Witch Hazel Water

A potent anti-oxidant and astringent useful for skin healing and treatment to help with problems from acne to sunburn. Essential natural first aid.

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.

Common Uses of Witch Hazel Water

Witch hazel is mainly used externally on sores, bruises and swelling. The distilled Witch Hazel water we sell has the tanning removed.
