Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is a plant occurring mainly in Europe, North America, but also in Scandinavia, Russia, Argentina, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries. If you are lucky enough to live in areas close to lakes, ponds, rivers, or seas, you have probably already encountered on your way to this very valuable plant.
Horsetail has a number of properties, both medical and magical. In folk medicine, horsetail herb has been used for hundreds of years against internal bleeding, in diseases of the urinary tract and as an internal and external agent against hair loss, and these properties are known to this day. Horsetail herb contains flavonoids, minerals, silicon compounds and silica. It helps with chronic lung diseases and airway inflammation, soothes nervous tension and strengthens the weak immune system. It helps in the creation of collagen, which improves the condition of our nails, hair and skin, and also prevents the appearance of gray hair. Has anti-inflammatory properties. It alleviates menstrual pain. Cures eye problems such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Improves memory retention. Controls excess sweat under the arms and can be used as a deodorant when mixed with vinegar.
When deciding on a long-lasting treatment of horsetail, we must remember that it flushes out vitamin B1 from the body, so it is important to take vitamin B1.
It is important to note that this plant also contains some levels of toxicity, especially if not harvested at the right time. The best time to harvest the Horsetail plant is in midsummer when it is very large and somewhat succulent. As an interesting historical fact I'll say that in older times it also served as a scouring rush and craftsmen used it as a fine sandpaper to polish metals and precious stones.
Magickally, horsetail is a plant of Saturn, the element of Earth and female element.
It has also many magickal uses: -Strengthen boundaries -Make commitments and vows companies -Protection against intruders in the home -Fertility -Snake charming -Bone healing -Anti-aging spells 🌿🌿🌿
