Artist's Description

Equisetum or Horsetails or mares tails as they are sometimes referred to, compete vigorously with the garden plantings along my driveway in Kanish bay on Quadra Island BC.
HORSETAILS are descendents of huge, tree-like plants that thrived 400 million years ago during the Paleozoic era, and have been used as a herbal remedy dating back to at least ancient Roman and Greek medicine. Equisetum was used traditionally to stop bleeding, heal ulcers and wounds, and treat tuberculosis and kidney problems. The name Equisetum is derived from the Latin roots equus, meaning “horse,” and seta, meaning “bristle.”

Today, horsetail continues to have medicinal value. The plant’s stems are rich in silica and silicic acids, which help mend broken bones and form collagen, an important protein found in connective tissue, skin, bone, cartilage, and ligaments. Therefore, horsetail is used as a supplement to treat and prevent osteoporosis.
