About your Baltic Amber Jewelry - Your jewelry is handcrafted and imported from the Baltic Region; Where the most esteemed type of amber in the world is found.
What is Baltic Amber? Among other things it is a natural pain reliever, an anti-inflammatory, and an antioxidant. It is also beneficial to the immune system, and helps combat infection and skin conditions. Amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments for centuries. Long ago it was considered one of the leading `medicines' of its time.
How Does Baltic Amber Work? When amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils which are absorbed by the skin. Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues. It is very important to the body, and it has a positive effect on our cellular metabolism.
How do I Use a Baltic Amber Teething Necklace? Baltic amber has long been used in Europe for teething discomfort - helping babies and young children stay calmer and more relaxed through teething.
Amber teething necklaces and bracelets are made to wear, but not to chew! Baltic Amber is a fossilized resin, not a stone, and comparatively speaking it is much softer than most stones. The amber may not withstand the pressure of being chewed on.
For best results, the necklace should be worn as much as possible, and worn directly on the skin (tucked beneath a shirt, not on top of a shirt.) Infants/toddlers/children should be supervised while wearing the jewelry, and the jewelry should be removed from the child's neck when he/she goes to sleep.
The string the amber beads are on is designed to stretch when a good amount of pressure is applied, and break if necessary. Each piece of amber is individually double-knotted on the strand. In the event the strand does break, only one piece of amber should come off the necklace.
Clean with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Avoid detergents and cleansers as these substances over time will leave a residue on the amber that inhibits the ability to release healing properties into the skin.
