Alcohol-free Witch Hazel Skin Toner
Our Eco Friendly Chemical-free Unscented Witch Hazel Skin Toner is a gentle skin cleanser and all-around toner that's been in use for centuries, thanks to its legendary effectiveness in cooling and clarifying and balancing the skin. Witch hazel toner is also a natural remedy relief for ringworm, tinea versicolor, psoriasis, eczema, and insect bites. Pure witch hazel relieves itchiness almost immediately, and all without any chemicals or additives. Our witch hazel toner is unique in that it doesn't contain alcohol, only purified water, which could irritate or dry the skin. We have successfully used fresh raw lemon juice to treat tinea versicolor and psoriasis before showering, then applying witch hazel toner to the skin after toweling dry.
In Canada, smart hikers into the wilderness carry witch hazel with them as natural relief from bug bites; the relief action is almost instantaneous. Native and First Nations peoples have also used witch hazel for a variety of ailments and conditions. Witch hazel has been in use in the East too for the face and body for its moisturizing and hydrating qualities.
You can put our witch hazel toner in a spray bottle (or simply attach a spray head to the bottle) and spritz / mist your face and neck throughout the day to hydrate the skin.
As a daily skincare routine, apply witch hazel skin toner on clean moist skin, preferably after a gentle wash like our Organic Mungbean Powder Face & Body Wash. Or apply as a 100% natural remedy on affected areas for psoriasis, bugbite, eczema, ringworm, and skin rashes. For psoriasis and eczema, we recommend using witch hazel with our Mangosteen Medicinal Hemp Soap for a total solution to skin allergies and skin conditions. Make sure to let the skin dry after application to prevent constant moist condition on the skin under clothing.
Witch hazel is up there with aloe vera as all-in-one Mother's Nature remedies in a bottle / First Aid Kit. Purified water ensures the purity and correct strength to prevent skin irritation.
