The hazelnut branches are used to make dowsing rods, which are used by countless dowsers. The wood has special conductivity for energies and power currents.

In the Middle Ages, hazel fell into disrepute as a witch tree and became a synonym for infidelity and lust.

The male, green-yellow inflorescences are catkins about 10 cm long. The female flowers are hidden in the buds. The male kittens can be collected in early spring and mixed into flu tea.

🛑 More and more people are suffering from allergic reactions to hazelnuts. Bee pollen and nuts carry allergenic potential, which can be particularly difficult for those allergic to birch pollen.

The fruits are among the healthiest nuts ever. By chewing the small seeds well, the brain and nerves are stimulated and the substances they contain are then absorbed even better.

Hildegard von Bingen: Take hazel catkins and a third part of stonecrop and as much as the fourth part is stonecrop morning glory and some mountain savory. Cook this with the liver of a young, sexually mature buck, after adding some fatty pork. Then he shall remove those herbs and eat the meat and he will lose his barrenness.
