Corn silk, the smooth, creamy-yellow strands inside the husks of corn (ideally harvested before pollination) is rich in nutrients and is a wonderfully soothing remedy for the urinary system. It is powerfully anti-inflammatory and soothes acute and chronic inflammatory conditions of the bladder and kidneys.

Another diuretic and urinary antiseptic, buchu is excellent for soothing urinary tract infections. It improves circulation to the urinary system and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It eases acute and chronic inflammation in the urinary system.

High in silica, selenium and zinc, horsetail is a potent ‘remineraliser’. It preserves the elasticity of connective tissues and supports the elimination of metabolic waste from the body, especially through urine. It gently tones the tissues of the urinary system, and can help with urinary incontinence and bedwetting in children. It is used to soothe inflammation in the bladder, urethra and prostate. As a diuretic (increases urine output and enhances elimination of waste products via the urine), horsetail can also support the body in preventing the formation and recurrence of kidney stones.
Echinacea is a well-researched immune-boosting and cleansing herb. It is recommended to help with overgrowth of unfriendly microorganisms — whether in the bladder in cystitis, or in the gut. It supports the action of the immune system and is helpful to treat any gynaecological infections, pelvic inflammatory diseases, urinary infections and post-partum infections.
