For centuries, Baltic amber has been used all over Europe for its healing properties. More recently it has become recognized worldwide for its power to relieve teething pain and discomfort in infants and toddlers. Baltic amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees and is found in areas of Europe near the Baltic sea.
How Does It Work?
When worn, the warmth of human skin releases the healing oils in the amber called succinite which are then absorbed by the skin into the bloodstream. Baltic amber is significantly higher in succinite than other types of amber and is therefore the most effective.
What Are The Benefits?
Baltic amber is a natural analgesic and reduces pain caused by teething, earaches, sore throats, and tummy pain
It has anti inflammatory properties that soothe swollen, inflamed gums
Stimulates the thyroid gland to reduce drooling
Has calming properties that help to alleviate stress and ward off negative energy
Speeds healing and recovery time
Amber is lightweight and warm to the touch unlike other stones, so it is comfortable and non irritating to wear
It is best to have your child begin wearing an amber necklace at the first signs of teething. They should be worn as often as possible for best results. Be sure to remove the necklace when your child is sleeping, or put it around their wrist or ankle instead of their neck during sleep.
My son started showing signs of teething early, at around three months. He has been wearing his teething necklace every day and just cut his first tooth without complaint!
