Baltic Amber Teething Jewelry from Inspired By Finn: Review and Giveaway

BALTIC AMBER JEWELRY
Review and Giveaway



I am extremely fortunate to be able to collaborate with Rachel at Inspired By Finn and bring you the opportunity to try some of her wonderful healing jewelry. Rachel carries both Baltic Amber and Hazelwood Jewelry. She was gracious enough to send me an Amber Necklace for Ophelia. We are very happy with the results so far, but first let me give you a bit of information on both Baltic Amber and Hazelwood Jewelry.

WHAT IS BALTIC AMBER:
"Baltic amber is ... 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:
  • Pain Relief
  • Strengthen the Body's Immune System
  • Restore Energy
  • Maintain Wellness
  • To Help Break a Cycle of (Chronic) Inflammation
You can read more details, as well as other testimonials, on Inspired By Finn's Informational page about Baltic Amber.

Why are we using Baltic Amber for our children? Well, primarily it is for pain relief from teething. When Rowan was 4 months old we got her a Baltic Amber necklace from our local cloth diaper store. She has been wearing it pretty much full time, ever since. While it does not provide relief for acute bouts of teething pain, she seems to be virtually immune to the general aches and irritability that normally accompany the teething process. Back in March, Rowan's necklace broke - and we went about 6 days with no Amber. And the difference in her behavior during that time was incredible. She was noticeably more fussy and in obvious discomfort, especially in the evenings. She didn't sleep well any of the nights that we did not have her Amber. Once the necklace was replaced, she was back to normal within the day.

I truly regret not putting Amber on Ophelia when she was a babe and cutting her teeth. Now, why have I decided to put Amber on Ophelia? Now? After she has grown all 20 of her first teeth? Well, if you have ever been around a toddler, you know that not a day goes by when they don't trip and fall, stub a toe, fall off of, over, or because of something, or generally get bonked in some way or another. I thought perhaps that wearing Amber might help her get through the general aches and pains that being a total klutz on a daily basis brings. And I'm pretty sure it's helping. She is less moody and is actually sleeping at nap time again a few days a week. And we are having way fewer distress tantrums throughout the day as well. I'm glad I made the decision to put Amber on her and I am grateful to Rachel at Inspired By Finn for sending us this necklace for us to try.

This beautiful Amber Jewelry comes in both necklaces and bracelets in sizes for both children and adults. While Amber can be highly effective for ailments ranging from arthritis pain to menstrual pain and headaches, I highly recommend it for anyone who has teething babies. Each bead is individually knotted on a strand of silk thread, so if the jewelry does break, the whole strand does not come unstrung and become a choking hazard. The silk thread is also meant to break under pressure so as not to create a strangling hazard to babies and children. 

Another product that Rachel carries, and one that I had not heard of before visiting her website, is Hazelwood Jewelry. 

THE BENEFITS OF HAZELWOOD:
"Hazelwood is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people -- It has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body's acidity.
It relieves or prevents ailments such as ulcers, acid reflux, heartburn, skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, acne), arthritis, constipation, migraines, sensitive & bleeding gums, helps reduce dental cavities, and more. These necklaces are a great remedy for heartburn and nausea during pregnancy!
Hazelwood necklaces are made from the branches of a hazelwood tree alternated with glass and/or gemstone beads for ornamentation. They are handmade - from the gathering of the wood to the stringing of the beads."
You can read more details, as well as other testimonials, on Inspired By Finn's Informational page about Hazelwood.
