skin texture while moisturizing

  • Suitable for those with sensitive skin

  • Natural source of nutrients like calcium, magnesium, zinc, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and vitamin C

  • Antioxidant activity protects from free radicals

  • Contains a variety of bioflavonoids
