● Horsetail grass,
, is a herbal remedy whose use as a medicine dates back to ancient Roman and Greek civilizations. The medical treatments are for kidney stones/kidney problems, ulcers and wounds, and osteoporosis.
Growing horsetail is easy, as is producing the medically beneficial tea. Horsetail is considered to be a diuretic and studies have proven that it has antioxidant properties, and that it inhibits cancer growth. A herbal tea is made of fresh or dried horsetail shoots, while a rag soaked in the tea can be used as a dressing to help heal external ailments. Harvesting the shoots should be done in midsummer and the shoots can be used fresh or dried for later use. Horsetail grass is a great choice for a Prepper because the plant grows extremely quickly, multiplies, and has both short-term and long-term medical benefits.

● Being extremely cold hardy down to USDA zones 3 through 10 makes the horsetail an appealing plant for Prepper gardens all over the United States. The plant usually grows three to four feet tall and loves to be planted near a water source, such as creeks and rivers, and prefers to be planted in partial shade. Horsetail is considered to be a fast-growing plant and will spread in size, providing an abundance of material from which to make medicine. Soil type is not really a concern, as long as the site location is close enough to a water source. In addition to being a medicinal plant for Preppers, horsetail grass is abrasive and can be used as a natural scrub/brush, making this a highly adaptable, highly useful plant for consideration in your Prepper garden.
