The captivating tale of the enchanted hazel tree is the most well-known of all the myths and tales about the gifts of nature that find their way into our life.
Greek mythology describes Hermes as the deity of border crossings and the messenger of the gods. He is reported to have carried a staff fashioned from a hazel tree to help him in his journeys through the spirit and human realms! Mercury, the Roman counterpart of Hermes, was similarly endowed with tremendous insight by a Hazel staff.
Celtic folklore from long ago tells tales of the Hazel being connected to inspiration and wisdom. It is believed that this hallowed tree possesses a potent charm that can infuse individuals who consume its fruit.
There there were nine mystical hazel trees that were said to mark the boundaries between the world of the gods and the human race. The hazel trees' branches were claimed to be thick with fruit, and their nuts would frequently drop into a nearby stream where the salmon would eat them. The fish would acquire all knowledge in the world and become renowned as the Salmon of Wisdom after consuming the hazelnuts! The salmon's sides became brilliant, shimmering patches, signifying that the Magical Hazel trees had blessed them. It was thought that those who consumed the hazelnuts would have prophetic talents and lead wise lives!
Since the Celtic words for knowledge and nuts are "cnocach" and "cno," respectively, the tale of Hazel and the Wise Salmon endures to this day!
