Q: What is Baltic Amber known to help with?
A: Through Out History, Baltic amber has been used to alleviate many types of pain -- from teething ( dental in general ) pain, arthritic joint pain to swelling ( think broken bones, etc ), and even aids in a reduction of inflammation in the body. Baltic Amber also is known to aid in immune support! Below is a list of things Baltic Amber is known to help with:
- Colic +Teething Pain + Gum Inflammation + Drooling
- Anxiety + Stress
- Body Cleansing
- Pain In General
- Can Have a Calming Effect.
- Heart Health
- Aids In Quicker Injury Healing
- Headaches + More!
...So you can see how wearing Baltic Amber by itself can be beneficial to the person wearing it.
Q: What does Baltic Amber do/how does it work?
A: The baltic amber stones release succinic acid when they are heated up. Our body heat is enough to release the acid, and then its absorbed thru our skin! Succinic acid helps to alleviate inflammation and reduce pain, making it a great option for teething pain, drooling, swollen gums, restlessness, calming, and so much more!
Q: If I am wanting to use the baltic amber necklaces for teething, does it matter which one I get?
A: No, when it comes to teething, all of our necklaces will do the job. The color/stone combos are simply a preference so go ahead and choose the one you like the most. We do have a list of the benefits the different stones are known to provide but even without them baltic amber is great for dental pain.
Q: Is your baltic amber authentic?
A: Yes! All of our baltic amber is certified authentic and comes straight from Lithuania where it naturally occurs. We work with a small family owned + ran company and have since 2015.
Q: Are your necklaces cadmium free?
A: YES! We have had our clasps third party tested and they are free from heavy metals ( lead + cadmium free ).
Q: What is the difference in the different colors and types of stones?
A: Any of our necklaces are great for teething and other inflammation based ailments, like arthritis, however many have gemstones that can add additional benefits. You can find more about those here:

- Up to 10/11 months - 11 inch.
- 6 months to about 3/4 - ( depending on the size up to 5 years ) - 12.5 inch.
- 4 years up to like 7/8 years would be the 14.2 inch.

- Adult sizes start at 17.7 inches.
Bracelets are 5.5inch, 6.3 inch, and 7inches. Measure to be sure of the size you want to purchase.
Necklaces should fit more loosely than a choker, but not be long enough that the child can get it in their mouth.
** Baltic Amber Necklaces Are Meant To Be Worn Not Chewed On
** Remove To Sleep.
** Remove For Bathing and Swimming.
Q: How long is one necklace good for?
A: Amber can last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
Q: How should I care for our necklace?
A: The necklaces should be cleaned by just wiping off with water. Chemicals can cause the stones to erode and necklace materials to become brittle over time, so we suggest taking the necklace off to bath and swim.
