I recently bought my boyfriend and teenage son a hazelwood bracelet and for myself I bought a Baltic amber necklace. Hazelwood jewelry is made with pieces of wood from the hazelnut plant and the beads are extremely high in anti-oxidants and are effective in reducing acid-based ailments and symptoms such as eczema, heartburn, acid reflux, ulcers, etc. when placed directly on the skin and worn 24/7. Baltic amber has been a natural remedy for pain relief for hundreds of years. As it warms with the body's natural temperature the amber releases oils that contain succinic acid which then are absorbed into the skin and the bloodstream. Baltic amber can help to relieve headaches, migraines, teething pain, arthritis and carpal tunnel pain, and reduce inflammation. It should be placed directly on the skin near the source of pain.
I thought I might benefit from wearing a Baltic amber necklace because I've suffered from chronic neck and shoulder pain, as well as headaches for years. After wearing the necklace for approximately a month, I didn't notice much in the way of neck or shoulder pain relief. However, I believe my neck is a lot less tense because since wearing this necklace I've been able to pop it a few times (which feels fantastic by the way), which I haven't been able to do in years. I did still frequently get headaches but they were usually not as intense and did not last as long so I've been taking a lot less medications for the headaches, which will ultimately save me money in the long run. I did notice that my menstrual headaches were nearly nonexistent while wearing the Baltic amber necklace and they are usually very debilitating to me. And the necklace was made very well and was lightweight so I could hardly tell I was wearing it.
