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.
