Summarized Description: Cola de Caballo is one of our native traditionals, and although originating from the Andes of South America, it has, over the past century, been naturalized to many places around the world. (If you research this plant on the internet, please don't confuse it with the famous tourist spot of the same name in Nuevo Leon, Mexico!)
As while we're talking about potential confusion, note that this variety of horsetail that we sell should not be confused with E. giganteum -- a horsetail of the same genus possessing similar medicinal properties . . . This product can be used as tea using the instructions below, and it also lends itself to encapsulation by experienced end users.
