I contacted the owners of HazelAid, and Severine, the company's owner, shared her story with me:
My husband & I heard about these necklaces a bit over a year ago after trying in vain to help our then 3 month old with the eczema that had overtaken her poor little body! Nothing we tried helped, so when a friend of mine mentioned these necklaces to us, we were skeptical but willing to try anything. Her baby son had previously been on medication to help with his severely painful acid reflux but, she explained, within 2 weeks of him wearing the hazelwood necklace, he no longer exhibited any symptoms! She carefully took him off his medicine and he had been fine ever since! Wow! She mentioned that the necklace was supposed to help with eczema as well so we gave it a shot and ordered for our whole family. Since then we have never looked back! Sure enough, within 2 weeks her eczema cleared up entirely and only comes back if we take off her necklace and forget to put it back on (oops!) or when the necklace is saturated and has absorbed all the acid it can. When that happens (every few months or so), we put on a new one and within a few hours to a day or so, her eczema is gone again. I can't explain it but all I can say is we are sold! We have also benefited from how helpful it has been for teething pain for both our son & our youngest daughter. We have since decided to start an online company to make these marvels available to more people and get the word out. We have received so many emails from people telling us they had tried so many things to heal their various issues (eczema, teething, acid reflux, heartburn, & headaches being some of the main ones) and nothing has worked as well as these necklaces! They are so grateful not to be pumping their bodies and their little ones' bodies full of unnecessary and possibly harmful medicines, but instead to be able to treat these issues naturally and effectively.
How does hazelwood work?
Hazelwood has been used for hundreds of years by Native Americans to help relieve numerous ailments, especially teething pain in babies. The wood is an alkaline wood and therefore has the natural property of absorbing acid when it is in contact with skin. Much of the pain associated with teething is a result of excess acid production which is why these necklaces are able to dramatically relieve not only teething pain, but also help clear up eczema and reduce acid reflux! Both of those conditions (as well as others) often find their root cause to be excess acidity.
How does Baltic amber work?
Commonly known as "teething jewelry" in Europe, Baltic amber has been a natural remedy for pain relief for hundreds of years. As it warms with the body’s natural temperature, amber releases its healing oils that contain succinic acid which are then readily absorbed into the skin and then into the bloodstream. Amber is known to relieve headaches, reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach and to fight infections and respiratory diseases as it improves the body’s immunity. Natural amber beaded necklaces are a completely non-invasive remedy for rashes, upset tummies, earaches, fevers and colds. Baltic amber is a natural analgesic that will help calm your child and is recognized by allopathic medicine specialists as antispasmodic and anti-fever. Many adults report improvement of arthritis discomfort and carpal tunnel pain in their hands when wearing amber jewelry.
