Horsetail is also known as scouring rush, shavegrass, bottlebrush or pewter wort.

It has had other uses during the ages including as an ingredient in shampoos, skincare products, and in dietary supplements.
We recommend a decoction (rather than infusion) for internal use; boil tsp per cup in a covered vessel for 15-20 minutes.
