Witch Hazel, also known as winterbloom, snapping hazel and spotted alder, is indigenous to the woodland areas of the Northeastern United States. The twigs and bark of the Witch Hazel Plant contain the therapeutic and aromatic constituents that, when distilled create the clear, fragrant, natural astringent American Distilling is famous for today. Native Americans recognized Witch Hazel’s value, and would apply it topically to treat minor wounds, abrasions and skin irritations.
Today, the applications of Witch Hazel go beyond facial care where a mild but effective astringent is desired; other applications include cleansers, body washes, hair care, eye gels and personal hygiene products. Consumers and medical professionals alike recognize Witch Hazel as a naturally soothing botanical extract.
