8 Uses for Witch Hazel

Witch hazel is a fairly cheap product, but it’s not typically a product that gets a lot of repeated use. If you have some witch hazel lying around collecting dust, take a look at some ideas for using it up from Frugal Village:

  • Relieve Eye Puffiness: apply some witch hazel to a cotton ball or damp washcloth and use as a compress under eyes to reduce bagginess.
  • Deodorant: you can either just dab witch hazel under your arms with a cotton ball or try this recipe:

    Mix together –

    • 1/4 cup witch hazel
    • 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon vegetable glycerin
    • Drops of essential oil

    Spray mixture onto a cloth and wipe on.

  • Minor Cuts and Bruises: apply to skin to take advantage of its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
  • Cleaning: use it to clean chrome, glass, mirrors or jewelry. On a cotton ball, witch hazel also works to remove hair dye stains on skin.
