Long believed to have healing properties by Eastern Europeans, Baltic Amber necklaces are finally growing in popularity in America. This resin is believed to release a healing oil (succinic acid) when heated by the body’s natural warmth, which is thought to reduce inflammation and other common ailments. One of the most commonly targeted ailments of which Baltic amber necklaces are used for is teething! While my babies are long past the teething stage, I was happy to work with Amber for Babies in exchange for my honest opinion, as despite the name, Amber teething necklaces, are not just for teething!
What did I think?
The Baltic Amber Teething Necklace that we received is a beautiful honey color and about 12 inches long. This is perfect for your little one with teething concerns or an older child with any sort of aches and pains. It can also be doubled over and worn as a bracelet for adults. This 100% genuine Baltic amber necklace is light, has a safety clasp and the beads are individually knotted, making it less likely that you will have a bead mess if it should break (and therefore, less likely that if you are using with a baby that one can be swallowed!). Now, while it is called a teething necklace, it does not actually go into anyone’s mouth – ever. You simply need the Baltic amber to make bead to skin contact so that the succinc acid can be released. My youngest daughter has been sick over the last few days and feeling crummy overall. She was complaining of bodyaches (and assuming she had the same flu I had a week ago – the poor thing is understating that!). I gave her this necklace, which made her feel better right away, simply because she thought her new “golden necklace” was pretty, but then I noticed that as she wore it, she seemed to settle down a bit. I even noticed that her nose was running less, which was a minor miracle from the faucet it was earlier in the day! Overall, we noticed an improvement in how she felt while wearing the Baltic amber teething necklace and will definitely wear it more frequently.
I have heard from other friends how much they love using amber teething necklaces with their babies for a natural way to decrease pain with teething. I saw it work for my little one’s muscle soreness and runny nose without having to pump her full of additional medications. While it may not work for everyone, I would recommend giving an amber teething necklace a try for pain caused by inflammation before introducing chemicals into your or your child’s system.
