Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is among the oldest of all plants¸ having dominated the plant world for 100 million years. In ancient times¸ it was a giant fernlike tree. The twenty species surviving today are miniature versions of their ancestors. Horsetail is known for its abrasive texture. In fact¸ Horsetail can be used to sand wood or scour and shine metal. This remarkable quality is due to its high silica content. Silica¸ a vital element of health¸ is found in all tissues and organs of the body¸ including the skin¸ hair¸ nails¸ teeth¸ bones¸ tendons¸ and ligaments. Horsetail yields a deep green color when used for dying fabric. The cut stems also make an interesting addition to herbal and flower arrangements.
