Many European families place an amber necklace on their babies (both boys and girls) during the teething phase. Amber, the fossilized resin of ancient trees is known in European folklore for its healing properties. Traditionally, wearing amber is thought to have natural calming, relaxing and analgesic properties for teething pains.
Keep in mind, that any child wearing a beaded necklace should be supervised. Remove while sleeping. Makes a wonderful baby gift!
Teething necklaces are made for wearing (not chewing) when a baby is teething. The warmth from the skin releases healing oils from the amber. According to scientific research the active ingredient in Baltic amber known as succinic acid has shown to improve immunity, stimulate the thyroid gland to help reduce drooling and soothe red inflamed cheeks. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognized by allopathic (standard) medicine as a natural analgesic, which can help relieve teething pain and calm a baby without resorting to drugs.
Teething necklaces are approximately 12 inches in length.
