Lucky Clover St. Patrick’s Event Sponsor Spotlight: Hazelaid #luckyclover

Hazelaid as a company was born after the owners discovered the healing properties of hazelwood and how it could help their third child with eczema. They opened their online store to help others and it soon grew to offer multiple items that had helped their family and their sensitive skin. Hazelaid offers many wonderful natural, organic and handmade items, including hazelwood necklaces, baltic amber necklaces, soap nuts and more. 
I was very excited to be able to do a review of Hazelaid and their hazelwood necklaces. Little man has been suffering from eczema on his arms and cheeks for quite awhile now and I have been looking for something that could help him long term! Changing to an eco-friendly detergent has helped keep the eczema at bay, but he still gets big, red bumps and patchy skin on his arms and his cheeks can get sooo bad! His cheeks sometimes look scaly and he often gets bright, red rashes across those cute cheekies! Poor little man!

So what is hazelwood and how does it work? The necklaces are made with pieces of wood from the hazelwood tree and their usage can be traced all the way back to the Native Americans! If you suffer from issues such as eczema, digestion problems, migraines, acid reflux, heart burn, nausea, arthritis and/or skin problems, then hazelwood may be just the thing you need to help alleviate those symptoms! Hazelwood is an alkaline wood and works to naturally absorb and neutralize the body's acidity through contact with the skin. This is a wonderful natural remedy that can help to alleviate your symptoms.

I received a discount code to use towards 3 products of my choice and picked out a hazelwood necklace for little man, myself and a hazel-amber necklace for hubby! I chose the children's 13.5" Green Peridot necklace for little man, the adult 20" Pink Rhodonite necklace for myself and hubby chose the adult 20" Dark Amber hazel-amber necklace for himself.


So, what did we think?
Little man: "Necklace! Michael's necklace!" (this is what he says when I put it on)
When this necklace arrived, we swapped out his baltic amber for the hazelwood. It sits nicely around his neck and is a great length, while still giving him room to grow into it. Little man has been wearing it for a couple of weeks now and I have noticed the most drastic improvement in the eczema on his arms. The redness has almost completely gone away and the bumps have gotten so much better! Hubby even commented on how much better his arms were looking. You can no longer see the tiny bumps on his arm, although, you can still feel that the skin is a little rougher where they were. There are three bigger bumps that are there no longer red and scabby - they just continue to improve! The redness and scaly skin on his cheeks seems to be getting better also. He hasn't broken out with severe, inflamed cheeks, although he does get the occasional flare up, it is noticeably milder. 

Hubby and I: We both really like our necklaces. Hubby was hesitant about wearing a necklace at first, but I think he looks great wearing it and he wears it every day! The length is perfect for him and he enjoys the benefits of the baltic amber and hazelwood together. I think that it has aided in his neck pain. We are also seeing a chiropractor right now, so I am sure that that is contributing to how much better his neck feels, but still, he has had a less achy neck overall. Hubby also occasionally suffers from heartburn...but so far no heartburn! The main reason that I wanted a hazelwood necklace for was skin problems. Blech. I still break out! While breakouts haven't become a thing of the past yet, I have noticed that my breakouts are healing more quickly. Overall, hubby and I both really enjoy the necklaces and look forward to discovering other benefits from hazelwood. 

Overall, we all enjoy wearing our necklaces. They are well-made, high-quality pieces that have held up marvelously to little man occasionally tugging on his necklace. I think that they are benefiting us all and I love that it is a natural way to help relieve ailments! One thing that I love is that the hazelwood necklaces can get wet! It is nice to be able to leave it on little man or myself in the bath and shower. (FYI- the baltic-hazelwood shouldn't be worn in the shower, since shampoo or conditioner can be bad for the baltic amber) I would definitely recommend a hazelwood necklace if you are looking for a natural remedy to any issues like: eczema, digestion problems, migraines, acid reflux, heart burn, nausea, arthritis and/or skin problems!

  1. Wow! I have never heard of these before. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. Confession: If I won this prize, I'd use the gift code/certificate towards buying an amber necklace for me {most likely the coffee}. My daughter has her own amber necklace, but I'd like one for myself.

  3. I need to tell a friend about this right away. I didn't notice offhand if kids allergic to hazelnuts could use these. I'm very curious about this for reflux and a few other issues, and think the hazel-baltic amber might be interesting to try. Thanks for drawing my attention to this!

  4. The amber necklaces are cute... especially the dark ones.

  5. The CHILDREN HAZELWOOD-AMBER necklace in Milk & Butter

  6. I like the Orange Aventurine necklace!

  7. I would love to get my daughter the Pink Flower necklace.
