Organic Witch Hazel

Posted by Zongle Therapeutics on

Today, Witch Hazel is recognized as the nature’s best astringent. It is also referred to as hamamelis distillate (from its Latin name hamamelis virginiana), this plant-based substance has been used for centuries both therapeutically and in skincare and beauty products. Witch hazel is widely known for its ability to help ease inflammation and soothe sensitive skin.

The skin is our largest and most vulnerable organ of our body, it protects and shields the body from negative elements of the environment.  All of the “stress” that our bodies deal with every day, both internally and externally, show up on our skin. Thus taking good care of our skin could not be more underscored. Witch hazel offers benefits over other beauty products because it’s completely natural, free of environmental pollutants, irritating ingredients, fake fragrances and other contaminants.


Organic Witch Hazel astringent is extracted through distillation of the bark and leaves of the Hamamelis virginiana shrub, which is the scientific name of Witch Hazel.

The extract has medium viscosity and is clear and colorless like water. Unlike its commercial counterpart with strong smell, Organic Witch Hazel has a very subtle herbaceous scent, with a bit of woody edge.

How to Apply Witch Hazel?

The most popular way to use witch hazel extract is to dilute it with a carrier oil (like coconut or jojoba oil) and then apply it directly to the skin, either as a serum, lotion, toner or astringent.

Benefits of Witch Hazel

  1. Skin Toner and Acne Care
    Witch Hazel reduces the look of pores and helps regulate oil production caused by sweating that could lead to development of blackheads or whiteheads. Instead of popping a pimple and making the problem worse, put witch hazel directly on the skin wherever you notice a zit forming or where acne tends to break out. It’s even more effective when used in combination with tea tree oil or coconut oil.
  1. Helps Tighten Skin
    Keep your skin free from irritating chemical products that can alter oil production and increase dryness. Witch hazel can help maintain natural collagen and retain skin elasticity just as well as many commercial beauty products. You can easily blend witch hazel with vitamin E oil and other natural ingredients to create a night serum.
  1. For Healthy Scalp and Hair
    Use witch hazel on your hair to help reduce oil buildup — caused by natural sweating. Witch Hazel can help in maintaining hair health and shine.
  1. Help in Healing Minor Cuts
    Witch hazel is rich in tannins, a natural plant compound with powerful antioxidant properties that can help protect your skin against damage when applied topically


Final Thoughts

Today many traditional herbs are being reintroduced, studied extensively and experiencing a resurgence in popularity since many chemical treatments don’t always work or they have harsh side effects. Organic witch hazel is one such natural offering that has been used for centuries to boost skin health. 

For best results, purchase pure organic witch hazel, and always check that the ingredient label lists the correct species name — Hamamelis virginiana.
