Used for centuries by our ancestors, hazelwood and amber have long been natural remedies for many health ailments. The properties of both help our body to rid itself of toxins and boost immune system levels for optimum performance.Hazelwood
Hazelwood was used centuries ago to help relieve teething pain, diaper rash and upset stomach for babies. The hazelwood absorbs extra acid in the body and helps to balance the body's pH levels. For best health, our bodies should be slightly more alkaline than acidic and hazelwood helps our bodies balance pH by sucking up extra acid that we produce.
Babies and Kids use these necklaces to help relieve teething pain and also to help the body balance itself and relieve skin conditions like eczema and rashes. They are fashionable and beneficial to health.Amber
Used in the middle ages by Europeans, amber releases succinic acid which is a key component in our (KREBs) metabolism cycle. Amber increases energy levels, boosts the immune system and aids with attention. It was used to fumigate after the plague and many people wore amber to ensure better health. Amber also has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which aid in relieving pain.
You can use hazelwood necklaces by themselves or choose the amber/hazelwood combination necklaces for added boost.
Safety Features for Baby Hazelwood and Amber Necklaces
Not all necklaces are equal so be sure to do your research. Our baby and kids hazelwood necklaces (sizes 11" and 13") are made with safety clasps that are designed to "break-away" if they are caught on something and experience resistance. These clasps are tested to be safe for up to 4 months and should be replaced after 4 months.
For parents who do not want baby sleeping with necklaces on, despite the safety feature: simple wrap the necklace loosely around baby's ankle and cover with a sock. This ensure the necklace still stays in contact with the skin and keeps it away from baby's hands. (Do not choose this route when baby is able to pull socks off as the bark from the wood can pose a choking risk.)
Sizing Your Baby or Kids Hazelwood Amber Necklace
Use the chart as a guideline, if unsure, cut a piece of string and use as a reference. For infants, the necklace should sit comfortably but baby should not be able to lift it over their chin (otherwise they can suck on the hazelwood which can splinter and chip; posing a choking risk.)
