Witch hazel is an astringent produced from the leaves and bark of the
North American Witch-hazel shrub (Hamamelis virginiana), which grows
naturally from Nova Scotia west to Ontario, Canada, and south to Florida
and Texas in the United States. This plant extract was widely used for
medicinal purposes by American Indians and is a component of a variety
of commercial healthcare products.
