Hazel has been used in traditional medicine for draining and restoring the elasticity of lungs. The nuts are a good source of magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, fatty acids and protein. Hazelnuts can be powdered and added to mead or honeyed water to help with a cough.


Hazel, associated with wisdom and divination, has been used by Druids for centuries due to its mystical properties.

In magical practices, hazel wands are highly prized for their ability to enhance intuition and channel energy, making them ideal tools for spellwork and rituals.

Hazel wood is known for its healing properties, with its leaves and bark used to treat various ailments, including headaches and skin conditions.

The wood of the hazel tree is also highly durable and flexible, making it a popular choice for crafting wands, dowsing rods, and other magical tools.

A couple of twigs bound with gold or red thread to form a solar cross is carried for protection and good luck.

The mistletoe that grows on Hazel protects you from being bewitched. Sleep under a hazel tree and you will have vivid dreams.

Hazel is sacred to the Fey. A wand made of the wood can be used to call the Fey. Hazel can be used as dowsing rods to find ley lines. Forked branches can be used to find water or buried treasure.

Twigs, nuts and branches should be gathered after sunset on Samhain for that is when the magic(k)al power of the tree is at its peak.

However, it would be best if you didn’t cut Hazel with a knife, but a flint.
