Hazelaid was born when our family was introduced to the amazing healing properties of hazelwood jewelry. Made with pieces of wood from the hazelnut plant, this jewelry has the unique property of absorbing excess acid from our bodies when it is in contact with our skin, providing most people with a more balanced PH and relief from any acid-based ailments.
We first heard about this jewelry when our third child was very little and was suffering from severe eczema. We tried a whole bunch of things to alleviate her symptoms and nothing seemed to help. Finally a friend told us about how her son’s severe acid reflux had been dramatically helped by wearing a hazelwood necklace and that it potentially could help with our daughter’s eczema since the root cause of both is often related to excess acidity. We were skeptical but intrigued, and decided we had nothing to lose by giving it a try.
Within a couple weeks of wearing the necklace and using the hazelwood zinc oxide ointment, her skin was dramatically improved and she was also spitting up a lot less. We were floored. Moreover, whenever we would take the necklace off for any reason the eczema would flair back up, only to go down again after we returned the necklace. It was seriously like magic to us, and we realized that people needed to know about this. (Click here to see before and after pics of our experience.)
We launched our little online store in April of 2008, shipping out of Portland, Oregon. In 2010 we moved to Montreal and brought the business with us. Today we have several friends and family members that work with us to provide this products to the world in what we hope is a friendly and accessible way!
