Inspired by Finn with Giveaway **Closed**

Rachel, the creator of Inspired by Finn creates and sells baltic amber and hazelwood necklaces, bracelets and more. If you have not heard about baltic amber and hazelwood necklaces let me tell you all about them.

To start Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin. Historically, Baltic Amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments for centuries. Long ago it was considered one of the leading ‘medicines’ of its time. Baltic Amber is the most esteemed amber in the world, and the healing qualities of Baltic Amber make it unlike any other type of amber found in the world.

When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin’s warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin. Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature, and this is what makes it so special. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways including:

  • pain relief
  • boosting your immune system
  • restoring energy
  • maintaining wellness
  • chronic inflammation
  • and more
Now about Hazelwood. 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.

Brandon was sent a combo necklace. Mostly Hazelwood but it has amber beads on it instead of decorative beads. Brandon and I both suffer from eczema. Since wearing the Inspired by Finn necklace his eczema didn't even show up for a lot longer than it usually does and then when it did show up it was not nearly as bad as it usually is. I am a very happy mama!

It is heartbreaking to see your little one so dry and itchy and irritable. He doesn't really know what is wrong and you can only do so much to make it better! Well I am happy that I have found something that works for him. Like I said it making his eczema so much better, less often and when it does come out its not as bad!

If you or someone in your family has always wanted to try one of these, this is your chance. Inspired by Finn has offered one of my readers any necklace or bracelet from her site up to 17 inches long.
