A popular commercial remedy and facial astringent used throughout the world, witchhazel was first harvested by Native peoples in the eastern United States.

The Potawatomi and Mahican tribes used witchhazel as a sedative and as an astringent, and valued its ability to stop bleeding. They also used witchhazel to soothe skin irritations, burns, and insect bites, and made a tea, often mixed with maple syrup, to treat sore throat.

Did you know that witchhazel is often used to treat sore muscles, sunburn, and skin rashes?
