Inspired By Finn-Hazelwood Necklace

First of all I wanted to thank Inspired by Finn for allowing me to review their Hazelwood necklace. I chose this product because I purchased their Baltic Amber Teething Necklace from and LOVED it! My daughter has been much less fussy and the painful effects of teething have seemed much lower when wearing her necklace. It is also very cute and she gets SO many compliments on it. The attention she gathers allows me to explain the holistic healing nature of amber and its effects on teething as well as many other ailments. Since then 4 of my mommy friends have purchased Amber Teething Necklaces for their children.

The hazelwood necklace I got was for me! it isn’s often that I buy things for myself, any of you moms out there I am sure you can relate. The first thing I notice upon opening the package, other than the how nice it looked, was that it said to wear it all the time! Wear it while you sleep and especially when bathing! This is the kind of necklace for me! I am an immutable jewelry mama. I don’t change my jewelry or take it off, so this was PERFECT. I was thinking I was going to have to get into the habit of taking my necklace off before the shower, and I was alright with that, but got even more excited when I found out that, not only did I not have to take it off, but it BETTER if I leave it on!

A little bit about me; have eczema and often am itching and scratching at my skin. When I was pregnant I had some pretty bad heartburn. There fore reading about Hazelwood, I was intrigued that maybe this might be the answer for my dry, chapped, cracked, itchy, and at times, bleeding skin.


Hazelwood Necklace (from Inspired By Finn’s website: )

Wood from the Beaked Hazel (Corylus cornuta) tree has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body’s acidity. It is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people. It relieves or prevents ailments such as acid reflux, ulcers, heartburn. It may be helpful with skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, acne), arthritis, constipation, migraines, bleeding gums, and more. These necklaces are a great remedy for heartburn and morning sickness during pregnancy! In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace must be worn as much as possible, including over night.

Hazel wood necklaces are made from the branches of a Beaked Hazel tree alternated with gemstone beads. No chemicals of any kind (pesticides, fertilizers, etc.) are used to grow the trees these necklaces are made from. (Often when wood comes from a plantation chemical pesticides and fertilizers are used.) The necklaces are handmade – from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads. The clasp is a sterling-silver plated lobster clasp.

The life span of the necklace 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 will darken and/or symptoms return.

Keeping the wood moist aids the body in absorbing its beneficial properties. Though it is not recommended to wear it in the pool, spa, or in other highly chlorinated water. Don’t be alarmed if/when the bark comes off – the wood beads will change over time.


Not only does it look nice, help the body, and work even better when leaving it on, but I am hoping for long term effects in the future! So far, so good! Thanks to Inspired by Finn and the wonderful healing powers of nature!
