mized necklaceOne day a few local moms came in to shop our cloth diapers and non-toxic finds at www.EuphoriaBaby.com.  They came with their adorable toddlers, and I couldn’t help but notice that both children wore necklaces.  The little girl wore a solid cognac amber beaded necklace, while the little dude sported a multi-colored version.  Both looked adorable!  As we talked, one of the moms decided to share the story behind the necklaces.

What I initially took for funky, crunchy kid’s jewelry were actually beneficial necklaces made of Baltic amber.  Have you heard about amber teething necklaces or amber nursing necklaces?  I didn’t think much of them, but I had never really given them a chance or done any research.  These two moms just raved about how helpful they are.  They said the necklaces really help with teething and general irritation.  In fact, they can absolutely tell the difference when the necklace isn’t on!  One mom had loaned her necklace to a friend round cognacwhose baby was really struggling with teething.  That baby did better and kept using the necklace… all the while the toddler was acting irritable.  Mom ordered another necklace to replace the one she’d loaned and her son improved immediately.  I know it sounds crazy, “weird” and unlikely, but if you do the research, it’s not actually strange at all.

amberBaltic amber is not really a stone, it’s 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.

How does it work?  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:

  • Pain relief – it has analgesic properties
  • Immune boost – naturally increased the body’s healing abilities
  • Restoring energy – the salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state.
  • Maintaining wellness – enabling full oxygenation of cells
  • Anti-Inflammatory – helps break the cycle of chronic inflammation.  Inflammation is part of the disease cyle.

    Rachel,
    Thank for you taking the time to explain the point behind the teething necklace! I always thought it was just that the babies chewed on them…. anyway, how cool! I’ll definitely be passing this information along to friends with teething babies.

  2. Very excited about this giveaway! I wish I had had this for my first born, but I’m all gung-ho on trying it out on my second child. Any help would be appreciated. Teething is not fun!

  3. Erin Says:

    I’ve never seen these necklaces before, but it sounds like a great idea and I’d love to try it out!!

  4. Grace Nathan Says:

    That’s a fabulous idea! Anything to get my son to feel soothed and to stop using me as a chew toy. If it fastens magnetically though, won’t a baby just pull it off, or is it more for toddlers?

  5. Carol Says:

    I keep hearing about these necklaces…I guess the Universe it trying to tell me something! I’d love to have one to try out. Thanks!

  6. Felisha Says:

    I am preggo w/ number 2 and so not looking forward to the teething stage again. 🙂

  7. Miranda Says:

    oh my goodness, that sounds wonderful! one tooth down, like a million to go, and isaac thinks it’s hilarious to bite me. I’ll take one!

  8. Miranda Says:

    okay, here’s my link. woohoo!

  9. kari Says:

    my second baby is getting her one year molars right now! we need one of these!

  10. Mariellen Says:

    This is the first time I have heard about these necklaces. This is my second baby and anything I can do to ease his pain naturally, I would love to try.

  11. Brandy F. Says:

    Fantastic giveaway! My little boy still has 4 months of development before he enters this world, but it sound like this is something I should have on hand ahead of time!

  12. Katie M. Says:

    I have always wanted to try one of these necklaces! My 1 year old is cutting his molars and now sounds like a perfect time to snatch up one of these.

  13. Viviana Says:

    My little son is teething and this would be great for him! Sounds like a great alternative to other pain relief options!

  14. Amanda Says:

    I am at my wits end! My first baby never seemed to be bothered by teething and was so easy going… Baby number two is MISERABLE! I just started researching these necklaces and I would LOVE to give this a try. Teething gel and tylenol seem to do nothing for him… not to mention I don’t really like giving them to him. :/

  15. Emily Streich Says:

    I just heard about these necklaces recently and have been looking for them everywhere. When I saw that I could have a chance to win a free one I jumped on it! I will forward the information you gave in the post to many of my friends…We all have teething babes right now!

    Plus they are beautiful…

  16. MommytoGeoffrey Says:

    I didn’t realize there were differences in teething necklaces. I’ve never heard of the Amber ones! My little one has two teeth, but has more coming in, and is not a happy camper!

  17. Windy Says:

    Thank you for sharing. I saw an amber teething ring before and thought it would be fun to get one as my daughters name is Amber, but I didn’t realize the healing properties of amber. Wow.

    Windy

  18. Svajunas Says:

    Amber is amazing in its healing powers and not just for children. For centuries people have used amber for arthritis, respiratory infections including chronic asthma, as a stress reliever that interacts with the body’s nervous system and much much more. Explore more research from the medical community and you will see some amazing results for natural Baltic amber.
