I love witch hazel. I carry a bottle with me in the summer. I put it on a terry facecloth with a bit of water to wash with when I don't have access to a sink. The smell and feeling refreshes me when I am too hot. I use the rose scented Thayers as a toner.
I hope it never goes off the market. It is such an old fashioned product.
Thanks for telling about using it as a deodorant, I will try it.
