babySounds bizarre?  Well it’s true! Lots of mothers are now turning to the beautiful amber to help soothe their babies drooling and crying. Worn around the neck in a decorative way babies are now sporting this new but ancient look all over the world. Those who see it as an old wives tale or a hoax are quickly in awe at all the research and the most important part, have first-hand experience by using it on their babies and seeing the results.  How does it work and what are the benefits?

It’s not just any amber either, it’s a specific type known as Baltic Amber.  Baltic Amber is a type of amber which has the substance that soothes inflammation it’s known as succinic acid and it’s a naturally occurring substance. “Succinic acid is a natural pain reliever, anti-inflammatory, and a central nervous system calmer. It is so effective on babies and small children because it simultaneously eases their pain while also having a strong soothing effect on their nervous system – all with zero side effects!”-Bouncy Baby Boutique

NecklaceThe Baltic Amber comes from fossilized resin found in prehistoric trees dating back as far as 50 million years ago. This ancient sap has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief, immunity, and to promote fast healing. Amber products are not new to mothers and other who use it for healing. Amber is sold in local pharmacies in many European countries like Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. Amber has been respected for its medicinal qualities for centuries.

Specifically amber reduces inflammation and for the little babies who are teething this helps with their red cheeks. It also stimulates the thyroid gland which controls the drooling. When the beads of the necklace are worn on the skin the babies natural warmth helps release trace amounts of healing oils for healing properties. The beaded necklaces are worn usually around their neck at a short length so that baby cannot grab it. Most children hardly notice they are wearing it; the beads are also individually knotted so in case it breaks the beads all stay intact.

Helping babies stay calm and more relaxed through teething plus sleep through a night is every moms wish for a new baby. Just another way that gemstones and semi-precious stones can be used not only for beauty but now for ancient healing properties. Try it out! Let us know what you think.
