Witch Hazel: Benefits, Side Effects, Dosage, and Interactions By Cathy Wong

Witch hazel plantWestend61/Getty Images

Witch hazel is a natural remedy made from the bark and leaves of a plant called Hamamelis virginiana. Long used in traditional medicine, witch hazel is usually applied topically in order to treat certain skin conditions.1

Witch hazel contains tannins, a type of natural compound with astringent effects. By acting as an astringent, witch hazel helps to constrict skin tissue.

Proponents claim that witch hazel can heal a wide range of skin troubles, such as acne, bruises, burns, hemorrhoids, inflammation, insect bites, itching, pain, and varicose veins.1

In addition, some people use witch hazel as a toner (a type of skin-care product said to cleanse the skin and tighten pores).1

While some proponents recommend internal use of witch hazel for some conditions (such as diarrhea, colds, and even cancer), there is no evidence that consuming witch hazel can enhance your health. Furthermore, oral intake of witch hazel may trigger a number of adverse effects.1

s

by Kris Gunnars, BSc

Turmeric is the spice that gives curry its yellow color.

It has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb.

Recently, science has started to back up what Indians have known for a long time — it really does contain compounds with medicinal properties (1Trusted Source).

These compounds are called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin.

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant.

However, the curcumin

nefaeria: Wortcunning: Common Tansy (Tanacetum vulgare) By Laurel

Tansy is one of my favourite herbs, and was facsinated by it since I was a young girl. I think that was largely due to the fact that I associated it with Faeries after seeing the Tansy Fairy (pictured above) by Cicely Mary Barker.

This is a first of what I hope to be many posts profiling various herbs, focusing on lore, magical and medicinal properties, as well as other practical information.

Please keep in mind that this is for information only, and if you do decide to ingest any herbs for medical reasons, I highly suggest that you gather as much information as possible, and do so under the guidance of a qualified healer.

I have decided to lay this out in a way that it is hopefully easy to read. If there are any herbs that you would like me to profile in particular, please leave suggestions in the comments section, or email me.

Sláinte!

Laurel

Other Names: Bitter Buttons, FaeryButtons, Buttons.

Description: Tansy is a very attractive perennial with groupings of small yellow button-like flowers and feathery leaves, and it grows to about 2 to 3 feet tall. It is native to Europe, but has become naturalized very successfully to North America.

A bad witch’s blog: Craft: Witchcraft, Wands and Wild Roses by Badwitch

Craft: Witchcraft, Wands and Wild Roses

I love wild roses. One seeded naturally in my back garden and grew along the fence between it and that of the house next door. It was a dog rose, the most abundant wild rose that grows in England.

It has simple, pale pink blooms with five petal as well as sharp thorns along the stems. Although all roses symbolise love, for me the dog rose also symbolises the wildness of nature, which can be both beautiful and cruel. I was pleased that a wild rose was thriving in my garden, I happily let it climb along the fence and I delighted in its brief flowering every summer.

But early this spring my neighbour cut it down. We had had an argument about the fence, which had been damaged in a storm, about who should fix it. After the argument my neighbour spent the day taking down the remaining panels and posts of the fence – and took a machete to my rose that was clinging to it. I didn’t say anything further to the
