What is Witch Hazel?
Witch hazel has been a part of folk medicine for centuries. As a natural astringent, it’s best known for its healing properties and as a multipurpose remedy. Modern-day uses range from aiding skin care to treating insect bites. Its uses even stretch into cosmetic industries with products like toners and cleansers that contain small amounts of witch hazel. While this ingredient may sound intimidating, witch hazel is surprisingly easy to incorporate into your everyday routine, from battling breakouts to soothing swollen bug bites.
