Wearing amber may also protect us against the negative influences of electrical equipment like computers, televisions, mobile phone and microwave ovens. Part of what's amazing about amber is that the chemical properties of the resin which when formed acted as a natural embalming agent, with both drying and anti-microbial properties. Ancient Egyptians actually used pine resin as an embalming agent, and doctors in the Civil War, lacking anything else, would sometimes slap tree resin on a wound as a disinfectant and saved lives that way. Worn close to the skin, the body's heat helps release minuscule amounts of oil from the amber, which is then absorbed into the blood stream.
Baltic amber has be known to reduce acidity in the human body in a totally natural way. By having the baby wear the necklace everyday it helps reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as; redness in the cheeks, swollen gums, diaper rashes and fevers.
What is amber?
Amber is the fossilized sap from prehistoric trees that grew as much as fifty million years ago, primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea. For centuries amber has been worn as a natural remedy for pain relief and to promote fast healing and boost the immune system. Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal as a natural homeopathic product for babies and children.
Who can wear it?
Amber necklaces can be worn by children aged between 3 months to 2 years of age - which is about the time baby teething stops. In fact, getting your baby used to wearing an amber necklace from a young age is a good idea as the earlier the baby starts with the necklace, the easier it becomes a part of them. They are so used to it being there, that they don’t pay attention to it by pulling on it or attempting to bite it.
Safety using baby necklace
Each bead is individually hand-knotted so that all the beads remain intact whatever happens to the necklace so there is no danger of choking. The clasp is made from an amber/plastic which will release instantly if one pulls on it. The clasp is laboratory tested to release if excessive force is applied to the necklace, which ensures the highest safety. Unlike traditional clasps used on children’s necklaces (parrot clasp and ring) which do not release, they rely on the ring or necklace breaking to release. Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing! Please supervise your child while wearing the necklace. The string is knotted between each bead so should the necklace break (which it should if necessary), all of the beads will not be scattered.
