Hazelnut Oil is an excellent plant oil for seasoning food, to which it gives its characteristic aroma. Hazelnut is a very nutritious food, rich in fatty acids (in particular oleic acid, a precursor of omega 9), vitamins and mineral salts, including calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It also contains a fair amount of fibre which facilitates intestinal absorption and counteracts constipation.

The hazelnut tree and its fruit, the hazelnut, are very ancient; it is thought that they had already appeared in prehistoric times. Over the centuries it has been attributed numerous magical and therapeutic properties. In Ancient Rome they were considered auspicious, and given to the bride and groom to wish them happiness and prosperity. In the Celtic tradition they were a symbol of wisdom. Popular medicine also attributes healing properties to all parts of the plant. The leaves were used to make infusions to wash wounds or against bags and dark circles under the eyes. The bark (of the young branches) was boiled in water to create a concoction to reduce fever. It was also used for the presumed to tone circulation in the veins. Finally, pollen encourages sweating and purification. It is no coincidence that the branch of the hazel with two snakes wrapped around it is the symbol of medicine. It was also used in cosmetics: an ancient peasant beauty recipe is for compresses with hazelnut oil to rejuvenate the skin. Today it is known this treatment works because Hazelnut Oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins (in particular A and E), with a strong purifying, healing, toning and antioxidant action.
