I can't lie, the first time someone told me about Baltic amber teething necklaces, I didn't believe them. I couldn't wrap my brain around a necklace that had such soothing properties that it helped teething babies be calmer, drool less and have less pain. My skeptical mind just didn't think it was possible.
It's said wearing Baltic amber close to the skin is a traditional European remedy for baby teething. A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. Used for centuries in Europe, amber's natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties are perfect to soothe teething babies. Amber is fossilized resin, which warms against the skin, releasing it's therapeutic properties safely and naturally.
Even being a skeptic, I decided to take a chance and order some. Most importantly, I did my research and made sure they were coming from a reputable source that guaranteed genuine Baltic amber. Unfortunately, as these necklaces became more popular, so did plastic knock offs.
Once we started carrying these necklaces, the news spread quickly via word-of-mouth. Parents loved the idea of a way to soothe their teething babies without always medicating. After a few months, I started to believe the hype. Moms and Dads swore by these necklaces and within 6 months, they became one of our best-selling baby items.
The bonus is that they work for adults, too. Migraine sufferers benefit from wearing Baltic amber, because it's said to reduce the frequently and severity of migraines. We only sell one length of necklace, but adults have had luck linking two together and wearing them as a necklace.
