The Healing Hazelwood-Amber Necklaces are made with hazelwood trees grown in Quebec, Canada. Hazelwood helps neutralize acidity, helps with digestion, constipation, eczema, migraines, acid reflux, heart burn, nausea, arthritis - anything that is caused by an acidity imbalance. Amber is a natural analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-inflammatory and when in contact with the warmth of the skin it releases trace amounts of healing oils. Amber is a natural remedy for the side effects of teething. It has been used for pain relief for hundreds of years.
These Hazelwood-Amber necklaces are made of hazelwood and Baltic Amber beads. They are all natural - no chemicals of any kind are used, and they are handmade. The clasp is silver-plated nickel and lead free. This necklace is made of significantly less Baltic Amber than necklaces made of only Baltic Amber and isn't intended to deliver as much of a benefit as that of an all Baltic Amber necklace.
Keep the Amber beads away from soaps and shampoo, but wetting the necklace with water will aid the body in absorbing the beneficial properties of the hazelwood. Over time, the bark will come off the wood beads and they will become darker from absorbing acidity - this is normal.
