About Witch Hazel:
It has a long history of use primarily to treat inflammations, bites, stings and skin sores and bruising. The extract acts as an astringent, firming and tightening tissue and helping reduce itching and irritation.
Chamomile has been used for generations and is one of the most widely used botanicals. Recognised for its antiseptic and healing qualities it is also carminative, emollient, and anti-inflammatory.
The oil contains 'azulene' which helps to reduce puffiness and lifts impurities.
Chamomile oil also has great wound healing properties and is extensively used to treat skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema, psoriasis, hypersensitive skin and allergic conditions. Other compounds found in camomile oil help to strengthen the skin and reduce redness.
With both moisturising benefits and mildly astringent cucumber extract is also very soothing, helps relieve puffiness and is naturally cooling. Cucumber will also gently exfoliate, tighten and help revitalise the skin.
Elder has been called "people's medicine chest" and the flowers were used in cosmetic preparations in ancient Egypt.
The herb is astringent and contains a substance called Eldrin which helps to soothe weak capillaries and is a natural anti-inflammatory agent.
