Amber has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever in people of all ages. Baltic Amber contains a resin called succinic acid, which acts as a natural pain reliever in the body.

Amber necklaces are not *specifically* for teething, they are for pain relief. Most parents find out about them when their children are teething and thus they have become popular for that reason. People of all ages use amber to relieve pain for a variety of ailments from migraines to arthritis and carpal tunnel. Amber can be found in necklaces, bracelets or anklets and comes in a variety of colors. The color of the bead has no effect on the pain relieving properties in the necklace, so you can choose your necklace based on what appeals to you personally!

Many people ask about the safety of an amber necklace. As with any product, an amber necklace should be worn under the direct supervision of an adult. Amber beads should not be put into the mouth, thus having an appropriately sized necklace is very important. It is absolutely best to purchase where you can bring your child to the store to try it on and make sure it is a good fit. If you are not able to bring your child to the store to try it on, then you can measure their neck ahead of time and have an associate help you at the store you are purchasing it at.

It is very easy to care for an amber necklace by just wiping it down with a clean, damp cloth. With proper care, amber jewelry should last for many years!
