HORSETAIL is an effective diuretic and blood cleanser. It is a good general herb for high Pitta conditions and has a strong stone-removing action for kidney, bladder and gall-stones. Yet it is somewhat of an irritant and an abrasive in its action and should not be taken for long
periods of time without proper supervision. Horsetail promotes the healing of broken bones and supplies nutrients to the bone tissue. It helps clear and brighten the eyes and removes toxicity from the blood. It is also good for infectious fevers and flus.

Horsetail has similar properties to burdock seeds and can be used externally as a paste or wash for inflamed surfaces. It clears Pitta and fiery emotion from the nerves and mind.
