Many people don’t realise that amber is actually tree resin, not a stone. More specifically, it is the fossilized resin from an extinct species of trees, and is millions of years old!
What makes Baltic Amber special?
Baltic Amber has an active ingredient called Succinic Acid, which has been known to have many medicinal qualities. Succinic Acid is a natural analgesic that assists with pain relief.
Succinic acid is now produced commercially and is approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
Baltic Amber teething necklaces have been a source of traditional healing passed on for many generations and are widely used and treasured throughout Europe as unparalleled alternative medicine with proven health benefits.
Baltic amber in ancient times
While some of us here in Australia may think that amber necklaces are quite a new thing, even in ancient times infants were given amber necklaces to wear.
Amber was thought to contain magical powers, and it was widely known to have healing properties. Besides the healing properties, infants were given the necklaces to guard against baby swapping, offer protection from evil forces, and help against witchcraft!
Ancient Germanic tribes such as the Goths, Nordic peoples, Celts, Romans, Greeks, Arabs and Chinese, all valued amber for its beauty and protection.
Amber necklaces as a baby teething remedy
Baltic Amber is popular with baby teething products as it helps with pain relief, it has a calming affect and it stimulates the thyroid to assist with the redness and drooling associated with teething.
Baltic Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing. By wearing Baltic Amber close to the skin, the amber produces an oil (rich in Succinic Acid) which your skin then absorbs into the body.
Baltic Amber teething necklaces are the ideal solution when you choose to care for your baby in a natural way.
Silicone Teething Necklaces
It’s a well known fact that babies and toddlers love to chew when they are teething.
They will chew on anything they can get their hands on! Our necklaces are designed so that they can have a safe and soft product to chew on when teething.
These necklaces also provide a stimulating object for babies to play with while breastfeeding.
Not only functional, these necklaces are fashionable and look great with any outfit. It can be very difficult for mums to wear long necklaces or jewellery with babies and toddlers, as they love to grab everything and can very quickly break an expensive piece of jewellery.
Our silicone teething products are made with the highest quality 100% food grade silicone, and are guaranteed to be BPA and PVC free.
All Beauty of Amber silicone necklaces have been tested and are fully compliant with Australian & New Zealand Standards (AS/NZS IOS 8124-1:2010).
