Witch hazel is easy to recognize in autumn woods, as it remains covered with threadlike golden yellow flowers.  When applied directly to skin, witch hazel can help to to soothe sensitive skin and treat inflammatory issues such as  eczema, and psoriasis.  The bark can help to suppress erythema, or reddening of the skin caused by irritation.  As an astringent, witch hazel helps  to contract and shrink the pores, potentially preventing acne causing bacteria from entering.  Topically applied as a poultice, it may also help to treat swelling and inflammation caused by hemorrhoids. 

Scalp sensitivity and dandruff can be alleviated when applied to scalp.  The tannins found in witch hazel act as a barrier for the skin and can help to protect against skin damage.  It is used as a remedy to relieve the symptoms of cold sores,  as well as irritation from bug bites.  Witch hazel can help to cleanse wounds and heal burns, and dabbed onto the skin below the eyes can reduce dark circles. 


The magical uses of witch hazel include cooling passions, revealing truths, and repelling negative energy.  The smoke from a fire made with witch hazel bark cleanses and purifies property and belongings, in a manner similar to white sage.
