    Aloa and Witch Hazel?

    I was told that you could use aloa vera gel and witch hazel as a liniment, does this actually work? Thanks!

    Absorbine makes a spearmint liniment that contains witch hazel, so I'm sure that it would work just as well on it's own. Maybe dilute it some.

    Thanks! I was just needing a filler for a few days until mine came in, I think I will just wait until it comes it... I don't want to risk anything!

    You can add a little rubbing alcohol to water. The messaging/rubbing action is what helps the most.

    It certainly won't hurt. Aloe is soothing and great for the skin, and witch hazel helps reduce redness and inflammation. I make my own ointment out of aloe gel, witch hazel, and essential oils of lavender, peppermint, and tea tree. I've used it on myself and it works well though not as good as commercial liniments. I also use it on cuts and scrapes.
