Witch hazel, also called American witch hazel, is a woody shrub native to the eastern U.S. that flowers just as most other plants are dropping their leaves.

The bark and leaves of the plant were widely used by Native Americans and early American settlers. Powdered witch hazel leaf is used to make infusions, salves and ointments to sooth minor skin irritations.

American witch hazel, also known as tobacco wood and winterbloom, is an understory species of small tree native to the woodlands of eastern North America. The plant is also grown as a garden plant for its interesting flowers, which come into bloom in late fall just as most plants start dying back to the ground.

Another advantage to having witch hazel around in that in the event you should need to find a new source of well water, its wood is the preferred material to use as divining rods.

The bark and leaf of witch hazel have a long history of use topical use that continues today. While the bark is valued for its astringent qualities, witch hazel leaf contains several antioxidant compounds such as quercetin.
