Most Witch Hazel products on the market contain about 14% alcohol to both extend the product and preserve it. The alcohol, however, can be very drying to the skin. In lieu of alcohol, our Witch Hazel Hydrosol contains .15% benzoic acid to help extend its shelf life. Benzoic Acid is a primary component of Benzoin Resin (Styrax benzoin).

If you have used a commercial Witch Hazel product, than you are familiar with its soothing, distinctive aroma. It possesses a subtle but unique, fresh, herbaceous aroma.

Witch Hazel Hydrosol is primarily used in skin and oral care. It is astringent and can be used daily as a toner. It cleans the skin and leaves a light film of oil to help soothe dry skin. Suzanne Catty mentions that Witch Hazel Hydrosol is antiseptic and possesses strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and she states that it can be useful in healing varicose veins, hemorrhoids, cracked or blistered skin and to sooth eczema and psoriasis. It is effective in soothing sunburn, stings and bug bites. Its anti-inflammatory action makes it especially helpful in easing the pain of rheumatism and arthritis.

Witch Hazel has a long history of use in oral health care. Include it in mouth sprays, rinses and washes to ease sore throat pain.
