The producers of Forbes Living are excited to announce that Pure Hazelwood products will be featured in an upcoming segment as part of their series on "Natural Products for Better Personal Well-Being." The show is hosted by Forbes Riley, an award-winning TV host in the D2C industry, author, entrepreneur, mother, and one of the nation’s leading health and wellness experts.

While the hazel tree often conjures thoughts about hazelnuts, this valuable tree species offers up much more. The branches of the beaked hazel tree have been shown to produce some impressive healing effects – from helping to ease teething in babies, to reducing the symptoms of eczema and arthritis. Pure Hazelwood harnesses the therapeutic properties of hazelwood, delivering them to families through jewelry, lotions, and ointments. Founded in 2003 by husband and wife, Patrick Lafond and Geneviève Lagacé, Pure Hazelwood is a French Canadian company that's leading the hazelwood products market today.

The beaked hazel, often called "hazel tree,” is a species of shrub indigenous to Quebec. Hazel wood, derived from the hazel tree, is rich in polyphenols and has antioxidant, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory effects. When in contact with the skin, it acts like a patch; hazelwood releases these compounds and brings relief. Several studies have shown that First Nations used beaked hazelwood to cure various ailments, including dental pain, pulmonary hemorrhaging, heart disease, intestinal problems, eye problems, and baby's teething pain. Present day research shows hazelwood can bring relief to skin problems, like eczema and psoriasis; joint pain, like arthritis or osteoarthritis; mouth sores; digestive disorders, such as heart burn and GERD; and teething pain.

Pure Hazelwood's products include baby and child necklaces with a safe clasp, teen and adult necklaces and anklets, single and double bracelets, as well as moisturizing lotion and zinc ointment –both enriched with hazelwood extract.

"We are more than ready to break into the American market and are honored to be able to do it through a host as respectable as Forbes Riley," said Maggie Fontaine, Pure Hazelwood's Director of Business Development. "Forbes Living explores the therapeutic effects of hazelwood, and features the jewelry, lotion, and ointment products created by Pure Hazelwood.
