I have suffered from eczema since I was 11-years old. I’m always looking for natural remedies to enhance what I’m already doing, so when I read that hazelwood jewelry can be used as a natural eczema remedy, I was excited to give it a try.
According to Hazelaid, approximately 70% of eczema cases find significant relief from wearing a hazelwood necklace. That seems like a pretty good ratio to me! So, I chose the Hazelwood and Jade necklace to review since I have always loved jade.
These hazelwood necklaces are made from the branches of hazelwood trees alternated with various beads for ornamentation. No chemicals of any kind (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) are used to grow the hazelwood trees these necklaces are made from. The necklaces are handmade – from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads.
I was very impressed with the quality of the necklace. I knew if it didn’t look good, I wouldn’t want to wear it, but I haven’t taken it off since I got it. You are supposed to keep hazelwood jewelry on, with full skin contact, 24/7. It takes approximately 2 weeks before you should start seeing any results.
Hazelwood has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body's acidity. It is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people to reduce their babies' teething pain. It relieves or prevents ailments such as acid reflux, eczema, heartburn, constipation and acne. In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace must be worn as much as possible.
Because of this, you do leave it on in the bath or shower so it gets wet at least every other day (keeping the hazelwood moist aids the wood in absorbing the body’s acidity). However, it shouldn’t come into contact with chemicals of any kind, including sunscreen, chlorinated pool water, lotion, etc.
It’s hard for me to say 100% whether the hazelwood is completely responsible, but I haven’t had any new eczema outbreaks on my hands since I’ve been wearing the necklace. I ordered a bracelet for myself to wear on whichever arm my eczema seems to be flaring up on as an additional precaution.
When I was reading the Hazelwood necklace packaging, I saw that hazelwood can also be a potential remedy for tooth decay. Since we have been battling tooth decay in the girls, I decided to order each of them a hazelwood and amethyst necklace.
They have only been wearing them for a couple of days, but I’m hopeful that the hazelwood will at least help halt any future decay. I’ll keep you posted.
