How do baltic amber necklaces work?
When a baby is wearing amber teething necklace against the skin, the skin's warmth releases healing oils from the amber (a resin) which are absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. Amber is not a rock and is therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear. Children wearing amber is a very old traditional custom in Europe and the Far East. Amber is known to reduce inflammation of the throat, ear and stomach and to fight inflammation, infections and respiratory disease. Traditional beaded amber necklaces are a less intrusive remedy for the pain and side effects of teething, such as lack of appetite, upset tummies, ear ache, fevers and colds. A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine. These necklaces are long known for the healing properties of amber which include calmative, analgesic, antispasmodic, expectorant, and febrifuge (anti-fever) functions.
What happens if a necklace gets broken?
Silk string is very strong and breaking is unlikely to happen, but even if the necklace breaks only one bead would come off. The Baltic Amber necklace beads are light and small and therefore too small for a baby/child to choke on. But if a baby/child should swallow a bead from the Baltic Amber necklace, it would not be harmful since it is not toxic.
Although we have never had any any incidents that have resulted in harm to infants, there is always a chance they will break the necklace apart and perhaps swallow one of the beads. We have gone to every extent to ensure the safety of the child, the beads are knotted in between each other, and the cord is not very strong, the clasp is a screw clasp. Amber is a natural healing product that works by being next to baby's skin. The child does not have to put the beads in or around their mouths for the amber to work.
