How to clean them: Just use hot water and cloth to wipe the beads if needed. Can they get wet? Yes, they can but we prefer to keep them chemical free as the chemicals may interfere with the effectiveness. This often means removing during bath and pool.
Necklaces are not for baby to chew on, the Amber & other stones releases microscopic amounts of oil, as it warms with the body's natural temperature, that is absorbed into the skin and bloodstream. Baltic Amber contains succinic acid (anti-fever, anti-inflammatory), the compound that gives Baltic Amber teething necklaces the therapeutic quality. **FOR CHILDREN UNDER 3*** Teething Necklaces should be removed during naps and when unsupervised.
Baltic amber is an organic substance, a “fossil resin” produced by pine trees which grew in Northern Europe. By having the baby wear the necklace everyday it helps reduce the common symptoms related to teething such as: red cheeks, fever, swollen gums, and diaper rash.
The amber is all natural from the earth. Each bit of tree resin is hardened into a bead to be placed onto the necklace. The beads are sorted by size and strung. But color, shape, texture can vary from necklace to necklace. It is more rare to find two that are exact.
