Amber Baby Teething Necklaces and Bracelets
How do they work?
Amber is a fossilised resin and not a stone so warms against the skin. A natural analgesic, it releases its therapeutic, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties safely and naturally. Wearing Amber against the skin is a traditional European remedy for soothing teething babies.
Are they safe?
The healing oils released from the amber are natural and completely non-toxic. In terms of construction, there is a double knot between each bead so in the unlikely event of a necklace breaking only one bead will come loose. Even if this one small bead is swallowed it is completely non toxic. In fact ancient Greeks and Egyptians used to grind amber and it was taken orally in medicinal remedies. Also, the necklaces have a traditional screw clasp which is safer and cannot be undone accidentally by the baby.
Should the baby chew on the necklace?
The necklaces are designed to be worn and babies should not be chewing on them. It is however non toxic and will not harm baby if they do place it in their mouths.
The necklaces are extremely durable, made using linen or cotton, but should not be worn while swimming or bathing to keep it in its best condition.
Can the baby sleep with the necklace on?
It is not recommended that children have any items around their neck during sleep or any other unsupervised period.
Amber was in legend formed by the rays of the setting sun. In Scandinavia, it is said to be the tears of Freyja, the Viking Goddess of Love and Beauty. In the Far East it is considered to contain the souls of tigers and so bring courage to wearers. Amber is a good-luck talisman to increase natural radiance and attract lasting love. Because of its electrostatic properties, it is considered one of the most healing substances. Acts as a natural detoxifier when worn as a piece of jewellery. Amber is made from fossilised tree resin and each of our pieces contain minute particles of plant matter which makes them sparkle with Light.
