Overview

Witch Hazel extract is a wonderful ingredient for use in your cosmetic and medicinal preparations. It is gentle enough to be used alone, or it may be combined with other ingredients or herbs. Commercial Witch Hazel extracts usually contain more alcohol than actual witch hazel, and have only been distilled once. However, the line of organic Witch Hazel extract offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is superior in both quality and potency. Our true witch hazel extract has been double distilled, and contains 86% witch hazel extract and only 14% alcohol. This makes it more soothing than the version found in your local store, and lacks the alcohol sting and scent. Witch Hazel extract is distilled from the twigs and bark of the Witch Hazel tree (Hamamelis virginiana).
