Skin Irritation, Hemorrhoids

Possessing many of the same qualities of its leaves, Witch Hazel bark is equally praised for its curative properties, and tinctures made from it are frequently found in many drug stores and pharmacies. It was first introduced to the world as settlers in North America were shown how to use it in poultices by Native Americans, and it was used in this way until the 19th century, at which point it became most commonly distilled into an alcohol-based tincture.

Sometimes also used to make a medicinal tea, Witch Hazel bark is perhaps most commonly used topically in the treatment of most varieties of minor skin issues. It is well known for treating everything from scrapes, scratches and bruises to sunburn, poison ivy, and eczema. It is also occasionally used as a gargle or in easing stomach complaints.
