Amber is well known for its positive effects on teething for babies and toddlers.
It has been used for centuries for teething and is renowned for it's healing and anti-inflammatory properties which is why it is said to be effective with the symptoms of teething such as red inflamed cheeks and gums.
In addition to reducing pain, drooling (for which amber is said to work by stimulating the thyroid glands) and irritability that is often associated with teething, amber beads have also been claimed to relieve eczema, speed up wound healing and stave off ear and throat inflammation amongst many other ailments.
Amber can also help with concentration and the body’s reflexes. It offers an energy boost and has positive effects on the nervous system and the heart. Amber is used as a great alternative to synthetic pain relief medications, reducing exposure to the ingredients contained in teething gels.
We would recommend using either our bead stringing thread, white synthetic thread or natural silk thread and securing it with a sterling silver magnetic clasp or screw fastener. By knotting in between each bead it will make it more secure.
