Inspired by Finn Review

      As soon as I noticed Vintage chewing on everything she could get her hands on, I knew it was time for her Amber necklace. They are a must for every teething babe. Violet still wears hers. Not only do they look adorable with them on, but there are many health benefits to wearing amber.Vintage is loving hers! I feel confident in this amazing stone therapy. The necklace Vintage is wearing is called "Multicolored Round" it has several shades of amber. I adore it! If you are not familiar with the health benefits of amber see the info below that I took from the Inspired by Finn website.

 Our Baltic Amber jewelry is a unique piece of history…The amber beads are fossils from an ancient forest which existed tens of millions of years ago. 
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?

Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc.
In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.
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.

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.
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!

The necklace is as beautiful as the baby wearing it - and different enough from Violet's so as not to confuse them. My birthday is coming up, too! Do they make an adult size? I could benefit from the healing properties.

This is awesome information; thank you! I have always wanted to make my son an amber necklace after seeing them crop up from time to time, but never sat down to do the research on WHY they are so helpful for a teething baby. I agree with Kathleen - I could benefit from the healing properties of amber as well.
