amber teethers

I decided what to buy with my PayPal money!

I read about amber teething jewelry on That Mama Gretchen and was really fascinated by the idea.

According to balticbamber,

"When a baby is wearing amber teething jewelry on the skin, the skin's warmth releases healing oils from the amber (a resin) which are absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream...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 jewelry are a less intrusive remedy for the pain and side effects of teething...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."

I bought two, each a little different from the other, so hopefully they will help me tell them apart in the daylight.

  3. Krystle, I have heard nothing but good things about them! They have some that are dark amber and would look pretty cool on little boys.
    Gretchen, I can't wait to use mine! Glad to know they really do help.
