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.
