Witch Hazel

When we saw this little tree in the garden centre we thought it was a bit different - Witch Hazel (Hamamelis).

We thought this strange little tree was a beautiful addition to the Olive Training's garden as we would be able to show learners this fantastic healing plant.

Witch hazel is widely used in facial training as the water is used as an astringent to tighten the skin and close the pores. When applied directly to the skin it helps reduce swelling, will help fight bacteria and start the healing process.
