Like most parents, you may probably be searching for something that will help your teething baby overcome the nagging teething pain. After all, teething can be a painful experience for both baby and parents and thus ensuring this milestone isn’t too rough for everyone.

You may have heard from another mom about amber necklaces to help your teething little one feel better fast. Although these necklaces have increasingly become a popular solution for teething pain in North America, they have been used for decades in Europe. They can easily be found at most pharmacies there.

Prior to delving into specifics on how amber necklaces work, it is also important to know what exactly are amber necklaces so that you can get a better understanding of how these necklaces work.

What exactly are amber necklaces?

Amber necklaces are teething necklaces made from Baltic amber, which is a fossilized resin of trees believed to have abundant healing properties. The type of amber featured in these necklaces is specifically derived from areas surrounding the Baltic Sea, which is situated in Europe.

Which is the main purpose of amber necklaces?

Historically, amber is known for its abundant medicinal properties. Some of its traditional uses include curing blindness, heals sprains and treating a host of painful ailments. Since babies can’t use amber orally, amber necklaces are thus made to provide natural relief to teething pain, by allowing the body to get the requisite pain-fighting properties through the skin. That is why these necklaces are regarded as relatively safe especially for young babies. Their main purpose is to act as a natural painkiller for children.

How do amber necklaces work?

Ideally, amber necklaces are worn against the skin of the teething babies, toddlers as well as adults, to enable the body to absorb all the healing properties contained in amber once they are warmed by the skin. These properties help with easing the pain attributed to growing teeth once absorbed by the body.

Amber is loaded with natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. Its therapeutic and anti-inflammatory properties are recognized by allopathic medicine as a powerful and highly effective natural analgesic (pain reliever), which can help relieve a wide range of painful conditions. Testimonials obtained from hundreds pf people who have previously bought amber products got relief from teething, hormonal headaches, skin rashes and joint pain among other painful ailments.

Due to its anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties, amber is particularly known to aid with easing pain associated with growing teeth, as well as easing joint and bone pain.

Amber is also well-known for being an abundant source of succinic acid, a natural substance present in the human body and nature. It acts as both an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent. Succinic acid is clinically proven to have an analgesic effect on several painful conditions such as swollen sore gums. Today, succinic acid is chemically manufactured for use in the manufacturing of various immune system medications alongside several other applications.

Basically, using amber necklaces and bracelets is pretty easy. Wearing them on the skin can have a soothing and calming effect on teething babies and toddlers and adults.  Once the necklaces come into contact with the skin, its natural heat then warm all analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties present in the amber beads. As a result, they get absorbed in the body thus providing relieve for pain.

Are amber necklaces safe for my kid?
