Natures Aid, Witch Hazel (Distilled) 150ml
Natures Aid Distilled Witch Hazel is a Skin Tonic and Cleansing Lotion.
The name Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) conjures up images of broomsticks and black hats, however, although the properties of this tree may seem magical the name actually comes from the process of dowsing to locate water or to witch a well. Witch Hazels branches were once the wood of choice for dowsing rods and ironically are now used to dry and cleanse the skin.
