descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Sold by weight. Horsetail (Equisetum arvense)is the last remaining descendant of the giant ferns that covered the earth over 400 million years ago. The plant has an unusual root, shoot and stem system that enables it to absorb and store silicon and other minerals. A typical Horsetail plant can contain up to 15 percent vegetal silica. This bio-available silica, when applied topically, can greatly aid in the healing of wounds and burns and has a softening and smoothing effect on the skin.
Mineral-rich Horsetail contains the building blocks needed for collagen and elastin synthesis and the silicon present will link any collagen produced, thus greatly enhancing the rebuilding of connective tissues in the epidermis. Horsetail also contains flavonoids and saponins which help rebuild and regenerate skin cells.
Horsetail butter was developed for cosmetic use. It is actually an extract of Equisetum arvense using a proprietary butter base which produces a smooth, velvety butter at room temperature. Horsetail Butter may be used for cutaneous dryness to assist in moisturization after exposure to sun and other harsh elements. It is completely oil miscible and contains no preservatives or coloring agents. Completely natural! Suggested uses: Creams, lotions, body and lip balms, bar soaps. Use from 3% to 100%.
Appearance: Soft, semi-solid fat. Its color could range from ivory to light green to a slightly darker green. Odor: Herbal, grass like. As with all natural products, there cannot be any consistency regarding odor, consistency and color. SAP value: 175-200. Shelf life: 1 yr. when tightly sealed and kept in a cool place away from direct light and heat. INCI = Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Equisetum arvense extract (and) hydrogenated non-gmo soybean oil.

Really smooth, absorbs well
I wasn't sure about this one, so I ordered a sample first--it worked well all by itself as a healing lip balm and it seemed to have very nice properties to use in a face cream so I ordered a pound of it and got started. I've made a luxurious face cream with this butter in place of shea. It's just lovely. I use this butter by itself as an eyelid moisturizer at night. It's not too heavy (although probably is for daytime use and definitely would make your makeup run if you had it on under/before mascara). It's a rich, soothing, healing butter. This one is a keeper.

I LOVE this butter!
This was my first time ever ordering horsetail butter, and I'm hooked. It's smooth, creamy, and feels moisturizing! I've used it in hair moisturizer, body butter, and plan to use it in a new lip balm recipe. I only bought 4 oz to try but now I wish had bought more.

This butter goes a long way & glides onto the skin. I purchased it as it is supposed to help with edema. Not only did it help with this, it helped my parents neuropathy pain when they put it on their feet before bed time. Amazing stuff!
Reviewer: keesha tynes (Chesapeake, VA) 5.23.2015
This butter is so soft and has a very distinct smell. It mixes very nice with coconut oil and was very moisturizing for my hair!
Reviewer: Khaled Mowallad (Jeddah, Jeddah) 12.25.2014
This butter is very nice
I loved it. The texture is amazing! The smell is also good. I use it for my hair.
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.

EO's in 5 and 10 lbs. - heavy duty plastic container w/pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the container at least 2 months. EO's in sizes of 25+ lbs. - industry-standard metal or plastic can with a pouring spout, the oil may remain inside the metal can indefinitely and up to 2 months in the plastic pail.
