History of national witch hazel day has influenced national witch hazel day

In 2021, Dickinson Brands established National Witch Hazel Day to celebrate the past and amazing benefits of Witch Hazel.

100% natural Distilled Witch Hazel has been the key ingredient in all Dickinson Brands products for more than 150 years, delivering more effective, all-natural skin care and skincare products. Dickinson Brands Inc. owns three brands of Witch Hazel: Humphreys Witch Hazel in Premium Natural Skincare sets, T.N. Dickinson's Witch Hazel in First Aid, and Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel in Skincare.

Rev. Thomas Newton Dickinson, a clergyman, saw a way to bring Witch Hazel's benefits to the masses in 1866. Dickinson, born and raised in New England, understood the native plant's healing abilities, which were used by Native Americans as early as the 17th century. He opened his first distillery plant in central Connecticut, close to an abundance of the finest grade Witch Hazel shrubs to produce and bottle his namesake brand Dickinson's Witch Hazel.

Rev. Dickinson established the new, all-natural method for Witch Hazel production, a time-honored craft ever since. Every winter, Dickinson Brands begins to hand-harvest organic-certified New England Witch Hazel at its peak bloom. They have perfected the distillation process in accordance with USP (pharmaceutical) guidelines, bringing you a clinical-grade natural active with a signature botanical scent and a variety of skin-loving formulas. Dickinson's takes pride in the purity of its distilled Witch Hazel and in delivering you highly effective Witch Hazel products.
