Witch Hazel may just be the most popular home remedy in America, and there is good reason: It works!  This native shrub is an old and reliable astringent that has been used for external and internal bleeding, cleaning and soothing bruises, curbing diarrhea, relieving the pain of hemorrhoids and stitches after surgery, as well as a variety of aches and complaints. Witch Hazel Herbal Supplement should always be in your cabinet.

Country of Origin: United States

Beneficial Uses:
Witch Hazel is a wonderful astringent, and that quality is applied both externally and internally.  It is used as a reliable and effective means to stanch bleeding with a unique kind of astringency whose main focus of action is on the venous system, acting to restore tone, health and vigor throughout the system.

Witch Hazel acts as an herbal painkiller and antiseptic that will help to destroy bacteria and is used as an effective gargle for sore throats and to keep wounds clean and combat infection.

Witch Hazel is an anti-inflammatory and anesthetic that is included in several over-the-counter preparations (Preparation H and Tucks) that reduce swelling and soothe the discomforts resulting from rectal and vaginal surgery and stitches

Contraindications:
Currently, there appear to be no warnings or contraindications with the use of Witch Hazel.  However, because of its high tannin and volatile oil content (saffrole), this herb should not be used over long periods of time; in rare cases the bark may cause liver damage if too much is absorbed. (The leaf is a fine source of Witch Hazel Botanical Extract.)  Use of Witch Hazel may cause stomach upset, constipation or nausea.
