•●~Amber Necklaces ~●

Baltic amber has been used for hundreds of years by countries surrounding the Baltic Sea. Amber is made from the sap of conifer trees located in the dark forests in the region. For as long as it’s been used, it’s been notorious for being nature’s cure-all.

Natural Baltic Amber was first used for teething relief in infants and toddlers but it is increasing in popularity amongst pregnant women.

Because there is no medicine or chemicals found in amber and it is a natural substance, it is safe to use by pregnant women. Some pregnant women have reported that the amber necklaces have helped in relieving headaches, nausea and round ligament pains. 

In the beginning:

For centuries, Europeans have been using Baltic Amber teething necklaces for the relief of teething pain in babies. This all-natural remedy can be just as effective as drugs and the harsh ointments that many parents have used over the years on their babies and toddlers. It’s also better than teething toys because some babies have suffered mild scrapes from them, especially if they are frozen or cold due to their rough exteriors.

Natural Baltic Amber teething necklaces can reduce pain and boost mood. The Succinic Acid within the beads treats teething pain naturally without side effects.

🤔How Does It Work?

Amber is a fossilized tree resin. While amber can be found in many parts of the world, the most effective amber is found in the Baltic regions, such as in Lithuania.

Amber is a natural anti-inflammatory, immune booster, and pain reliever.

When amber is worn against the skin, the body’s temperature heats the amber, which then releases the treatment oil onto the skin. The oil then passes through the skin and into the bloodstream.

Baltic amber necklace is used in the place of OTC pain medication. Amber has a substance known as succinic acid, which is a natural anti-inflammatory. Not only does amber mask pain, but actually help cure pain by decreasing inflammation present in joints and ligaments.

Succinic Acid is an oil found in amber and has been used to treat all types of ailments such as the common cold, inflammation, fevers, and pain. It’s also known for its immune-boosting properties to sustain health.

🧐Identifying Real Amber

Amber teething necklaces are sold around the world. Many can be found on the internet making them highly accessible. While this is a great source for looking for an amber necklace, it’s wise to research the source of the amber beads before buying.

Amber comes from fossilized tree resin. Amber contained Succinic Acid, which is the treatment oil that helps babies with their pain, inflammation, and other teething symptoms. If a piece of amber isn’t high quality, the amount of treatment oil available won’t be enough to soothe any ache or pain. Therefore, it’s important to know what to look for when shopping for an amber teething necklace.

Watch Out for Amber Imitations

You should look for imitations first when shopping for amber teething necklaces. Copal, glass, phenolic resin, celluloid, and casein can look like amber. They can have the dark, brown amber look. Before purchasing an amber teething necklace, research where the seller sources their amber beads. Do research on that source, and see if they provide a Certificate of Authenticity. This is what can help you know whether you’ve found true amber.

Testing Amber

If you purchase amber from an online source, be sure the seller provides a money back guarantee. When you receive the product, test the amber by doing a salt water test. 

Create a mixture of water and salt (two cups warm water and a quarter cup of salt). 

Place the amber into the bowl. If it floats, you have real amber. If it doesn’t, return it immediately.

👍Taking Care of an Amber Necklace

Amber necklaces are durable and can withstand a lot. When an amber necklace becomes dirty, here’s how to clean it:

Simply wipe the amber beads with water and a mild soap. Hand soap works well, or any other soap works well.

Never use hot water to clean amber teething necklace since the treatment oil is activated when the beads become warm. A cool water temperature is best for washing the necklace.

To dry the necklace, simply wipe it with a soft cloth. You may want to set it to the side to dry completely before using it again.

💗Storing the Amber Teething Necklace

It’s best to store the amber teething necklace in a dry, cool place. Wrap the necklace in a soft cloth and place it in a drawer. 

Amber necklaces can be worn by pregnant women from the first trimester through towards end of pregnancy and birth.

Pregnant women should always consult with their primary healthcare provider FIRST, before trying any "treatment".
