Jewellery That FIGHTS? Fights Eczema, THAT IS...& CONTEST!

Pure Hazelwood Eczema Necklace for Adults & Teens
William Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet that "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet."  If the same logic follows, then eczema by any other name would be as itchy.  Okay, I'm making a joke, but it's winter eczema time again for my kids and I.  No matter how hard we try, it doesn't go away, and we consider ourselves victorious if we're one step ahead of it before a big flare up.

Do you suffer from the nuisance known as eczema?  The trouble maker that makes you red, itchy, and a fed up?  Did you know that Pure Hazelwood sells jewellery that FIGHTS...fights eczema, that is!  I tried this jewellery to see how it would work against my eczema, and perhaps you would like to try it too?  They have a cute line from babies, children, teens, to adults--for both boys and girls, men and women.  It also makes a beautiful and inexpensive gift for friends and family that suffer from this nuisance skin condition.  (Prices range from $12.99 to $16.99 CDN only!)

The Pure Hazelwood company believes that their products help to relieve symptoms related to inflammation, including: skin problems (psoriasis, eczema), teething pain, colic, arthritis (joint pain),  digestive disorders (heartburn) and mouth sores.  Now, I cannot confirm or deny any of their claims, but it is worth giving a try if you or a family member suffers from any of these conditions.  Check with your physician if you are not sure if it's right for you.  

Their products include hazelwood therapeutic jewellery such as baby and adult necklaces, bracelets, and anklets--but they also make skin care products like moisturizing lotion and zinc ointment.  Fun fact: their products are made of 100% natural hazelwood from the Canadian Boreal forest.

Check out the information that Pure Hazelwood has offered on the following conditions, below.  I do not endorse any of this information, and recommend that you contact your family physician if you are unsure if the products are right for you or your family members.

Check This TOYLESS Holiday Gift Idea!

What's In the Box?
The Toy of the Moment OR an Education...You Decide
There is a time in every parenting journey, in which a frazzled mom and overwhelmed dad collectively cry: “No more toys!”  This cry is usually heard at 3:00am, after a sharp piece of Lego has harpooned a parent in the tender tootsie, which in turn sets off all the electronic toys to fire lasers, bark, and drive around in the room like a booby trap.  With five children, ages 5- to 10-years old, I’ve often been fed up with all the toys, especially when they lay discarded in a corner.
With the holidays top-of-mind, is there a polite way to ask for a gift that isn’t a toy?  I believe that there is a way, especially for close family relations, and for family friends that inquire what to gift.  And with such a segue, I believe it would be appropriate to ask for an RESP contribution in lieu of a gift.  It’s actually quite easy for both the recipient and gift giver.
RESP Fund Collection Is Easy This Season With Heritage's eGifting Program!
Recently, Heritage Education Funds introduced the RESP eGifting program (a Canadian first), which is powered by FundRazr, Canada’s leading crowdfunding platform .  Through this simple approach, family and friends anywhere can help grow a child’s Heritage Registered Education Savings Plan, and parents electronically collect the funds.  Some fees apply, so do familiarize yourself with FundRazr's rate structure.  
Not only is it a safe and secure way to contribute a financial gift, but the gift is conveniently applied directly to a Heritage RESP.  And in terms of privacy, parents have full control over who receives the gift-giving link.  For peace of mind, do note that Heritage Education Funds have been in business for 50 years.  
Sound like a good alternative to toys this year for the holidays?  Here’s more information about the Heritage eGifting program!
