It’s Hazelnut Season!

Fall time is hazelnut harvest time, but not so much in the US, except for in Oregon. This is only because back in the 17th Century a Frenchman planted hazels to remind him of his beloved Loire Valley. They’re grown commercially in Oregon and sold to this day, but by and large you’ll find Hazelnuts also known as Filberts, as the beloved nut of Europeans. I remember running down a wonderful countryroad outside Florence, Italy and having to chose my footing wisely so as not to trip, slip on or squash the fallen hazelnuts. They are so, so, sooo plentiful and what they offer us, is truly a gift.


Whether you’re nuts about hazelnuts or not…

Your skin may find Hazelnut Oil is best for:

  • Enhancing it’s complexion
  • Treating Acne prone skin
  • Reducing signs of aging and perhaps
  • Helping you relax from a stressful day

Hazelnut oil does it all! It’s loaded with many necessary nutrients, such as Vitamin E, Omega 6, essential fatty acids and a high content of oleic acid.  It possesses moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties and because this oil is similar to our own skin’s oil, sebum, it can be absorbed easily.

 

8 Things You Never Knew About Hazelnut Oil:

 

1. Hazelnut oil is filled with nutrients.  It’s packed with Vitamin E and essential fatty acids. The high content of oleic acid (fatty acid) possesses moisturizing properties.

 

2. Hazelnut oil has an astringent property, meaning it tightens skin tone. This leads to smaller pores and can clean and clear the skin.

 

3. Hazelnut oil can be used to target acne prone skin. Because hazelnut oil contains oleic acid, it, therefore, helps prevent excel oil production in the skin, while nourishing it.

 

4. Hazelnut oil can help maintain the integrity of our outer layer of skin. It  contains high levels of omega 6 fatty acids, which are essential fatty acids that our bodies can not make on their own. Omega 6 plays a role in skin health by maintaining the integrity of our outer layer of skin.

 

5. Hazelnut oil can be used as a sunscreen. It helps filter out harmful rays of the sun due to it’s Vitamin E content. Vitamin E is a very potent antioxidant that can pick up free radicals in the skin. This not only helps reduce the process of aging, but also reverse any damage caused to the skin.

 

6. Hazelnut oil is a great choice for hair care and especially colored treated hair. It has been known to condition the hair, provide nutrients, and reduce static. For color treated hair, hazelnut oil can help reduce damage and retain hair color.

 

7. Hazelnut oil is very helpful in relieving stress physically and mentally.
You can therapeutically use Hazelnut oil as a massage oil. The oil can help loosen up tired nerves and regenerate and strengthen capillaries.

 

8. Hazelnut oil is the most well tolerated of all the carrier oils.
You can confidently use it with infants in your massage blends.

 

On the branches, the nuts themselves appear to be gently covered in a thin blanket of it’s own once radiant flower blossom, as if it came from it’s center. Well, in fact, it did!
