A natural First Aid, Witch Hazel is ideal for use as a skin healing agent to treat problems such as acne, bruises and sunburn.

Witch hazel is mainly used externally on sores, bruises and swelling. This Witch Hazel is distilled, hence the tanning has been removed. It is a strong antioxidant, can soothe irritation and has an astringent nature.

Witch hazel is a good anti-inflammatory and antispetic agent which makes it very useful in fighting acne. It has been recommended for psoriasis, eczema, aftershave applications, cracked or blistered skin, for treating insect bites, poison ivy and as the treatment of choice for varicose veins and hemorrhoids.

You can also use it as a refreshing room spray in an enclosed environment to dispel stale air.

Witch hazel is also known to help with speeding the healing of cold sores with several daily applications.

Witch hazel is also traditionally known as a good first reaction against shaving cuts and abrasions for men and is also recommended by the Doctors Book of Home Remedies as effective for sunburns.

Some people have found it to be an effective cure for athlete's foot.
