Horsetail at Golden Garden’s State Park in Seattle

Horsetail (Equisetum spp.) at Golden Gardens State Park in Seattle.  The entire plant can be used in early spring as a remedy for urinary tract infections, where it acts as a urine acidifier.  It can also be helpful in reducing internal bleeding.  Do not use horsetail long term. For tea, use fresh: 1 teaspoon to a cup of water.  Drink 1-3 times per day for a maximum of 14 days.  Do not make tinctures with horsetail.
