Inspired By Finn Amber Necklace Review and Giveaway - CLOSED

When Eli was three months old I started to look for teething remedies that didn't include over-the-counter pharmaceuticals. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for Tylenol when I really need it, but I wanted to find something that could help Eli grow his pearly whites without having to drug him.  While doing a little research I happened upon a website that has since become a very favourite, Inspired By Finn.


Started by a mom (to a boy named Finn), Inspired By Finn sells Baltic amber necklaces for children and adults. Amber is great for teething (and various other ailments) because it contains analgesic properties.  When warmed against the skin it releases trace amounts of succinic acid, which is absorbed into the skin, benefiting the wearer with pain relief, immune system boosts, and more energy.


To be perfectly honest, I totally attribute the fact that my boys both teethed so incredibly well to the amber necklaces that they have both worn since they were three months old. I hardly noticed either of them teething until I had a finger in their mouths and felt a tooth.  Amber really works!  I have bought several different necklaces from the shop: round and chipped, light and dark.  I have lost a few, so needed to replace them, but I also like to have some choice! My favourite part about them is that they aren't just useful, but they are absolutely beautiful.  I wear mine and feel like I am dressed up.  I love my boys in them, too.  I really think they are great!



Beyond teething, I wear an amber necklace to help with back pain.  My mother swears it has relieved her chronic headaches.  My father says it has helped in his healing with a skiing accident he had last year. My entire family wears amber every single day.

This week I am so excited to announce a giveaway by Inspired By Finn!  One lucky winner will get any in stock necklace, 16 inches or smaller.  Yeah!

The rules still apply with this giveaway: all you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment on any post between now and next Sunday evening. For every post you comment on, you get an entry into the giveaway.  However, you can get additional entries by doing two things (leave a separate comment for each):
1. "Like" Inspired By Finn on Facebook  and leave a comment telling me you did.
2. Go to Inspired By Finn, decide which item you like best, and leave a comment here telling me which it is.

Who's excited?  I am!

Also, if you just can't wait to get an amber necklace, you can get 20% off NOW by following the directions here.

Just so you know, I was not given any products by Inspired By Finn.  I am reviewing this based solely on my experiences over the last 3 years with the amber I have purchased.  I have had multiple wonderful experiences with Inspired By Finn and recommend them whole heatedly.

  1. These are so cute and I meant to buy one along time ago but haven't yet! Relief from teething would be great for Evelyn. I'm with you about giving our children unlimited amounts of Tylenol to relieve the pain. I'm so excited! I liked "Inspired By Finn" on Facebook. :)

  10. I have used baltic amber (from Inspired by Finn) on both my youngest children. Sadly, my 2yo lost his when we moved at the beginning of the year and I haven't had the money to replace it. He misses it. The necklaces made a night and day difference that I noticed if I ever forgot to put the necklace on them during a teething spurt (can we say hello, sleepless night?).

    If I won I would want a 12 inch butter or orange colored necklace that my 2yo can proudly wear.
