Each of the bracelets of this duo made in Canada is mounted on a sturdy elastic with no clasp. For one of them, we use beaked hazel wood (Corylus Cornuta), carefully selected by our team of harvesters in Quebec, Canada for our creations. This species of hazel wood has been traditionally used by First Nations for hundreds of years for its healing benefits. Today, it is scientifically recognized for its richness in polyphenols, molecules that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
For more than 20 years, thousands of satisfied customers of all ages wear Pure Hazelwood necklaces and bracelets to help relieve inflammation, commonly referred to as acidosis, in various forms: teething pain, joint pain (arthritis, osteoarthritis), digestive disorders (acid reflux, heartburn, GERD), mouth sores (ulcers), chronic skin diseases like psoriasis or eczema, etc.
Both bracelets are adorned with genuine garnet stones (the January birthstone) and metal pieces, all lead-free and cadmium-free.
As for lava stones, these black beads have a very porous composition, which allows them to absorb essential oil and diffuse it in contact with skin. You can put three or four drops of pure essential oil randomly on some of the lava stones (that is usually enough for the whole piece of jewelry!), then wait a few minutes before putting the necklace or bracelet on. Then, you repeat these steps when needed. You can always use the same oil, or vary according to your desires; we recommend keeping the jewelry on while showering if you want the oil to evaporate faster.
Each essential oil has its own qualities. Some are calming, others may help relieve headaches or digestive discomfort. Therefore, aromatherapy makes a great complement to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of the hazel wood and the energetic charges of semi-precious stones.
