      Hi Friends, I found some blooming Witch Hazel yesterday where I work (so I know it’s not been sprayed with anything nasty.) Two questions:

      1. One had chartreuse-yellow flowers and one had reddish ones. Which hazel do you want to use? Maybe it doesn’t matter.
      2. What have you done with it?

      I wasn’t sure how to use it, so have some stems in a jar of water. They smell spectacular.

      Joy! (And thank you!) Sita, Camano Island, WA

      Hello Sita!

      Do you, by chance, have the botanical names of these 2 species of witch hazel?

      My favorite website to look up plant constituents is Dr. Duke’s Phytochemical and Ethnobotanical Databases.


      You can look up each species and see which witch you find more beneficial to your needs.

      Thank you, Suzanne! I don’t know the botanical names. Thank you for the reply and suggestions.

      I’m having so much fun with everyone at CMHS – learning and playing – what a wonderful group of souls you’ve magnetized! Thank you, dear one!

      Sending oodles of love to you in Sand Pointe 🙂
