Healing Herb: Horsetail

Healing Herb:  Horsetail

One of the healing herbs in Kevin's Care lotion is Horsetail Herb.  Kevin's Care lotion is effective for dry, stressed skin conditions like eczema.

Health Benefits:

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is the last remaining descendant of the giant ferns that covered the earth over 400 million years ago. A typical horsetail plant can contain up to 15 % vegetal silica. This bio-available silica, when applied topically, can greatly aid in the healing of wounds and burns, and has a softening and smoothing effect on the skin. Horsetail contains flavonoids and saponins which help rebuild and regenerate skin cells.

Natural Solutions from Native Roots:

Native Americans used a solution made by boiling horsetail stems to wash skin sores. They also treated poison ivy by washing the affected areas with a mixture of pounded horsetail and water.

Inspired by Herbal Wisdom:

Our products are inspired by our Native American heritage. Our ancestors freely shared their healing knowledge of plants for health & wellness.Honoring this wisdom, we add oils and herbs that were used for centuries as natural remedies. What was good back then still works today!
