Uses for Witch HazelFrom henrie 9 years ago
- Witch Hazel shopping list
How to make it
- Witch Hazel has been around for as long as anyone around can
- remember. It is inexpensive and there are so many uses for it
- from head to toe. Here are a few...
- Blemishes.....Mix witch hazel and a few drops of Tea Tree
- oil and wipe over the face twice a day to control oil, and
- Mix witch Hazel in a spray bottle with 5 drops of peppermint
- oil to use as a bug repellent when outdoors. Spray on. Witch
- Hazel can be applied to bug bites to take the itch away also...
- Witch Hazel can cool tired feet and when mixed with peppermint
- or Eucalyptus oil, can soothe tired muscles...
- Use Witch hazel straight as an astringent to keep pores clean
- and to shrink them...
- There are also Witch Hazel shampoos that are
- sold in health food stores. You can also take 1 ounce of Witch
- Hazel and addit to an 8-10 ounce bottle of shampoo. (Great
- for the scalp).
- "Witch Hazel is also good for small sores, scrapes and bruises.
- It inhibits (stops) the bleeding. If you put it on a small
- sore or scrape, it will burn a little. But, for all 3, they
- heal faster. I had heard this with bruises and didn't really
- believe it. I tried it on a big bruise I had one time, put the
- Witch Hazel on 1/2 of it and let the other 1/2 heal on its own.
- The 1/2 with the Witch Hazel healed in about 3-4 days. The other
- 1/2 took almost 3 weeks. Also, the fresher the bruise, scrape
- or sore, the faster it works."
- Witch Hazel also works wonderfully for tired eyes -
- put on cotton pads and place on eyes for 15 min.& tired red eyes
- disappear and your sparkle is back...
- Salons do scalp treatments for clients but if you can't
- afford one, try this mini one. Thoroughly brush the hair
- and scalp, take a pick and gently "comb" the scalp from
- front to back. This loosens the dry skin that accumulates
- on the scalp. Apply Witch Hazel all over the scalp and
- massage it in for a few minutes. Leave on 5 minutes and
- shampoo and condition using cooler water than you usually
- Witch Hazel applied to burns or sunburn will soothe and
- heal the skin quickly.
- Witch Hazel applied on a cold sore when you feel it coming
- on will prevent it from becoming a blister. If you already
- have one, use it right away and often and the blister will
- heal quicker.
