The Amber Necklace

Have you ever seen a yummy little baby with an amber necklace on?
Well, it turns out those teeny pieces of jewelry are more than just good-looking; they’re actually used to help relieve little ones from teething pain!

This is where I tend to get a bit of eye rolling and I hear the word "hippie" covered 
up as a cough... SOOO...
Amber is as old as time itself, dating back millions of years. And yet, it is still believed in today and used for its healing power for treating joint pain, arthritic ailments, and  teething pain for children.

Amber is the fossilized sap, or solidified tree resin, from prehistoric trees that grew as much as fifty million years ago, primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea. When warmed by the body’s natural heat, Amber releases small amounts of a substance called succinic acid. Succinic acid has been shown to stimulate neural system recovery and bolster the immune system, and help compensate for energy drain in the body and brain, boosting awareness, concentration and reflexes, and reducing stress.

When a person wears Amber against their skin, the Succinic acid gets absorbed by the body and is thought to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and provide a general sense of well being. 

Baltic amber has been known to reduce acidity in the human body in a totally natural way. It is said, by having your teething baby wear the necklace everyday, it will reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as; redness in the cheeks, swollen gums, diaper rashes and fevers.  
 Making the necklace a great natural remedy that can eliminate the need for over the counter drugs.
The bottom line? I know mothers that SWEAR by them. 
I've had one on my babe since he was 2 months old. 
He has 2 teeth and we've had no normal teething symptoms.

What do you have to lose? If nothing else, they’ll look adorable!

 Amber on the web.  If in LA, Eggy on 3rd has them!

*When choosing a necklace for your babe, the lighter the color of amber the more succinic acid it contains. Opt for a length that is short enough that babies cannot pull and put into their mouths.
