Description

Witch hazel, also known as tobacco wood and winter bloom, is an evergreen shrub found throughout the woodlands of eastern America and Nova Scotia.

The leathery leaves of the plant contain numerous active compounds, including quercitin, kaempferol and gallic acid. Dried witch hazel leaf is used to produce infusions, tinctures and extracts for topical use.

 

Witch hazel has been used in the pharmaceutical industry in the US since the 19th century.
