Hi again Clare, I have just watched on youtube a very interesting informative film on Horsetail. It contains a high percentage of Silica which is great for skin, acne, wrinkles, used as a hair conditioner, aides bone density etc. Its also good for urinary and kidney conditions like gout etc. They suggest making a tea out of young horsetail plants. Might give it a go to get rid of a few wrinkles !!
On another site, a gardener used it as I suggested above, but also to prevent tomato blight and powdery mildew on courgettes etc. Boil plants for 20 mins and add a cup full to 2 gallons of water and spray your plants. its not all bad then !!
