Before Orlaith came along, I had never heard of an amber teething necklace. Once I was introduced to the product, I was still confused. How do they work? Isn't it dangerous for a baby to chew on beads? Let me clear up the confusion, and let you know exactly how these necklaces work. And by the way, there is no chewing involved!
Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin. Historically, Baltic Amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments for centuries. Long ago it was considered one of the leading ‘medicines’ of its time. Baltic Amber is the most esteemed amber in the world, and the healing qualities of Baltic Amber make it unlike any other type of amber found in the world.
When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin’s warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin.
Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature, and this is what makes it so special. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways.
Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc. In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.
Cool, huh? And they really do work. The necklace greatly reduced the teething pain Orlaith was going through. I was able to all but stop giving her any medication. I really love this product!
The lighter/cloudy amber contains more succinnic acid. Orlaith is wearing the Butter Round necklace in 13-13 1/2 inches. She has plenty of room to grow in it too! She wears the teething necklace almost 24/7. We only take it off when she is bathing. When she takes a nap or goes down for the night, I wrap the necklace around her ankle and tuck it under a sock.
