Whiskers on Kittens

a few of our favourite things...

CHILDREN AND JEWELLERY

Every Whiskers on Kittens amber product is designed to be worn not chewed. Always supervise children when wearing the necklace or bracelet. Remove the necklace or bracelet when the child is unattended even if it is for a short time. Whiskers on Kittens must also advise that you remove the necklace or bracelet while the child sleeps.

Each Amber item sold by Whiskers on Kittens is knotted between each bead, meaning that even in the unlikely event that the necklace is to break only one bead will come off. The special clasp will also release if too much pressure is applied. This clasp is also smooth and gentle on the skin, and will not catch on materials as a silver hook/ring clasp may. 

Which colour Amber should I choose?

The teething necklaces are available in honey, cognac, lemon, two-tone, multi, and cherry.

Although some websites and information available may suggest that the lighter colours are more effective, we have never sound this to be the case. We suggest that you just choose the colour that you love most!

WILL WATER DAMAGE THE NECKLACE?

We recommend you avoid extended contact with water. With prolonged exposure the thread may become brittle.

Is the amber designed to be chewed on?

The necklace is made for wearing, not for chewing. The easiest solution is to tuck it under their clothing and the necklace will quickly assume body temperature and the child will not be aware that they are wearing it!

As a safety feature there is a knot before and after each bead, so that even in the extremely unlikely event of the string being torn, no beads are lost. amberbebe.com necklaces are secured with a traditional screw clasp, not a sterling silver hook and ring!

WHAT IS THE KEY DIFFERENCE IN BALTIC AMBER?

Baltic amber contains succinic acid – which is not found in amber from other continents and has been used in Europe as a natural anitbiotic and general curative for centuries.  Succinic acid makes up a large part of natural balitc amber.  Succinic Acid is also a natural constituent of plant and animal tissues.

Natural Baltic Amber contains as much as 8 percent succinic acid by weight.

A powerful anti oxidant that helps fight toxic free radicals and disruptions of the cardiac rhythm, succinic acid has been shown to stimulate neural system recovery and bolster the immune system, and helps compensate for energy drain in the body and brain, boosting awareness, concentration and reflexes, and reducing stress.

Even before mankind knew that there were things called acids and antibiotics, the people of Europe recognized that amber had magical curative powers. They used it when we today would use an antibiotic.

Now that modern science has discovered what succinic acid can do, it has confirmed what the people of Europe have known for centuries.

The ancients wore natural Baltic amber necklaces and bracelets, made from amber stones and chips that washed up on the shores of the Baltic Sea, that were thought to have magical curative powers. They surely had no idea that they were high in succinic acid, but they knew they worked magic on their ills.

They used amber in other forms, as well. They made medicines from powder, chips, and stones. They applied amber oils to their bodies to cure ills and slow aging. Amber chips and oils were burned to improve the air in their living quarters and repel flies, mosquitoes and other insects.
