Our Witch Hazel carrier oil is a oil with powerful medicinal properties that can be used in a variety of ways. There are many species of witch hazel, but Hamamlis Virginiana– a type of shrub native to North America– is most commonly used in folk medicine in the US. Most often applied to the skin and scalp, Witch Hazel is widely known for its ability to ease inflammation and soothe sensitive skin.
Carrier oils and essential oils are made from plants. Carrier Oils are used to dilute essential oils and “Carry” them to your skin. That’s because our therapeutic essential oils are potent and can cause irritation when applied directly to your skin. Most carrier oils are unscented or lightly scented and they do not interfere with an essential oil’s therapeutic properties. Carrier oils may be used alone or with other oils to nourish your skin.
