Any new and confident parent can be reduced to a blubbering mess when their baby starts teething. Any normally playful and happy baby can be transformed into a crying, sleepless and irritable little being. It can be very distressing to see your child in pain.

It can be an overwhelming time for both mother and child, but thankfully there is a natural homeopathic remedy at hand that has been used for thousands of years, and it's called Baltic amber. One of the most famous advocates of the benefits of this natural remedy is Hippocrates, and in his works he detailed many medicinal properties and methods of the application of Baltic amber that were later used by scientists until the Middle Ages.

Amber is a natural fossilized tree resin, but what makes it so special? Baltic amber contains an active ingredient called succinite acid. This is a powerful anti oxidant that helps to combat toxic free radicals. Succinic acid has also been shown to stimulate the neural system and to boost the immune system. Amber is a natural analgesic and helps to reduce inflammation especially when worn around the neck area.

I am a firm believer in the health benefits of amber, having used a teething necklace on my youngest child. Like his siblings, he also suffered horribly during teething but his symptoms were greatly alleviated after using the necklace.

Most amber teething necklaces are carefully hand knotted between each bead, to prevent them falling off. It is also to be noted that to limit the worry of a choking hazard, the beads are to only be worn under adult supervision and not to be left on when the child is sleeping. Amber looks exquisite and aside from the known benefits is visually appealing. It also comes in a variety of hues including yellow, various shades of brown and even near black.
