Baltic amber teething necklace from Inspired by Finn, review and giveaway!


A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that Casey was a little irritable and cranky. At first I thought it was the 'terrible twos' making an appearance. Then when he started to object to teeth brushing, I started to wonder if maybe his second molars were coming in. So with a bit of help from Peter, I managed to get a look in his mouth, and sure enough.. swollen gums, with a tooth trying to break through!

Our Inspired by Finn Baltic amber teething necklace arrived just in time!

Inspired by Finn have lots of different styles, colors and sizes to choose from.. the round bead, chip or disc styles, shiny or opaque, and colors from light to dark.. even multi-color.

I chose the disc style, in a size 12.5 - 13 inches.



I was a little worried that the 12.5 - 13 inches would be too short, but it was the perfect length for Casey (22 months). It's not long enough for him to be putting it in his mouth (amber is soft, and could break if chewed on), but not too short that it would bother him by being too close to his neck either. Something to keep in mind when you're choosing your length! Another thing to keep in mind, is that the lighter the color of the amber, the more effective it will be.. I actually didn't realize that when picking one out for Casey.


WHAT IS BALTIC AMBER?
Baltic amber is a fossilized tree resin that has been used for centuries in Europe as a natural remedy and curative for many ailments. When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. For best results, it should be worn as often as possible, and as close to the site of discomfort as you can get it (wear a necklace for migraine or toothache, or a bracelet for arthritis of the hands).


THE BENEFITS OF WEARING BALTIC AMBER:
Pain relief.
Helps break a cycle of (chronic) inflammation.
Restores energy.
Maintains wellness.


I put it on him straight away when it arrived, and since then, I've only taken it off him for naps and at bedtime. He has been wearing it for two weeks now.. those teeth are almost through, and we haven't had to give out a single dose of Tylenol or Orajel. I just wish I'd heard of these necklaces sooner.. we were giving him dose after dose of Tylenol and/or Orajel to keep him comfortable when he was doing the majority of his teething.

How adorable does he look in it?!



Screw clasp.
Each bead is also individually tied!







Can't get it in his mouth!



We've had so many compliments on it since he started wearing it. Just tonight at the hair salon actually, a lady asked me where we got it and wanted to try one for her wrist!

Inspired by Finn don't just do teething necklaces.. they also have a selection of necklaces, bracelets, and anklets for adults. Great for migraine, joint pain, toothache, arthritis, etc.
