Horsetail Herb, like its name, is a very unique and special.
This powerful plant has been used for centuries all over Europe in food and medicine as an extraordinary antioxidant helping mend broken bones, cartilages and repair skin and nails. This is because Horsetail is rich in a variety of nutrients such as flavonoids (some 15 different types), bitter principle, silica, calcium, manganese, magnesium, sulphur, potassium, phytosterols and tannin. Of all known herbs Horsetail contains the highest amount of silica, which is an important nutrient for healthy skin, hair and nails and connective tissues throughout the body.


Horsetail is also known to be an antioxidant and improves circulation, which is useful in rejuvenating the foundation of your skin and regeneration of its cells. It has softening and smoothening effect on your skin and is used as an overall skin conditioning agent. This makes Horsetail a wonder herb as it not only has the properties to repair your skin, it can protect and nurture it as well.



Horsetail is especially very rich in silicic acid and silicates, which provide approximately two-to-three percent elemental silicon.  Silicone helps to bind minerals needed for strong nails, hair and bones. It is also essential to the production of the skin’s connective tissues – collagen and elastin. As collagen is an important protein found in connective tissue, skin, bone, and ligaments, it helps firming your skin and protecting it from wrinkles and sagging.

So, if Horsetail can help protect, nurture and repair you skin it is easy to see why at Miss Donna Herbs we love it so much. We have found that due to its qualities, it is extremely beneficial for acne prone skin and it can also help stop wrinkles and skin sagging.

This wonder herb has a brilliant ability support you fight against acne and wrinkles, by ingeniously boosting your natural silicon, and inspiring your natural beauty.
