These Hazelwood & Gemstone necklaces are approx. 32cm or 12.5 inches in length.
Hazelwood has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body’s acidity. It is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people. It relieves or prevents ailments such as acid reflux, skin problems, and constipation. In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace must be worn as much as possible.
Hazelwood necklaces are made from the branches of a hazelwood tree alternated with gemstone beads. No chemicals of any kind (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) are used to grow the hazelwood trees these necklaces are made from. (Often when wood comes from a plantation chemical pesticides and fertilizers are used.) The necklaces are handmade – from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads. All of the metal used to fasten the clasp and the clasp itself is solid sterling-silver (a lead-free metal).
Children should be supervised while wearing the jewelry, and the jewelry should be removed from the child’s neck when he/she goes to sleep.
The life span of the necklace will depend on the level of acidity of the body. In general, a necklace will maintain its medicinal benefits for 6 months to 1 year. Higher acidity may mean a shorter lifespan of the necklace. Indicators that a necklace is losing effectiveness are: the ends of the wood beads will darken and/or symptoms return.
Keeping the hazelwood moist aids the body in absorbing the beneficial properties of the Hazelwood. Though it is not recommended to wear the hazelwood in the pool, spa, or in other highly chlorinated water.
Don’t be alarmed if/when the bark comes off the hazelwood beads – the wood beads will change over time.
Children should be supervised at all times when wearing jewellery, and it should always be removed when the child sleeps. Not recommended for children under 3 years of age except under strict supervision.
