Rose Petal WitchHazel
Gather the rose petals, make sure they’re bug free and then stuff them into a jar. (Jar size will vary depending on how many petals you can gather.) You want to fill the jar rather full, but not packed too tightly. (If you don’t have fresh petals, you can use dried. You won’t get as stunning of a color, but it will still work!)
Pour the witch hazel extract over the petals until the jar is completely filled. Cap with a non-metallic cap and let sit in a cool, dark place for about a week. Strain and pour the resulting colored liquid into a glass jar for storage. It should stay fresh for several months, though the color will fade over time.
Rub on bruises several times a day to help speed up healing time.
Witch hazel is an astringent and antiseptic, so is helpful for spot controlling acne or used as an overall facial toner.
Put some in a small spray bottle and store in the fridge for cooling relief of sunburn.
Use for diaper rash. (Patch test on a small area first.)
Carefully dab under your eyes to help firm up the skin and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags. (Don’t let any get in your eyes!)
Witch hazel so can be used for treating varicose veins and hemorrhoids as well.
Apply to itchy skin and rashes caused by poison oak and poison ivy.
