Horsetail is an herb we quite often see growing in damp areas of woodland. It’s very distinctive as it looks like both its common names; ‘horsetail’ and ‘bottle brush’, and it’s very brittle when you pick it. Horsetail is very useful to Herbalists as it contains almost 70% silica, which gives the body flexibility and strength at the same time. It helps the body to absorb and use calcium effectively in strengthening bones, teeth, hair, and nails.
Rosehips are still used to make ‘gripe water’ for babies, and are naturally rich in vitamin C and bioflavonoids. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant which has a multitude of benefits for keeping the whole body healthy, and in order to make best use of vitamin C, it helps to have some bioflavonoids alongside it. Luckily in most cases the two naturally occur in the same fruits, but rosehips are particularly rich in bioflavonoids.
