Hazelwood FAQ's

History Of Hazelwood
Hazelwood jewelry originated long ago when Aboriginal people discovered that they could put Hazelwood chips on their babies’ necks to soothe teething pains and skin irritations. This lost art was revived only a decade ago when a few companies in Quebec, Canada (where the Hazelwood trees are indigenous) rediscovered the unique properties of Hazelwood. Since then, Hazelwood has grown in popularity as more and more people have experienced its benefits.
Most notably, Hazelwood has been able to help many people with skin issues such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and hives, providing a natural alternative to many of the more expensive, intensive and messy treatments.

Hazelwood has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body's acidity. It relieves or prevents ailments such as acid reflux, heartburn, eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, osteoarthritis, teething pain, constipation, migraines and dental cavities (if the cause of the cavities is excess acid - which sometimes it is not).

How does hazelwood jewelry work?

Hazelwood products help to create an alkaline environment in your body, which may help alleviate many of the symptoms caused by being too acidic. Hazelwood, being an alkaline wood, has the natural property of absorbing and neutralizing the body’s acidity through contact with the skin. By doing so, the necklaces can also help with digestion, constipation/diarrhea, eczema, migraines, acid reflux, heart burn, nausea, arthritis, skin problems, etc. If you suffer from one or more of these issues, it is highly possible that you are suffering from an acidity imbalance, and Hazelwood may be able to help you reduce or eliminate these symptoms in a natural way. Most people who suffer from an unbalanced pH are unbalanced towards the acidic. This condition forces the body to borrow minerals- including calcium, sodium, potassium and magnesium- from vital organs and bones to buffer (neutralize) the acid and safely remove it from the body.

*Keeping the Hazelwood moist aids the wood in absorbing the body’s acidity. Wet the necklace any time you need an extra "boost," and feel free to wear it in the shower/bath. Though it is not recommended to wear the Hazelwood in the pool, spa, or in other highly chlorinated water as it will shorten the lifespan of the necklace.


Our Hazelwood jewelry is made from the branches of a Hazelwood tree. No chemicals of any kind (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) are used to grow the trees these necklaces are made from. The necklaces are handmade - from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads. In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace must be worn as much as possible - for adults, we recommend wearing the necklace over night as well as during the day.

The string used for our necklaces is a metal thread covered in nylon. It was carefully selected for the following reasons:
• Maximum resistance to abrasion
• Highly resistant against nicks, cuts and scrapes
• Longer Lasting
• Minimum water absorption
• Suppleness

For our infant and children’s necklaces, we use a barrel clasp fastener. This clasp was put through several tests and is the safest for babies and children. In the even that the necklace gets caught or is under too much tension, the clasp will open on either end
without breaking the string of beads. Because the beads are threaded and clamped at both ends, the beads will not fall out because the metal thread will not break. In the event that the clasp were to open, no small pieces would be accessible for children to swallow.

*In order to ensure both the safety of the infant/children’s necklaces and the effectiveness of the Hazelwood, it is very important to change one’s necklace every 4 months. The life span of the safety feature is 4 months. Beyond this time frame, the necklace should be changed.

WARNING: Children under 3 years old should not wear the necklace without parental supervision. Do not put necklace in the mouth.

Life Span

The life span of the hazelwood will depend on the level of acidity of the body. In general, a necklace will maintain its medicinal benefits for 6 months to 1 year. Higher acidity may mean a shorter lifespan of the necklace. Indicators that a necklace is losing effectiveness are: the ends of the wood beads (the flesh) will darken and/or symptoms return. Don't be alarmed if/when the bark comes off the hazelwood beads; the wood beads will change over time as they cannot be coated with anything in order to perform their function (absorbing acidity).

PLEASE NOTE: In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace must be worn as much as possible. This includes while sleeping and even while showering/bathing.
