A WORD ON BUYING WITCH HAZEL
There are a number of products containing witch hazel on the market, but for the purposes of this article, unless stated otherwise, we are referring to 100% pure and undiluted witch hazel.
It’s also important not to purchase witch hazel with added alcohol.
Our recommended bottle of witch hazel is this Dickinson’s Witch Hazel.
18 BRILLIANT USES FOR WITCH HAZEL
1. ODOR REMOVAL SPRAY
- 1 tbsp witch hazel
- 3 drops lavender essential oil (or other fragrant essential oil of your choice)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3 tbsp warm water
Mix in a glass spray bottle. Shake well to combine. Use this to absorb any unpleasant odors from carpet, upholstery, or simply as a fragrance boosting room spray.
2. FACIAL CLEANSING
Pour a little witch hazel onto a cotton facial pad (an eco-friendly and reusable one – like this) and use as a daily cleanser.
Because witch hazel cleanses your pores without drying them out, it can be an excellent solution for those with dry or combination skin.
If you have oily skin, use witch hazel throughout the day to keep your face clean and cut down on oil buildup without having to wash your face completely.
3. ACNE TREATMENT
Dealing with acne can be a frustrating and trying process and many products simply dry out your skin or even increase redness and inflammation.
Witch hazel has been shown to be effective as an anti-inflammatory agent and natural antibacterial that can help clear up acne. It can also help improve the appearance of acne scarring on the face and speed healing.
Try using a witch hazel toner in a spray bottle for acne in other areas as well such as the back or chest. Spray it on after the shower to allow it to soak into the skin.
4. SOOTHE DIAPER RASH
If your little one has an irritated bum, try following up their diaper change with a quick wipe of witch hazel diluted in water on a cotton pad. This can provide cooling relief, reduce inflammation and speed healing.
