I am not a big fan of chemicals and pills, I prefer homeopathic remedies. Which have worked great for the most part. But I'm always looking for one more thing to help my poor babies without filling their tiny bodies with chemicals. I found out about Baltic Amber Necklaces. I'm sure most of you reading this are like, "Oh yeah. Know it. Own it. Have one for myself." I on the other hand never knew amber could help SO much!
I sent an email to Inspired By Finn to see if I could review their necklaces. They allowed me to purchase at a discount on of their amber necklaces to try out for my kids. I picked the Youth Baltic Amber in Tea.
For those of you thinking, what in the world is amber and how does it help? Here is some information I have copied from their website:
Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin.
Historically, Baltic 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. Baltic Amber is the most esteemed amber in the world, and the healing qualities of Baltic Amber make it unlike any other type of amber found in the world.
When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin’s warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin.
Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature, and this is what makes it so special. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways.
How can baltic amber help us?
How can baltic amber help us?
- Pain Relief -
- Strengthens the body's immune system -
- Restoring Energy –
The human body naturally produces succinic acid. The salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state.
Succinate is a raw material and a catalyst in the Krebs Cycle which is one of our main sources of energy. During the Krebs Cycle carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are metabolized for energy.
- Maintaining Wellness -
When the human body reacts to stress, the body’s cells begin to use oxygen more quickly. Oxygen plays a central role in the intercellular creation of energy, and a lack of oxygen can result in feeling lethargic.
Oxygen is alkaline-forming in the blood and maintaining a slightly alkaline blood ph helps keep us healthy. Whenever the body functions in a state of low oxygen, it is much more susceptible to illness.
- To help break a cycle of (chronic) inflammation -
Where chronic inflammation is present, disease lurks.
When the body’s cells are chronically inflamed the human body’s immune system response is to increase production of free radicals. Chronic overproduction of free radicals results in inflammatory-related disease. Chronic inflammation is a common denominator of many seemingly unrelated diseases.While wearing a piece or two of baltic amber jewelry may not cure all that may ail you, it has been a proven benefit to many!
Inspired By Finn has a nice selection of necklaces to choose from, so it was hard to pick. I have two kids, one of each gender, so I thought I would get one that would look great on both kids, which is why I picked the Tea. They have a variety of sizes to choose from also depending on your personal preference.
Inspired By Finn also sells Hazel wood necklaces. If you want to learn more about hazel wood necklaces, go here: http://hyenacart.com/stores/inspiredbyfinn/index.php?c=63&p=50010 for a list of how it helps!
I couldn't get a good picture of it on my boy since it kept hiding under his tiny little chin. :-)
We were on a trip to visit my family and my daughter was tired, and crabby, teething, had a cold...etc. We decided to try the necklace out for the first time that weekend and after she had it on about half an hour, she really started calming down! I was pretty amazed. I wasn't sure if it was just her relaxing or if the necklace was really actually helping! So the next day I put it on my son who was a crab from HIS teeth coming in and again, within a half an hour he really mellowed out and seemed so RELAXED!
I am a bit of a sceptic when it comes to things like this so I tried it for quite a few weeks rotating it between my two children. It never failed, every time one kid was wearing it, they really seemed to feel relieved! It was a weight off my shoulders to find another homeopathic method to easing my children's teething pain.
