We get tons of questions about our baltic amber, so we sat down with some of our most frequently asked questions to make sure you all have all the info you need! Have more questions? Feel free to reach out via email, PM, or in our VIP group! We're happy to help!
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 and so much more!
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 other gemstones that have additional benefits. You can find more about those here: https://simplygingerbaltic.com/blogs/news/simply-ginger-gemstone-information
Q: How do I know what size I should order?
A: We recommend the 11 in for babies up to 10/11 months. 6+ months to 6 years get the best fit from a 12.5 inch and 6-12 years, 14.2 inch. Adult sizes start at 17.7 inches. Necklaces should fit more losely than a choker, but not be long enough that the child can get it in their mouth.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Teething necklaces are designed to breakaway under pressure to avoid strangulation! Ours have a twist clasp instead of the typical pop clasps, but they do still breakaway. They are also knotted in between each bead, so that if a necklace breaks you don’t lose all the beads and have a choking hazard. Having the correct size necklace also ensures safety! We do not recommend allowing babies and small children to sleep in the necklaces and always recommend they be supervised while wearing the necklaces. We take as many precautions as possible, but anytime there is something around the neck we recommend parents be cautious and vigilant!
Q: How long is one necklace good for?
A: Amber can last a lifetime if taken care of correctly!
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 become brittle over time, so we suggest taking the necklace off to bathe and swim.
