Why amber teething necklaces?
As any parent knows, when babies are teething, they can experience a lot of pain. Amber necklaces can help soothe teething babies. When wearing an amber necklace, the baby’s body-heat warms the amber, causing it to release a small amount of oil that contains succinic acid. Succinic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, has anti-inflammatory properties that dulls the pains of teething.
