Neutralize Acidity: Hazelwood is thought to neutralize the body's acidity. It is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people. It has been used to relieve or prevent ailments such as acid reflux, skin issues (such as eczema), and constipation.
These Hazelwood necklaces are made from the branches of a hazelwood tree alternating with natural stones. They are handmade - from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads.
Sizing is important! Never buy your child a "one size fits all" necklace. To find the most appropriate length for your child, we recommend measuring using a piece of yarn. You should be able to put two fingers between your child's neck and the necklace and the child should not be able to reach the necklace to his/her mouth. Our necklaces are made for wearing, never for chewing!
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
For children, remove jewelry during nap and sleep times. For children, remove jewelry during nap and sleep times. Hazelwood may be worn while bathing, however it should not be worn in swimming pools -- chlorine can damage the wood.
Children must be supervised while wearing jewelry. Our necklaces are designed, however, with the safety of children in mind. Each bead is individually knotted on the strand. This means that if the necklace were to break, only one small bead would be released rather than all of the beads on the strand. Our necklaces are available with plastic screw or pop clasps, each with a safety release built in.
LIFE SPAN OF A HAZELWOOD NECKLACE
Don't be alarmed if/when the bark comes off the hazelwood beads - the wood beads will change over time.
Warning: Necklaces contain small parts. Children must be supervised at all times while wearing jewelry.
