Do you ever get toothaches? When you do, you have the life experience to understand you have a problem, and either treat it at home or put in a call to your dentist.
Imagine being a baby and going from living a pretty comfortable life to suddenly having mouth pain. Not only does it hurt, but you don’t understand why it hurts or how to make it better. Chewing on your hands, toys, or anything you can find can provide temporary relief, but overall, this teething business is misery.
Luckily, the medicinal benefits of Baltic Amber are coming back into style, and simply wearing jewelry made with it will help with all kinds of pain, including but not limited to teething.
Amber is hardened resin from fossilized trees, and most of it is several millions of years old. It’s been used in jewelry since 11,000 BCE, if not earlier, and has even been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. Clearly, it’s not just a fad — it’s a useful resource regaining its popularity.
A genuine Baltic Amber necklace or bracelet is a natural form of pain relief for babies, toddlers and adults alike. Baltic Amber contains a resin called succinic acid, which is an anti-inflammatory and analgesic. By wearing the amber against your body, your skin absorbs trace amounts of the oil and provides you with the pain relief and anti-inflammation. Adults suffering from pain or inflammation from arthritis, headaches, or general pain can also benefit.
Unlike traditional teething products, amber is not intended to be chewed. A necklace shouldn’t be long enough for a baby to get into their mouth. Each bead is individually knotted, so should the jewelry brake, beads won’t go flying — that and a safety-tested breakaway clasp eliminate choking hazards.
Juliane Webster started Amber Goose, a leading Baltic Amber jewelry company, in 2010.
“I found it difficult to find products that I could trust to be completely safe, effective and truly natural for my little ones,” she said. After much research, she began making and importing all-natural products for her own use. She decided to embark on a mission to make natural products more readily available to families in North America, and Amber Goose was born.
Now, the company sells over 35 styles and colors of genuine Baltic Amber teething necklaces, as well as bracelets and necklaces in adult sizes. Their latest addition is unique, colorful gemstones alongside the amber beads in both baby and adult sizes.
Besides their beauty, the gemstones also provide their own benefits:
Ranging in color from deep purple to pale lavender, amethyst is one of the most popular gemstones, believed to clarify mental acuity and provide overall balance. It has been said to bring serenity and calmness to its wearers.
Also known as rose quartz, this stone is thought to be a healing aid for the heart chakra. When in balance, this can provide calming effects to the person wearing the stone.
This bright and lively stone is said to provide energy to the wearer, and is heralded as the stone of enthusiasm. Turquoise encourages the artistic side of the wearer, while encouraging attention to detail.
