Amber Necklaces:

Natural healing for teething!

Amber necklaces help to relieve pain, drooling, inflammation and irritability of the mouth and gums. The amber in the necklace contains succinic acid which is absorbed through the skin to alleviate teething symptoms. Body heat will help release the succinic acid, so the necklace must have contact with the skin and must be polished often to keep clean and work.  We have Amber Necklaces for sale in the office, if you need more information, contact us or come check out our selection!
