I want to start off saying that I love everything else I've gotten from Bramble Berry except for this. When I purchased this I was expecting some kind of alcohol smell, however I was not expecting it to be so pungent that it overpowers any fragrance I use. I've been making bath bombs and I've tried three different batches. The first following a recipe to the gram, the second I cut the witch hazel in half and added more fragrance, the thentire third I put onlu a couple of spritz. All three of them came out smelling foul. I follow the same exact recipe minus the witch hazel and it smells great. Is it supposed to be that strong? I wish it could be returned.
Kelsey from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Amanda! I'm sorry you were disappointed in this product. We love the Witch Hazel, though it can definitely be a strong scent if you've never smelled it before. Much of the scent should fade away in a few days or so as it evaporates out. Many people do exactly as you mentioned and use either a little oil or fragrance as their wetting agent instead. You can also use a little Cyclomethicone as your wetting agent. Customer service has contacted you directly to resolve this issue :-)
I use this in my Natural Bug Repellent and Lavender Spray! Love it! It's on of those Must Have items!
Bath bombs are sort of my signature product and every time I make them I use witch hazel. By putting it in a spray bottle I can add it a little at a time without causing the fizzing reaction. I also use this witch hazel mixed with a few other things to make a toner type of product that works great for my skin. Witch hazel is pretty versatile and this is a great product.
What is the percentage of alcohol in this item? Do you offer an alcohol-free witch haze. I bought this thinking it was alcohol free, not reading the ingredients carefully enough. Thank you.
Reply from Bramble Berry Hi Laura! Our Witch Hazel is 14-15% alcohol. We do not offer an alcohol-free Witch Hazel. Thanks for your suggestion though! We will definitely keep that in mind. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
is the witch hazel already in a spray bottle?

Hi Jeewon! No, this product is not packaged in a spray bottle. The bottle has a twist cap so that you can pour it into whatever container you would like :)
