The witch hazel tree got its name from the Indian tribes because of its healing qualities and the fact that it looks a lot like a hazelnut tree. It is astringent, and it has protective qualities, so people thought it was magical. We’re not offering witch hazel oil, because the tree doesn’t produce enough of it to make mass production possible. No, what you can buy here is hazel water, a witch hazel distillate that contains all of its positive properties. You can use it against acne, eczema, and psoriasis, and you can apply it to cuts and abrasions because it has styptic qualities. People use it for varicose veins, insect bites, sprains, sun burns and much more.
