Amber is associated with sunlight and warmth. It is reputed to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing of wounds and thus it is the perfect soother for babies and children when teething.
Amber teething necklaces.
Amber is not actually a stone and therefore not cold to the touch. It is a fossilised tree resin from forests that were flooded by the sea millions of years ago.
It is a very old custom in various parts of Europe and the Far east for babies and children to wear amber.
Today we believe that the power within amber to soothe pain lies in the fact that it creates an electromagnetic field which enhances the human frame of mind.
These necklaces are not for chewing. They are generally worn at night when the child is of teething age.
