    I am assuming you mean in connection with quilting. When you find out, let everyone know because I have no idea.

    People use is for aches and pains. It also is the main ingredient in Tucks, which goes to show why it would work for aches and pains.

    Remember OJ's Beauty Lotion anyone? There use to be a bottle in every teen age girl's room. Pure witch hazel. Great for cleaning your face.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I have rheumatoid arthritis and my hands take a while to "warm up" in the morning. I tried some of the witch hazel this morning and was so happy to see that it definitely helped drop my pain level. I try to treat myself with natural remedies when I can and this is a new addition to my medicine cabinet.

    Thanks so much for posting and for the link!
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    I use it for cleaning and toning my face. I never thought to use it on my hands for my RA. I am having a lot of pain now in my hands and will give it a try. Thank you for the tip.

    I read this post the other day too. I went right out and bought some witch hazel, I have arthritis in my big toe joint! Well I must say…it take away some of the throbbing that I have. I now use it every night!
