The therapeutic uses of witch hazel have been known by Native Americans for centuries. The leaves and bark of the North American flowery plant may be used to produce an astringent, which has been implemented by modern Americans for years, but it is now used for any number of minor medical problems.
Actually, witch hazel is currently a component of a variety of commercial healthcare products! Its uses include the soothing of eczema, swelling, psoriasis, sores, bruises and even ingrown toenails!
Summer is an especially good time to use witch hazel. We spend more time outside being accosted by mosquito's, fried by the sun and beset by rashes do to poison ivy and oak.
