Horsetail, not to be confused with cat-tail, is possibly the most abundant source of silica in the plant kingdom, so much in fact that the herb can be used for polishing metal.

It got the name “scouring rush” from this very application. It has had other uses during the ages including being used for kidney and bladder ailments, and as an ingredient in shampoos, skincare products, and in dietary supplements. It has been used as an American folk remedy for gout and gonorrhea, and in traditional Chinese medicine for dysentery with blood, sore throat, and malaria.

Modern herbalists usually use it for kidney stones, urinary tract infections, inflamed prostates, and anemia. The German E commission describes its use for urinary tract problems and as a diuretic.
