Witch Hazel Organic Hydrosol

Hamamelis virginiana

Distilled from the leaves of the Hamamelis virginiana plant
Artisan Crafted in France 
Distillation date Spring of 2019
Shelf Life is about 1 year - 14 months
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!
