About the Celtic Hazel Tree: The hazel tree was very important to the Celts. In Irish mythology, the Aes Sidhe (Fairy) spirit lived in the hazel tree. They even named one of their gods after the hazel – Mac Coll or “son of the Hazel” – and he became one of the three earliest rulers of Ireland. The hazel tree was so important that anyone who cut it down could be sentenced to death.
The Celts believed you could gain great wisdom and knowledge of the arts and sciences by eating hazelnuts. The tree's powers of wisdom were so great that Druids carried hazel wands when they had to settle arguments and administer law.
Hazel leaves have been used to help varicose veins and improve circulation. Ground hazelnuts mixed with water and honey are an old folk remedy for treating coughs.
