Product Overview

Witch Hazel – Natural Topical Remedy for Nearly Everything

Why Witch Hazel?

Hamamelis virginiana, mostly known as American witch-hazel, common witch-hazel, or simply just witch-hazel, is a flowering shrub indigenous to the eastern region of North America. It is a tiny tree or shrub that loses its leaves in the fall and may reach a height of up to 6 meters (rarely up to 10 meters). The blooms are radially symmetrical and feature unusual petals that are long, slender, and crumpled. As the flowers develop, their color changes to a rich yellow, forming hairy buds.

There are many environments where witch hazel may grow, including woods, hills, rocky terrains, riverbanks, and ravines; however, it grows best in rich, fertile soil that is kept consistently wet.

Native Americans boiled the witch-hazel's stems to make a decoction, which was then used to cure swellings, inflammations, and tumors, later adopted by early puritan settlers in New England.

Due to its astringent and antibacterial characteristics, witch-hazel is used to treat various skin disorders. It may be purchased for topical application as a semisolid ointment cream, gel, or salve.

    It’s very important that you order early from these folks. They are extremely busy.

    So happy to see the potential for this lovely shrub to become a colorful part of our landscape. Honestly, the plant that arrived did not look as good as another that is not performing as well. This 1 is a winner for Central PA. ;)
