About HazelwoodHazelwood is an alkaline wood that has the natural property of absorbing and neutralizing the body's acidity. When worn close to the skin, hazelwood works by drawing acidity out of the body and absorbing it into the wood. By neutralizing the body’s pH, hazelwood helps to alleviate the symptoms associated with infant teething. In addition to this, hazelwood has been found to relieve or prevent ailments such as acid reflux, heartburn, eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, osteoarthritis, constipation, and migraines. The life span of your necklace will depend on the level of acidity in your body. In general, a necklace will maintain its medicinal benefits for 6-12 months. Higher acidity may mean a shorter lifespan for the necklace. Over time, the bark will come off the wood beads - this is normal and does not change the effectiveness of the hazelwood. When the hazelwood turns dark on the ends (the flesh) or if your symptoms return, it's time to replace the necklace or bracelet with a new one.
Amber has anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties that aid in the reduction of acidity in the body, pain, swollen gums, nappy rash, and fevers. When the necklace is worn against the skin, the body's warmth releases the amber's ancient natural oils. The body then absorbs these oils, rich in therapeutic succinic acid. The positive influence of succinic acid has been scientifically proven by Nobel-prize winner Robert Koch and recent scientific research. Succinic acid is a fossilised resin produced by plants 40 to 50 million years ago. In nature, the resin would have been used by the plant or tree as a natural antibiotic against infection, viruses, and physical attack. The plant would also use the resin like a wound dressing. The healing properties of succinic acid have been preserved via fossilization and are released into the skin once the amber has been warmed. Amber is a proven solution to teething pain that has passed down for generations.
