Amber Teething Necklaces – BPA Free

amber teething necklaceI had a slap my forhead moment not longer after I posted my BPA free teether and pacifiers post. Why? Because I forgot one very important teether! One of the comments on that post about non-plastic teethers jogged my memory. About a year or so ago I ran across amber teething necklaces. They are supposed to alleviate teething pain but here is the kicker…your child does NOT chew on  them…only wear them around the neck…like a necklace.

Amber is a natural substance from trees. It is actually fossilised sap. Remember in the movie Jurassic park when excavators were looking for amber with ancient mosquitoes inside? Well, this is the same stuff…but hopefully sans the mosquitoes. ;)  It has been used for a long time in European countries for its natural pain relief and natural anti-inflammatory properties due to the slow release of its natural oils upon the warming of the stone from the skin. The active constituent present in the resin is called succinic acid, this is what your body absorbs.

All over Europe, amber has been used to help with certain ailments such as the pain and inflammation caused by teething. It has been such a prized possession that for some time, pieces of it were used as currency. Like I said before it is not intended for chewing but it is okay for toothless babies to gum them (UNDER SUPERVISION).

I know several moms that swear by them and they are truly gorgeous as well so even after your teether has grown they make a lovely piece of jewelry.

    I just might have to buy one! My 14 month old has yet to cut any teeth and loves wear necklaces and these are beautiful! They are also pretty inexpensive. I can’t wait until my other half comes home so I can tell him about these. Thanks for posting!

    Amber is also supposed to offer protection to the wearer. My 5-year-old wears a baby-size one from Nova Natural and it fits quite well. He never takes it off and it’s beautiful.

    Oh yeah, sure!

    They’re not just for teething. They’re for arthritis and all those other things too! I know someone who sells these and have personally seen her sell them to adults and elderly. I have a couple. I have a set that matches DD! We both have a necklace and a bracelet- so cute! I got in a car accident a few years back that re-injured and old injury. I’m not “down” with aspirin so I tried this out and amazingly the days I wear it I seem less bothered. They also look cute in an earthy pretty way! Amber Teething Necklace for everyone!!!!

    ok, question…can the baby chew on them? My baby is always pulling for my necklace and I want something he can chew on. thanks.

    They’ve been super. It might be too early to tell, but both of the kids have been way less irritable today. I haven’t given them any tylenol for teething pain, but they seem happy and pain free with the necklaces. Plus, the necklaces are adorable. I took the kids strolling in the mall today and got many compliments.

    Amber is incredible and unmatched in its natural healing powers – and not just for children. People have used amber for centuries for arthritis, respiratory infections including chronic asthma, as a stress reliever that interacts with the body’s nervous system and much, much more. Researchers and scientists have expounded on the exceptional ability of Baltic Amber to thwart infection and enhance immunity. Today, everyone is turning more toward homeopathic medicines – Amber is at the top of the list in it’s healing abilities.
