Several weeks ago, I got the opportunity to try out the Baltic Amber and Hazelwood necklaces from Spark of Amber. If you are not aware, Amber teething necklaces are very popular right now! Not only do they look adorable, but they serve a purpose as well.
Amber has been used for a very long time as a natural remedy for pain relief. When wearing the Amber against the skin, it heats up and the oils from the fossilized resin have a soothing and calming effect. Teething is not the only use for it though! It can also aid with inflammation (think ear infections or a sore throat).
Hazelwood is another element that has been around and used for a long time. Some uses it has been noted for are: eczema, heartburn, morning sickness, acid reflux, headaches, heartburn, and arthritis. I truly wish that I had known all of that when I was pregnant! I would have bought one of these necklaces, instead of suffering day in and day out.
Okay, so now you want to know if it really works. Well, I tried a necklace for me, and one for my daughter, Sophia. She is usually a ball of drool, but after wearing this necklace for a little while, it was definitely less, and she was a little less fussy. I do believe that it relieved some of her pain, but it didn’t take it all away. It made me feel good to know that I was doing something to help her, because I just can’t stand to see my children in pain when I know there is something I can do about it!
As for how the necklace affected me, I didn’t feel it “warm up”, but then again, I don’t think you are supposed to feel it. I am prone to headaches, migraines, and back pain (I’m a mess!). After a few days of wearing the necklace, my back pain had subsided. It does tend to come and go, but I do think that the necklace sped up the process and eased the inflammation. When you are having back pain, lifting even a little baby can be painful, so anything that helps is welcome, especially since I am not comfortable taking medications while I am nursing.
I actually love the necklaces so much, that I’ve put in an order for an anklet now! I only had to pay the $12.99 for the anklet – shipping at Spark of Amber is always free! The choices of jewelry are endless. There are necklaces, earrings, bracelets….you name it, and Spark of Amber has got it.
