Witch hazel is a plant that has strong healing properties and can be used in many different ways. There are many types of witch hazel, but in the US, people mostly use Hamamelis virginiana, which is a shrub that grows in North America. Teas and creams are made from the leaves and bark.
Witch hazel is well known for its ability to ease inflammation and calm sensitive skin. It is most often used on the skin and scalp. It can also be added to herbal teas or taken by mouth in small amounts to treat other health problems in a natural way.
Tannins are chemicals that are found in witch hazel. When put on the skin directly, witch hazel might help reduce swelling, heal cuts, and fight bacteria.
When it comes to products you put on your skin, you should always treat the outside of your body the same way you treat the inside: try to avoid as many chemicals and toxins as you can. Witch hazel is better than other beauty products because it is all natural and doesn't contain any chemicals, irritants, fake fragrances, or other harmful substances.
◉ Cleanses Hair and Protect the Scalp - Applying witch hazel to your hair can help stop oil from building up. This makes your hair more healthy, shiny, and full. It's also great for getting rid of smelly hair, soothing an itchy scalp, and helping bites or acne at the base of the neck heal faster if you sweat a lot.
One study done by the Center for Dermatology and Disease in Zurich, Switzerland, found that shampoo with witch hazel extract helped calm patients' irritated scalps, redness, itching, and inflammation. After testing witch hazel on 1,373 patients, some of them said their symptoms got better and they could handle other hair products better.
◉ Stops Ear Infections from Developing - Since witch hazel is an effective antibacterial and "swimmer's ear" and other ear infections are usually caused by bacterial infections, it is a natural way to treat irritations in the ear canal. Witch hazel can get rid of an overgrowth of bacteria and infections in the ear. It can also dry up oil, pus, and extra sweat, break up wax, and even get rid of smells. Put a few drops on a cotton swab and rub the inside of the ears to clean the outside of the ears.
◉ Helps Treat Hemorrhoids - Hemorrhoids happen when the veins in your rectum and anus swell up and become inflamed. This can cause symptoms like itching and bleeding.
Witch hazel is often used as a natural treatment for hemorrhoids to help ease the pain and discomfort they cause. Most of the time, it is added to a cloth or cotton ball and then put on the skin directly to calm it down.
Witch hazel is thought to help treat the itching, redness, pain, and swelling that come with hemorrhoids because it has anti-inflammatory properties. It may also stop bleeding from hemorrhoids because it can stop the blood from clotting. But more research with people is needed to find out if witch hazel helps with hemorrhoids.
◉ Protects Your Mouth, Lips and Gums - If you have blisters on your lips, inner cheeks, or gums, you can use witch hazel to speed up the healing process and get rid of pain and swelling. It is safe to put the extract on the inside of your mouth to stop bleeding, blisters, sores, bad breath smells, and gum infections, especially when mixed with other healing oils like coconut oil or peppermint oil.
Witch hazel can also ease the pain of toothaches or teething in babies, stop infections after oral surgery, and stop mouth sores from bleeding and swelling.
