In 1847 Henry Thayer M.D. opened a laboratory on Main Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts to produce his newly developed line of herbal extracts for sale to the medical profession. His natural elixirs have been a fixture in medicine cabinets for generations. Being one of the most versatile beauty products you can have in your bathroom, Witch Hazel has been used for centuries to naturally help acne, skin sores, redness and swelling, eczema, and cracked or blistered skin – just to name a few.
Try these at home remedies using Witch Hazel:
- Looking for a way to tighten your skin and slow signs of aging? You can make your own anti-aging serum by combining Thayer’s Witch Hazel with another skin-saving oil such as jojoba. This super skin-saving formula provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to preserve your skin’s elasticity, and provides support to endure everyday environmental stress on your skin. Do you sometimes get oil and product residue build up in your hair? Add several drops of Thayer’s Witch Hazel to your shampoo for a squeaky clean scalp cleansing solution.
- Cut yourself shaving? Put some Witch Hazel on a clean cotton ball and dab onto sore.
