A Baltic amber necklace is made for wearing (not chewing) when a baby is teething to reduce inflammation in the body. The warmth from the skin releases the active ingredient in the Baltic amber, succinic acid. Recent scientific research has proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It improves immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream; it stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling when used for teething and soothes red inflamed cheeks. Amber"s anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic, which will help to relieve teething pain and calm a baby without resorting to drugs. The skin"s warmth releases healing oils from the amber, a resin, which is absorbed into the bloodstream. Parent supervision is recommended at all times. Why Turquoise? TURQUOISE Turquoise is a great immune booster. Like amethyst, it protects and detoxifies from alcohol, poison, pollution, x-ray/sun radiation. Helps anorexia, headaches, and fear. It is used for the throat and lungs for issues of asthma infections, teeth, TMJ, hearing, high blood pressure, and depression. It is used for muscular and skeletal pain, backache, arthritis, whiplash and post operative recovery. Used also for stress related skin disorders. A great anti-inflammatory stone."
