Witch Hazel for Sunburn?

I always thought aloe vera was the only way to go for sunburn, but apparently pure Witch Hazel (no alcohol - check the label) is just as effective.

Keep Witch Hazel in the frig and soak a wash cloth to apply as a cold compress.

Finish by applying aloe to lock in the moisture.

You should be able to find Witch Hazel at any local Health Food Store.  I gravitate towards the Thayers brand.

Witch Hazel also works well as a Toner, Acne relief, on Bug Bites, for Minor Cuts, on Poison Ivy/Oak and to speed up the healing of Bruises.

Get a little Witchy!
