Hazelnut: one plant for a thousand uses

Hazelnut: one plant for a thousand uses

Nothing is thrown away from the kernel, it is a plant that can be very useful, from the trunk to the fruit.
The leaves are used in herbal medicine (as a natural anti-inflammatory) and infused in hot water for herbal teas. If, on the other hand, they are frozen, they can become an anti-dark circle pack.
The oil extracted from the fruit is the basis of many creams, because it is easily absorbed and has soothing properties. It has a purifying action, useful both as a cleanser and as a natural make-up remover.
Shells are a great fuel and can be used to protect the base of outdoor plants from frost. With the wood of the hazel a very fine embers are produced, used in the manufacture of drawing charcoal.
