Does anyone know what Witch Hazel is in Arabic???

I desperately need to get some but everyone just looks blank when I ask!!


I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure...

IN written form ( I Checked both ways )

الساحرات هازل


However, I don't think it's known by that name in N Africa, I think it may be known as Hamamelis persica or Just plain "Hamamelis" should suffice.

The Kaki leaves are used as astringent in Egypt I believe, if that is the intended purpose for the Witch Hazel..
