What is Baltic Amber?
Amber is a natural resin which oozed out of a tree and eventually fossilised between recent times and a few hundred million years ago. The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber, where it was produced by extinct coniferous trees. Amber is not a stone, therefore it is light and warm to touch.
How does the amber necklace work?
The warmth of the skin triggers the fossilised resin to release its natural oils. Wearing Baltic amber close to the skin is a traditional European remedy for baby teething. A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. Used for centuries in Europe, amber's natural anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties are perfect to soothe teething babies. Amber releases its therapeutic properties safely and naturally.

Succinic acid is also used in treatment of acid reflux and heartburn, which can affect babies during teething due to the excessive amount of saliva swallowed.
