I buy witch hazel extract online. I like the extract more than witch hazel toners because those are distilled in alcohol. I don't want the alcohol because witch hazel is already an astringent. Alcohol just makes it more drying.
I mostly use the extract on my skin. I use a small amount on a cotton ball after cleansing my face. I also use it as a first-aid solution to clean up cuts and scrapes. It's excellent for insect bites and comes in handy during the summer. I think that witch hazel is one of the greatest things that nature offers.
I've been hearing good things about witch hazel leaf tea as well but I haven't tried it yet. Has anyone here had the tea?
