How it works:
A common eczema trigger is an imbalance in the body's acidity. The hazel tree is an alkaline wood, so when placed next to the skin, hazelwood will naturally oxidize, thus reducing the overall acidity in the body over time. Hazelwood has also been used by native Canadian Indians for centuries as a natural pain reliever. For best results, wear the hazelwood necklace near the source of the symptoms. If the eczema is the worst on the wrists, buy a larger size necklace and wrap it around the wrists as a bracelet. If the eczema is on the face, wearing it around the neck will provide best results.
When to Replace:
When the wood begins to darken, especially on the sides of the beads, it's time to replace the hazelwood jewelry as its effectiveness will begin to lessen.
