Hazelnut is an amber-yellow coloured oil with a lovely taste, it is used a lot of the time as a substitute for Almond Oil which has a similar composition. The oil helps to maintain healthy circulation.
The tree is native to Northern Europe, where it grows wild but it is said to have originated from Greece. The female flowers bloom around the nut to protect them and 1 to 3 nuts can develop in autumn from a single female flower.
