Witch Hazel Organic Hydrosol - France

Hamamelis virginiana

Distilled from the leaves of the Hamamelis virginiana plant
Artisan Crafted in France 
Distillation date  November 2021
Shelf Life is moderatley stable
Aroma is very delicate herbaceous scent, with a slight woody edge. Smells plant-like without being overly green
Taste
 is rather dry and nondescript, except undiluted, but it is not recommended for use in this manner. It has a powerful astringent effect in the mouth and is slightly bitter.
 
Smells nothing like commercially available witch hazel. This is  real witch hazel hydrosol, not the “witch hazel ” sold in pharmacies and health-food stores because they contain between 1 and 30 percent alcohol by volume. The alcohol is an effective stabilizer and preservative and may have benefits in witch hazel’s use as a sports rub, but it makes it inappropriate for the uses described below and precludes all internal applications.
 
  • Possibly the strongest antioxidant hydrosol
  • Topically it reduces redness, rashes, itching, swelling and saling of the skin
  • Heals cracked or blistered skin
  • Good for eczema and psoriasis
  • Powerful anti inflammatory and cicatriscant
  • Effective wound wash and antiseptic
  • Great for varicose veins and hemorrhoids
  • Reduced edema and rheumatic pain
  • Good gargle for sore throat
  • Astringent enough for teenage skin, it is eminently suitable for mature or damaged skin
Storage:
When not in use, store in a cool dark place.  A refrigerator is great!
