It helps to moisturize the skin, gets rid of fine lines, wrinkles, and dead cells on the surface of the skin, and rejuvenates the skin, keeping it supple and glowing. Aloe Vera is very effective in treating and preventing skin disorders, due to its ability to seep through the multiple layers of the skin. Therefore, it is beneficial for many skin disorders. It is a known vulnerary, (meaning it helps heal wounds) and is great for applying topically to burns, abrasions, and even to bug bites.

Witch Hazel also called Winterbloom and Hamamelis Virginiana, is a skin soother. It was widely used by American Indians as a medicinal plant. The bark was used to treat ulcers of the skin, sores, sore muscles, cuts, bruises, and insect bites. Witch hazel is considered to be a potent astringent due to the high level of tannins in the leaves. The astringent properties of Witch Hazel's tannins cause proteins in the skin to tighten. This produces a protective layer that supports resistance to inflammation and promotes healing. Witch Hazel has been shown to have antioxidant properties, and there are components that make it a potent anti-inflammatory. Witch Hazel helps to soothe tender skin and prevent pain and infection. It is of benefit in healing and soothing mosquito bites, stings, sunburn, poison ivy,hemorrhoids and diaper rash. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
