There are so many uses for witch hazel. Witch hazel is a frugal, all-natural folk remedy that has been used for centuries. Witch hazel is an extract derived from the leaves and bark of Hamamelis virginiana, a flowering shrub found all across North America. For a few dollars, you can purchase a liquid form that is made from the bark and leaves of this useful plant. It has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It works as an astringent, but it has moisturizing properties, so it doesn’t dry your skin. I love it! If you aren’t sure what to use it for, here’s a handy reference guide for 30 frugal uses for witch hazel.
It is important to remember that the witch hazel you buy at the drug store contains isopropyl alcohol and should only be used externally. If you want to use with hazel internally, you must use a Witch Hazel Tincture or Witch Hazel Tea. You can look in local health food stores for witch hazel tincture and witch hazel tea.
