Today on Bristol Mum is a sponsored post by Jenn Sanders about the benefits of amber necklaces for teething babies…
Many people think of chemicals when they hear or see anything that ends in “acid,” but fortunately, Succinic Acid doesn’t fall under the same premise. It’s an all-natural remedy for teething.
About Succinic Acid in Amber Necklaces
I first learned about Succinic Acid and amber necklaces from my neighbour. She just had a baby, and I asked her one day what was around her baby’s neck.
She was excited to tell me all about the healing properties of the necklace. I was a bit amazed by what it can help with, especially when she said that it can help adults with their health as well. I knew she had to serious when I saw the same necklace around her wrist tucked away under her sleeve.
When it was time for me to have a baby, I did some of my own research. I found that amber is made from fossilized tree resin. The best quality amber is made in the Baltic regions of the world – for instance, Lithuania. It has more Succinic Acid than other varieties.
Since not all companies sell teething necklaces made from high quality amber, I had to search a bit to find a good one. I was happy to find Baltic Wonder, which sources all its beads from Lithuania. They even send a certificate of authenticity with each necklace.
I bought one for myself and one for my baby. I was hoping it would lower her fever, inflammation, and improve her mood and appetite. For me, I was hoping for the immune boosting properties that I had read about in my research.
Europeans and Middle Easterners used to use amber all the time centuries ago to treat colds, the flu, fevers, inflammation, arthritis, and more. They swore by their effectiveness.
The amber is warmed by the body’s heat. When they heat up, they release Succinic Acid onto the skin. Since the skin is highly absorbent, it takes in the treatment oil into the bloodstream. This is when it gets to work inside of the body.
My Results With the Amber Teething Necklace
When my necklaces arrived from BALTICWONDER.com, I immediately put them on myself and my baby.
I didn’t immediately feel a difference, but after about a week, I felt as though my baby was back to herself. She began sleeping through the night again, she was eating normally, and she wasn’t as fussy as she was before using it.
As for me, I felt as though the necklace did soothe me. It may be the Succinic Acid or just the loveliness of the beads, but it doesn’t really matter why it works, just that it does.
Would I recommend the necklace? Yes, I would. I feel like it worked for me, and I am so glad that I was able to find it.
If your baby is suffering with teething, I would encourage you to try it. It’s harmless, and if it works for you, there’s no need to do Motrin and Tylenol. It can feel much better knowing you’re treating the symptoms of teething with natural remedies.
