It wasn’t until a few months ago that I learned about hazelwood, which comes from the hazel tree and is a species of shrub indigenous to Quebec. The most interesting part about this plant is that it has healing properties and has been used by Aboriginals for centuries as a remedy to various health issues, including: intestinal problems (which obviously interests me), heart disease, skin problems and pain – including teething pain in babies.
Pure Hazelwood is a Canadian company who has been able to optimize the healing properties of the plant by creating jewellery and lotions. Over the past few months I’ve been testing out the Pure Hazelwood Moisturizing Lotion, which is in enriched with hazelwood extract and my hands have been the softest they’ve ever been during the winter months. I hardly have had any cracks or rough patches, and for the majority of the winter they have felt smooth and silky.
I really love how the cream feels, it isn’t thick and it makes your hands feel like you’re wearing a silk glove (ooh la la!). It isn’t greasy and it seems to absorb right into my hands. The scent smells a bit like a floral shampoo, which I don’t mind, but for men it may be a bit strong. The great thing about this lotion is that a little goes a long way!
Pure Hazelwood’s line of jewelry, is made with 100% natural hazel wood from the Canadian boreal forest and various healing gemstones. I’m very interested in trying out one of their pieces of jewelry, the testimonials online sound amazing!
Check out their website – it’s a pretty neat product!
