Witch Hazel for Skin Care
I'm not sure how good witch hazel works on eczema, but it does seem to work really well on diaper rash! My little girl has a huge appetite, making it nearly impossible to keep a dry diaper on her. She's only 3 weeks old and has had her first diaper rash despite our best efforts. It was looking pretty bad, and then I sprayed on some witch hazel, patted her dry, and followed that up with using a hair dryer on a warm/cool setting to completely dry her after her diaper changes. I then applied diaper cream, either Butt Paste or my homemade cream of shea butter, coconut oil, & zinc (recipe is here). Within 24 hours she was almost as good as new!
