The Therapeutic Properties of Hazelwood
The beaked hazel (Corylus cornuta), often called ”hazelwood” is a species of shrub indigenous to Quebec. It will grow to be three meters at most, with oval shaped or narrow and oval leaves (7 to 10 cm long), and is widely spread throughout Canada, especially in the Eastern regions. For centuries, hazelwood twigs have been used by Native American tribes in different ways to heal the body.
HAZELWOOD THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS
Based on research from literature, First Nations peoples made external use of the plant by placing a necklace made of twigs around a baby’s neck to calm teething pain. Today, thanks to scientific research and development, we can better understand the properties of hazelwood from its high content in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecules.
A NATURAL SOLUTION TO INFLAMMATION
The same way First Nations peoples used small hazelwood twigs for their health benefits, thousands of people still use hazelwood today as an easy and natural way to soothe various ailments caused by inflammation such as heartburn, joint pain, skin problems, mouth sores, teething pain and more. Today, there are necklaces and bracelets for the whole family available on the market in several styles!
