benefits of amber and amber teething products

Europeans have been wearing Baltic Amber for hundreds of years, believing and trusting in its many benefits. In more recent times,  Amber has become most commonly associated with teething relief as a natural anti-inflammatory.  It is said to also have wonderful abilities to naturally assist in a wide range of other common illnesses and complaints, including arthritis, tendinitis and migraines.

 

It has been known to be used to help boost the immune system and combat infections. It is also used by some as an aid to help hangovers and works against other toxins in your body from both environmental and recreational hazards. Succinic acid is now produced commercially, and it is approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

Historically, it is believed that when worn on the skin, body heat causes Baltic Amber to release an oil containing trace amounts of succinic acid. Theoretically, if a small amount of succinic acid is absorbed into the skin, it would trigger the body to react like you've taken a natural Ibuprofen, reducing pain and reducing inflammation.

Whiskers on kittens Amber details

Our gorgeous Baltic amber necklaces are approx 13.5-14 inches. We have found this length suitable for children from age 6months, through to approx age 6. If you require assistance with sizing please contact us.
 Each bead is individually knotted so if the necklace was to break, only one bead would come free. The screw clasp is designed to break under stress.
 Baltic amber works best by being heated by your skin allowing the release of its natural oils. For this reason we would recommend wearing a necklace where possible to allow the most amount of oil to be absorbed by your skin.

Our Baltic amber anklet/bracelets measure approx 14cm, suitable for a child of teething age.
