Characteristics of Witch Hazel Water
Witch Hazels are deciduous shrubs or small trees growing 3 - 8 meters in height. The leaves are oval and alternately arranged. The tree blooms from September to November and produces a fruit that holds the seed. The capsule that holds the seed explodes with enough force to send the seeds up to 9 meters away. This gives the witch hazel its alternative name, Snapping Hazel.
