Amber is a fossilised resin and not a stone, so warms against the skin. A natural analgesic, it releases its therapeutic, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties, safely and naturally. Wearing amber against the skin is a traditional European remedy for soothing teething babies and is sold in European pharmacies.
Are they safe?
The healing oils released from the amber are natural and completely non-toxic. In terms of construction, there is a double knot between each bead so in the unlikely event of a necklace breaking only on bead will come loose. Even if this one small bead is swallowed it is completely non-toxic. In fact ancient Greeks and Egyptians used to grind amber and it was taken orally in medicinal remedies. Also the necklaces have a traditional screw clasp which is safer and cannot be accidentally undone by the baby.
Should the baby chew on the necklace?
The necklace are designed to be worn and babies should not be chewing on the necklace. It is however non toxic and will not harm baby if they do place it in their mouths.
