The buds of this shrub present throughout much of Europe, Asia Minor and the Caucasus are used to prepare Hazel Gemmotherapy Extract. Hazel, up to 18 to 20 feet (6 to 7 meters) tall, grows spontaneously in the undergrowth of deciduous and needle forests, forest edges and clearings. It enjoys close proximity to ash tree and hornbeam. Rapidly growing, it hardly lives more than 100 years but can become very invasive. It likes silica-rich, dry, filtering soils. With the help of the bacterial flora of the soil, it alkalinizes the humus. Its leaves, rich in organic matter, improve the soil over the years. It is one of the first trees to fill itself with flowers, even before starting to leaf again, because the flowers appear as early as the previous year and last throughout the winter, opening before leafing. Because of its early flowering, it is an important melliferous plant. Its fruits, the hazelnuts, by their richness in lipids (61%), proteins (15%), vitamins (provitamin A, B1, B2) and minerals (K, P, S, Ca, Mg and to a lesser extent Fe, Mn, Zn and Cu), are able to meet the needs of human nutrition and were already used by the Neolithic peoples.
In the tradition, it is the tree of the beginning. Hermes, messenger of the Gods, used the Hazel branch to teach love, balance and harmony. Among the Celts, it is one of the 7 chief trees of the druids and represents knowledge. For centuries, and still today, hazelnut branches have been used to make divining rods to search for underground water. The Hazel tree is indeed very sensitive to water and humidity.
