Q: How does Hazelwood work?
A: It creates an alkaline environment in the body which may prevent or reduce the symptoms associated with acidosis or the body being too acidic. When worn close to the skin, hazelwood works by drawing acidity out of the body and absorbing it into the wood.
Q: What can Hazelwood treat?
A: Hazelwood can reduce or alleviate many symptoms associated with acidosis such as;
~ Acid Reflux, Heartburn
~ Muscular pain
~ Headaches, Migranes
~ Cold Sores
~ Nausea, Morning Sickness
And many more...
Q: Can it cause allergies?
A: There are no known allergy issues associated with hazelwood products. The beads are made from the branch of the tree not
the nut. However IF irritation occurs we recommend removing the jewellery immediately.
Q: Can I get the necklace wet?
A: It is NOT recommended to wear the necklace, bracelets or anklets in pools, spas or in other highly chlorinated water as it will shorten the lifespan of the necklace. However, keeping the necklace moist can help to improve the effectiveness of the hazelwood. So wet the necklace with clean water anytime you need an additional boost.
Q: Should I let my child chew on the necklace?
A: NO. The child should not put the necklace anywhere near their mouth. The necklace works by the hazelwood absorbing acidity out of the body as it is worn close to the skin, NOT by the child chewing on it. If the child can get the necklace in their mouth it is too big. Proper sizing for children's necklaces as a general rule you should be able to put two fingers between the childs neck and the necklace.
Q: What if the bark start to fall off?
A: Don't be alarmed if the bark chips away, this does not interfere with the effectiveness of the hazelwood. It is a natural product and cannot be coated with anything in order for it to perform its function of absorbing acidity.
Q: How long does the jewellery last?
A: Hazelwood should last between 6-12 months depending on the level of acidity within your body. The higher the acidity level, the quicker it will absorb into the wood, therefore the sooner it will need to be replaced. We recommend replacing the jewellery regularly to maximize the healing benefits.
Q: How will I know when to replace it?
A: The core of hazelwood is a cream colour. When the core of the hazelwood is a dark brown colour similar to it looking "wet", or when the symptoms return you know its time to replace your necklace.
Q: How do I know what size I need?
A: General rule of thumb for children is size 11" is for children 0-2, 13" is for children 2-4 and 14" is for 4-10.
Teen and adult sizes are to your liking. Best way to measure is to drape a string around your neck to the desired length and then measure using a measuring tape or other measuring device.
Q: What kind of string do you use?
A: I use monofilament line, which is very tough and durable.
Q: Can they be worn to bed?
A: In order to get the full benefits of the hazelwood it is recommended to wear the necklace as often as possible even while sleeping. However children wearing the necklace should be under the supervision of an adult and therefore it is NOT recommended for young children to wear them while sleeping. Some parents choose to wrap the necklace around the child's ankle and cover with a sock or dress the child in sleepers at sleeptimes so it continues to work but can't be accessed by the child.
Q: At what age can my child wear a necklace?
A: It is at the discretion of the parent. Hazelwood helps with teething and other aliments that irritate babies such as bad digestion, diaper rash and other skin irritations. As soon as you feel your child could benefit from hazelwood, then its possible for your child to wear one.
Q: Is it safe for my child?
A: The necklaces are designed with the safety of the child in mind. For example if the necklace were to get caught on something such as a blanket or stuffed animal, the loop of the clasp would open. The thread of the necklace is designed not to break so therefore there would be no loose beads.
Q: Is there a guarantee?
A: There is a guarantee on workmanship. If for instance the clasp breaks I will fix it at no cost to you. Please contact me to make arrangements should this happen. As for ensuring the product will work for you, everyone has different pH levels therefore it may work for some people but not for others. Or it may help something other than what you are looking for. If you have any questions regarding this, please don't hesitate to contact me for further information.
