  Witch Hazel Hydrosol
Hammemelis virginiana, conventionally farmed, USA.


Soothing and anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. A wonderful toner for teenage skin, as well as a free radical scavenger recommended for anti-aging skin treatments. One of my mentors uses Witch Hazel Hydrosol in all of her creams and lotions for mature skin. I've read that Witch Hazel and Rose Hydrosols, combined, is a delightful and easy to make skin toner.

Often recommended for use in a compress or sitz bath for varicose veins and hemorrhoids, we have found it useful for fungal infections in "delicate" places when no other remedy seems to help.

Suzanne Catty says Witch Hazel Hydrosol is the most antioxidant of the hydrosols and recommends it for psoriasis, eczema, cracked or blistered skin, for treating insect bites, and as the treatment of choice for varicose veins and hemorrhoids.

Please note: the distiller of this witch hazel hydrosol refuses to ship it without any preservative. Rather than have alcohol added to it, we've chosen food-grade benzoic acid as the gentlest preservative available. Otherwise we would have had to have either alcohol or parabens, and preferred to avoid both.

We also offer an Organic Witch Hazel Hydrosol.

Our hydrosols are packaged in blue cobalt bottles with atomizer tops for ease of use. Hydrosols are perishable: keep refrigerated. For more information on how they're made and their uses, click here.
