Ancient Infusions' Witch hazel is a plant with powerful medicinal properties that can be used in a variety of ways. There are many species of witch hazel, but Hamamelis virginiana — a type of shrub native to North America — is most commonly used in folk medicine in the US. The leaves and bark are made into teas and ointments.

Most often applied to the skin and scalp, witch hazel is widely known for its ability to ease inflammation and soothe sensitive skin. It can also be added to herbal teas and ingested orally in small amounts as a natural treatment for other conditions.

How to mix carrier oil with essential oils

Whenever possible, purchase organic, cold-pressed carrier oils from a manufacturer you trust. Although most carrier oils don’t cause an allergic reaction, you should always do a patch test prior to using.

To perform a patch test:

  1. Add a small amount of carrier oil to the inside of your wrist or just below your ear.
  2. Cover the oil with a bandage.
  3. Check back on the area after 24 hours.
  4. If irritation occurs, rinse thoroughly, and avoid future use.

If you’re allergic to tree nuts, you shouldn’t use oils derived from tree nuts. This includes sweet almond oil, argan oil, and apricot kernel oil.

When diluting essential oils with a carrier oil, it’s important to follow these dilution guidelines.

For adults:

  • 2.5 percent dilution: 15 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil
  • 3 percent dilution: 20 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil
  • 5 percent dilution: 30 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil
  • 10 percent dilution: 60 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil

For children:

  • .5 to 1 percent dilution: 3 to 6 drops essential oil per 6 teaspoons carrier oil

Always store carrier oils in a cool, dark place, preferably in the refrigerator. You should also keep them in a dark glass bottle.

Scott & Ancient Infusions is my happy place! Friends of mine recommended his Shea body butters and I went & ended up grabbing one infused with Frankincense (my favorite of all time) and Myrrth- its amazing.

Fantastic products and very knowledgeable sellers! The detox is a must try, it really impacted my overall health. And the pain cream and oil are great for stiffness and joint pain!

Besides the products being high quality, all natural, and healing, the owner, Scott, was so knowledgeable, and he has beautiful skin! He spent all the time we needed and answered all of our questions. He even threw in a few free samples!

I recently purchased the Healing touch cream for a sprained foot/ankle and I cant believe it's almost 100 percent better in just 4 days of using the cream!! I could barely walk a few days ago and today I'm back to walking normally!! definitely recommend all of these products!!

Angela Gardiner

I love their stuff here!! I have eczema on my cheeks/some redness from this and the product they recommended for me practically made it go away. I’ve only been using it for a week but you can see a clear change. They are so helpful and a great company. Highly recommend!
