Witch Hazel: Traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory and astringent. It nurtures the skin with its anti-itching, softening, and emollient properties. It is also accredited as an antioxidant. It supports the regeneration of new skin. The restorative properties of Witch Hazel will benefit damaged skin caused by the inflammatory condition. Witch Hazel also disperses fluid, inflammation, which causes swelling in the skin. It is beneficial for varicose veins because the stagnant fluid is what causes the veins to float to the surface. By dispersing the inflammation the matrix system will flow evenly, and the veins recede.
