Welcome to March! We hope that you have had a chance to enjoy “Wondrous Witch Hazel”. Aren’t the illustrations breathtaking? The font so whimsical? We look forward to exploring her with you this month. Witch Hazel has antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. She acts as an astringent, antioxidant, deodorant, hemostatic, styptic, and tonic, as well. Witch Hazel may be used internally or externally. As an astringent, she helps treat irritations and ailments of the skin, digestive, and reproductive systems. As an anitbacterial, she helps kill bacteria on the skin or in the mouth. Today, we will begin this month’s activities by making Witch Hazel Extract. Turn to page 26 to get started. The extract will need to steep for about 4 weeks. Remember to shake your extract every day. Have fun!
