amber necklaces, part 2.

The kids' amber necklaces arrived! Inspired By Finn had a 50% off sale the other week so I bought two for the price of one, getting Maia a longer size and Kieran his very own! How cute is he in his necklace!?

I had a few friends ask some questions about the amber necklaces after my last post on them. One of them wanted to know if we keep them on all the time. The answer is: Yes, we do! With Maia, we kept it on through baths, never took it off once. This time around though, I learned you are not supposed to get it wet and try to keep lotions off it because it will mess with the natural oils of the necklace. So now we're taking it off at bathtime and putting it back on when skin's dry. This is no big deal since we do baths every other night.

That leads me to the next question - do we let them sleep in them? And again, yep, we do! I'm comfortable with this for a few reasons. Since my children are so chubby, it tucks under their fat rolls, so they can't grab it easily. If they did grab it, and happen to pull on it, each bead is individually knotted so if it broke, the beads would not scatter everywhere. Also, because we put it on them at a young age, it sort of becomes "part of them" - they're just used to it!

Do you have any more questions about amber necklaces? Let me know! P.S. Isn't Maia silly? That's how she's been taking pictures lately!

  2. Amber is amazing in its healing powers and not just for children. For centuries people have used amber for arthritis, respiratory infections including chronic asthma, as a stress reliever that interacts with the body's nervous system and much much more. Explore more research from the medical community and you will see some amazing results for natural Baltic amber. http://www.amberartisans.com/

  3. Oh! I didn't know I'm not supposed to get it wet. Good to know!!

    Okay, so I've had my baltic amber necklace for just under a week now. I ordered it because three months ago I was in a really bad accident (high speed), and got level 3 whiplash. Basically, I tore all the ligaments in my neck, but didn't get permanent injury.

    I've been caring for the injury well (regular chiropractic, massage, medication, stretches, muscle relaxants, a TENS unit, etc.), but I've still had a lot of stiffness and occasional pain. Since I've been wearing the necklace, though, the pain is gone and the stiffness has been greatly reduced. I can wake up and be stiff every where else in my spine and hips, but my neck will be moving just fine.

    And it's pretty, too!!
