The illustration above is of the herb Witch Hazel. Native Americans used Witch Hazel in poultices for painful swellings and tumours. It is used as an ingredient in eye drops, aftershave lotions and cosmetic preparations, The distilled witch hazel widely sold is not as astringent as other preparations as it contains no tannins.
