Baltic Amber Necklaces, The Beauty and Benefits

Baltic amber necklaces have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many people embracing them for their beauty and claimed health benefits. These necklaces are not just a fashion statement; they are also believed to offer several advantages for both adults and babies. We will delve into the benefits of Baltic amber necklaces and also address some safety concerns.

The Ancient Charm of Baltic Amber

Baltic amber is a fossilized tree resin that is found in the region surrounding the Baltic Sea. Its warm, golden hues and natural allure make it a sought-after material for jewelry. Baltic amber has been used for centuries for its believed healing properties and is considered as a powerful talisman by many.

Benefits of Wearing Baltic Amber Necklaces

Many individuals wear Baltic amber necklaces for their alleged therapeutic effects. Although scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited, testimonials and traditional beliefs have highlighted the following potential benefits:

  1. Pain Relief: One of the primary reasons people choose to wear Baltic amber necklaces is for their purported ability to alleviate pain. The amber contains a substance called succinic acid, which is believed to have natural analgesic properties. Claiming that wearing the necklace helps reduce headaches, joint pain, and teething discomfort in babies.
  2. Anti-Inflammatory: Baltic amber is thought to possess anti-inflammatory properties. When worn against the skin, body heat releases the succinic acid, which may be absorbed into the bloodstream. This might help to reduce inflammation in certain areas of the body, providing relief from conditions such as arthritis.
  3. Immune Support: The succinic acid found in Baltic amber is believed to have immune-boosting qualities. It is said to stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanisms, helping to strengthen the immune system and increase overall wellbeing.
  4. Calming Effects: Many parents use Baltic amber necklaces to ease teething discomfort in babies. The necklace, when worn against the skin, can allegedly release succinic acid, which is thought to have a soothing effect on the gums. This may help reduce fussiness and sleep disturbances caused by teething.

Safety Concerns and Precautions for Baltic Amber Necklaces

While Baltic amber necklaces have gained popularity, it is essential to address safety concerns associated with their use, particularly for babies and young children:

  1. Supervised Use Only: It is crucial to always supervise babies and young children when they are wearing Baltic amber necklaces. Never leave them unattended or allow them to sleep with the necklace on.
  2. Proper Fit: Choose a necklace that fits around the neck, not too short not too long, we like to see it sit on the collar bone under clothing. Do not over tighten the clasp as this will cause stress to the clasp. Each bead is individually knotted to prevent any potential choking hazards.
  3. Remove During Sleep: It is recommended to remove Baltic amber necklaces before sleeping or napping to minimize the risk of accidental strangulation.
  4. Regular Inspection: Regularly inspect the necklace for any signs of wear and tear. Check that the clasp is secure and make sure the beads are in good condition. Again, I can’t stress this enough. Do not over tighten the clasp as this will cause stress to the clasp
  5. Pulling, tugging, trying to mouth: We do not recommend baltic amber necklaces to ever be mouthed, Baltic amber is to be worn only. If your child is pulling, tugging or trying to put an amber necklace in their mouth, it is recommended to be removed and try again another time, when the child is ready.

Conclusion

Baltic amber necklaces are not only beautiful pieces of jewelry but also hold a special place in traditional beliefs and alternative medicine. While the benefits are largely anecdotal, many wearers attest to their potential advantages, particularly for pain relief and immune support. However, it is crucial to prioritize safety when using Baltic amber necklaces, especially for babies and young children. Always consult with a healthcare professional before using these necklaces for medicinal purposes and follow the recommended safety precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

Why buy your teething baby products from us, Zebra Babies?

Small Businesses matters!

Safe teething baby products – Small business is so important for the economy, when you buy from a small business you are helping not only a family but you are supporting a passionate dream. We make great quality and safe products, we are passionate about what we do. Our service is reliable and fast. Extensive range with great customer support only a phone call or message away.

I have learnt so much in the last 7 years from what mums want when shopping online, building websites, SEO, digital graphic design, social media and marketing and how to be a product photographer just to name a few. Being able to bring safe, handmade products to the market is so important, from our dummy clips, teethers and pram toys. This was such a big thing for me. I committed, got insured, purchased the standard, sent them off to get tested.

Absolute highlights are getting the emails with the testing reports saying passed, being one of the best feelings. It’s such a hard trot from design to safety certified. Zebra Babies turns 7 this year in September. With the pending birthday I wanted to share a bit about myself and the brand and why us.

Quality Products!

Learning about our product materials and what makes a good and not so good product when manufacturing is so important. Silicone products are a great example. You would think silicone is all the same. It’s simple, durable and looks similar across multiple brands. Our silicone bibs and tableware took over 18 months from first sample to get off the ground because we were never 100% happy with the samples our factories were sending us. From flimsy silicone scoop bibs that didn’t hold their shape left alone catch food or bowls that didn’t have the structure we wanted.

One of the most interesting sampling we did was for our silicone stackers. We worked with 2 factories, same external mould, colours, you would think side by side they are the same product. The silicone come out completely different and one was able to be squeezes and almost folded with no structure, this was a safety issue. We wanted to make sure our brand gave our customers the best silicone toys and tableware out there. Our silicone is high quality, direct manufactured and branded, that’s how much confidence we have in it. 

Passion for my brand and ethical stance.

Baltic Amber was something I personally used for myself and my middle child as well as youngest babe. I thought the product was interesting and if it did what i said, bonus. I was so surprised when I had such great results. I personally wear amber in my daily life for RSI. Our customers message and leave reviews absolutely swearing by it, warms my heart. The range is extensive and stocked in small businesses up and down the east coast from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Sunshine coast to South Australia. 

Customer Service! 

Mums want an experience when shopping online, from the flow and ease of a website to a beautiful social link they can spy. Above all of that, we want it now. Our next day turn around has our mums emailing regularly saying – “omg it’s here already” or – “I wasn’t expecting it so soon”. We love this! This is what online shopping is about. Beautifully packaged, wrapped and arrives quickly. YASS!

Little bit about me, Ash.

I’m a FIFO wife, mum with 3 awesome babes, Hubby has been FIFO since our oldest was 1(almost 12 years) . It’s life and we make it work. Zebra Babies has allowed me to be there for our kids, with a more flexible work schedule. Before Zebra Babies is spent 3 years as a hairdresser, I absolutely loved it.

I’m such a creative person at heart and love a great transformation. With a severe back injury ending in major spinal surgery I wasn’t going back. My back is thankfully great now. I really wanted to work, do my bit and have something to do that I felt the same about. Had an idea, I kinda slowly walked with it. I remember my first order, opening that first silicone bead order. Sorting the silicone beads and making my first batch of silicone necklace designs thinking I really hope someone will buy them. From there expanding the product range and it being what it is today. I’m so proud of where and what the brand stands for today.
