Pure Hazelwood crafts necklaces and bracelets for children and adults in an array of styles and sizes. The necklaces we received for review are well made and very cute! I chose one with amber beads for my son and one with fresh water pearls for myself. I've gotten a lot of compliments when out and about on my son's necklace. The wood is very lightweight; I can hardly feel that I am wearing a necklace and it doesn't seem to bother my son at all. I appreciated that the children's necklaces are designed with a safety clasp that will break under pressure to prevent strangling, without releasing the individual beads.
Pure Hazelwood is a Canadian based company started by Genevieve and Patrick, parents who like most new parents wanted desperately to find natural relief for their child's teething pain. They were given a necklace made from hazelwood as a gift for their daughter and were surprised to discover how well it worked to relive her pain. After the necklace wore out they found it difficult to find a replacement and so they set out to craft their own hazelwood necklaces. Patrick's background in forestry studies helped them to locate locally growing hazelwood trees which they used to craft their jewelry. Eventually they shared their discovery with friends and family who also saw results. They slowly built a business, selling to local pharmacies a and at trade shows. They are now an established business selling internationally with a continued demand for their Pure Hazelwood products which include necklaces and bracelets for adults and children along with lotions and creams containing hazelwood extract.
Hazelwood was used by native aborigines as a pain relief for centuries. Research studies indicate that properties in hazelwood have an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant effect. Studies show that when hazelwood is worn continuously and close to the skin the effect can be absorbed by the body. Pure Hazelwood has partnered with Laval University and TransBIOTech for their research on hazelwood.
After wearing the necklace for 2 weeks I do think it made my son's teething (2 new teeth!) a little more pleasant. He seemed generally more happy compared to the last few times he broke new teeth. Though results can vary, there are many testimonials from people who have seen great improvement in their (and their children's) skin conditions and pain levels when using Pure Hazelwood jewelry.
I also had the chance to try Pure Hazelwood's lotion which I love using on both myself and my son! It has a beautifully light fragrance to it and it is very moisturizing for my skin and has been helpful for controlling my son's eczema. The lotion is made with hazelwood extract and is effective for healing and soothing troublesome skin.
Pure Hazelwood is committed to a holistic style of medicine and creating quality products that offer natural relief from a variety of symptoms including your child's teething pain.
