Amber Teething Bracelets
Amber is fossilized tree resin from ancient forests. Amber is not produced from tree sap, but rather from plant resin. The hardening process of Amber is known as polymerization, which fossilizes the resin over many centuries and makes it hard and sturdy. These necklaces have a twist on secure clasp!
Where does it come from?
The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber, called Baltic amber or succinite. It dates from 44 million years ago (during the Eocene epoch). It has been estimated that these forests created more than 100,000 tons of amber. At Powell’s Owls we source all our amber from Lithuania to ensure it is 100% real and genuine.
How does it help me and my baby?
Amber contains “succinic acid”, a natural analgesic and healing agent. When the amber jewelry is warmed against the body, the succinic acid will be absorbed through the skin helping with pain relief. Used for centuries, Baltic Amber has been used for a variety of ailments from teething pain (children) to arthritis, mental clarity and healthy living (adults)
When a baby wears an amber teething necklace (amber teething bracelet/amber teething anklet) made of 100% Baltic amber, the body heat of the baby triggers the release of healing oil (Succinic Acid) into the bloodstream. Succinic Acid is thought to be responsible for most teething benefits that are provided by amber jewelry. The anti-inflammatory properties soothe red inflamed cheeks and gums and the amber’s calming properties will help calm and soothe a baby without resorting to drugs.
Can my baby chew on it or wear it to bed?
No – Amber jewelry is not to be chewed or eaten. We offer a wide range of sizes to ensure that the baby cannot get the necklace into his/her mouth. We also recommend that it only be worn while being supervised.
