Witch hazel, a medicinal shrub with many therapeutic applications, offers a natural remedy for hemorrhoids, oily skin, dandruff, and even for digestive and respiratory troubles.
Witch hazel is used in topical creams and lotions for improving facial glow and when added to one's diet it can ward off hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
Here are a few important uses of witch hazel:
