Witch Hazel Bark Ingredients
“Witch” in witch hazel does not literally mean a witch who does magic spells, but it’s fun to think of the tree stirring its leaves to make a concoction. The word witch actually comes from the old English word “wice” which means bendable. The stems from the tree were used as “divining rods” to look for underground water. It was believed that the branch would bend towards the ground when water was present. Native American used witch hazel bark to reduce swelling and inflammation and to treat skin injuries, burns, varicose veins, and hemorrhoids. It reduces irritation on the tissue surface through numbing the area. Surface inflammation is reduced and it creates a barrier against infection.
