Commonly known as "teething jewelry," baltic amber has been a natural and traditional European remedy for teething discomfort for hundreds of years. These necklaces are handcrafted and are made of authentic Baltic amber, the most esteemed type of amber in the world. Released from the necklace when worn, succinic acid is the most beneficial component of the amber.
To care for your baltic amber, clean with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Avoid detergents and cleansers when possible as these substances over time will leave a residue on the amber that inhibits it's ability to release its healing properties into the skin. It is best to remove the jewelry at bath time, or when at the pool, or when applying lotions or sun screens.
