Amber teething necklace facts:
• Amber teething necklaces has been used as a natural teething remedy in European countries for generations. An all-natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs.
•Amber is a fossilized resin, not a stone. It is therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear.
•Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine.
How do the amber beads work?
When amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases miniscule amounts succinic acid from the amber which are then absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. It stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothes red inflamed cheeks. There are no tablets, medications or pastes that can compete with amber teething necklaces.
Amber necklaces can be worn by children aged between 3 months to 3 years of age - which is around the time baby teething stops. Wearing Baltic amber necklaces on the skin can have a soothing and calming effect on teething babies and toddlers.
As a safety feature there is a knot before and after each bead, so that even in the extremely unlikely event of the string being torn, no beads are lost and there is no risk of choking. The teething necklaces are secured with a traditional plastic childproof screw clasp.
Baltic Amber vs. other types of Amber?
Baltic Amber's healing properties are due to its high succinic acid content. Of all types of amber, Baltic amber contains the most succinic acid (as much as 8%), which makes it the most valued and most beneficial as a natural analgesic.
Why are there varying colours of amber beads?
Every single bead is natural in colour. The therapeutic qualities of the differing colours (Cognac, Honey, etc) are the same. The colours of the beads may vary slightly from the photo due to the natural variations in amber, which includes tiny airbubbles and inclusions trapped during its formation, that make each necklace unique.
-Remove the Amber teething necklace when your baby is unattended, such as at night
-Amber teething necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing
-Necklaces are designed to break if they become caught to prevent strangulation or a hanging hazard.
-Please use caution and supervise your child while they are wearing the necklace.
More Information on Baltic Amber :
Amber is any natural resin which oozed its way out of a tree and eventually fossilized at any time from recent times back to many million years ago. Amber is generally yellow or yellow brown and translucent, and it is pretty when polished. In its fresh form, resin has been known to collect insects or leaves in its sticky clutches, preserving them in visually perfect splendor for thousands of years. Resins which can become amber are found wherever certain kinds of trees oozing sap (a few conifers and angiosperms) are found–almost everywhere in the northern hemisphere of our planet.
Baltic amber (known as succinite) is a specific subset of amber that is found only in northern Europe: it accounts for some 80% of the known amber in the world. Between 35 and 50 million years ago, sap oozed out from a forest of conifers (probably either false larch or kauri) in the region now covered by the Baltic Sea, and eventually hardened into clear lumps. Shoved around northern Europe by glaciers and river channels, lumps of genuine Baltic amber can still be found today on the eastern coasts of England and Holland, throughout Poland, Scandinavia and northern Germany and much of western Russia and the Baltic states.
Baltic amber is fossil resin produced by pine trees, which grew in Northern Europe - from southern regions of the present day Scandinavia and nearby regions of the bed of the Baltic Sea. The climate became warmer and conifer trees started to exude big amounts of resin. Scientists say that amber is a fossil pine resin from this region that has achieved a stable state through oxidation. The word amber meant only one thing – the Baltic Amber. However, the process of how amber is formed traced more amber varieties in different parts of the world. Although more than 125 types of fossil resins are known in the world, these resins are not amber but its relatives. They are mostly found in Europe and America and each of them has its own name. But the Baltic amber is uniquely known for its quality and is most sought after.
