I am very excited to bring this review and giveaway to my readers! I hope you enjoy reading about my experience with Inspired By Finn's hazelwood jewelery.
On Monday of this week I received my hazelwood necklace from www.inspiredbyfinn.com and immediately put it on and started experiencing its healing effects! I suffer from chronic heartburn/acid reflux and am always on the lookout for ways to relieve the painful burning and discomfort associated with it. What exactly is a hazelwood necklace and how exactly does it work is what you are probably asking yourself right now, right?
Hazelwood is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people -- It has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body's acidity.
It relieves or prevents ailments such as ulcers, acid reflux, heartburn, skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, acne), arthritis, constipation, migraines, sensitive & bleeding gums, helps reduce dental cavities and more. These necklaces are a great remedy for heartburn and nausea during pregnancy!
Hazelwood necklaces are made from the branches of a hazelwood tree alternated with glass and/or gemstone beads for ornamentation. They are handmade - from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads.
In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace must be worn as much as possible - for adults, we recommend wearing the necklace over night as well as during the day. It is also recommended to wear the necklace while bathing. Keeping the hazelwood moist aids the body in absorbing the beneficial properties of the Hazelwood.
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 –12 months. Higher acidity may mean a shorter lifespan of the necklace. A necklace is losing effectiveness when the ends of the wood beads darken and/or symptoms return.
There you go! as explained by the good folks at Inspired By Finn! And let me tell you ladies, the necklace has REALLY helped me! I have used products from Inspired By Finn before, I used an Amber teething necklace on my youngest son when he was cutting teeth and the healing effects were nearly instant for him, I saw a reduction in drooling and fussiness within hours of putting the amber necklace on him...to learn more about Amber teething necklaces read here http://hyenacart.com/inspiredbyfinn/index.php?c=64&p=14913
Back to my hazelwood experience... I put the necklace on immediately because I could feel heartburn creeping up on me from what I had to eat for lunch, so I figured id head it off and hope to avoid a full fledged attack....and IT WORKED!!! In fact, I haven't had bad heartburn all week and I can honestly say it has to be from wearing the hazelwood necklace. Hazelwood isn't a miracle cure all, you still have to watch what you eat and take care of yourself or you will still experience heartburn and acid reflux symptoms, but it definitely helps and combined with wise eating choices it has been a great heartburn reliever for me this past week and I look forward to using my hazelwood necklace for the next 6 to 12 months (this is the average life span of the necklaces effectiveness, depends on the level of acidity in your body).

While browsing my blog list and all the giveaways everyone is offering, I stumbled across one that really stood out and pulled at my heartstrings and I feel very compelled to share with you all the story of the wonderful woman and family behind the Orphaned No More, 3,000 bracelets for Isabella campaign.
This wonderful family has already adopted 2 beautiful children, a boy from Russia and a girl from China...they long to adopt once more, another girl from China on the special needs list but like many adoptive parents, the monetary obstacles are more than they can take on alone, they need help raising the funds needed to bring their daughter home to them. Adoption can be such an expensive process and thus, the 3,000 bracelet campaign was started! Only 3,000 bracelets and this family will be as close as can be to bringing their new daughter out of an orphanage and into a happy and loving home!!!!
Please visit http://orphaned-no-more.blogspot.com/ and be sure to read the beautiful words written by this mother who is longing to bring her Isabella home http://jewels-of-my-heart.blogspot.com/2009/09/orphaned-no-more-for-isabella-3000.html Also please check out the contest being offered by The Path Before Me http://pathb4me.blogspot.com/2010/05/orphaned-no-more-3000-bracelets.html and enter to win your very own handmade cloth bracelet...but I sure hope you will consider making a purchase or two (or three, or four...) in support of this cause!
I think any parent who adopts a child is an angel sent from above to love and care for those that have no one to love and care for them on this earth, no mother or father, no brothers or sisters, only the hope that someone somewhere will love them and want them and make them a part of their family one day...I believe Isabella knows this in her little heart now and I hope she gets to come home to her family very soon!
