Amber necklaces and bracelets for babies and toddlers are very popular. Why is this? The origin of this goes back to the Middle Ages when they discovered that amber had a pain-relieving effect. As a result, it quickly became a popular medicine for all kinds of ailments. When Robbert Koch discovered in 1886 that succinic acid has a positive effect on the body it quickly became popular to wear Baltic amber on the body. This also applies to babies and children who are teething. The baby teething necklaces and bracelets can be worn to relieve pain in a natural way.
Theories on how amber teething necklaces work
Why amber and the wearing of necklaces or bracelets has this soothing effect on babies and children has two theories. The most popular theory is that when you are wearing the necklace or bracelet, a minimal amount of succinic acid is released and absorbed by the skin. From here it can reach the bloodstream and provide a natural pain relief. A less known theory assumes that the amber generates static energy which is passed on to the body. Here it converts into your own natural energy flow where it can help with pain relief. But the best way to find out is to try it yourself. Or ask a mother who is already using them on their toddlers.
