Amber Teething Necklaces and Anklets 

      You may have come to visit our website because a happy Amber SOS customer recommended that you try an Amber Teething Necklace or Anklet for your own troubled teether.  Now that you are here, you are confused by the label 'Not suitable for under 3 years'.  We hope the following information will clarify things for you.

      Amber has been used as an aid for natural well-being since Roman times.  The use of Amber Teething Necklaces to aid teething originates in the Baltic countries where amber comes from.  They are a traditional well known remedy there and throughout Europe, where amber is recommended to ease for many chronic pain conditions.

      But recently, there has been a change recently in how Amber Teething Necklaces and Bracelets/Anklets are to be labeled.  In 2011, new EU Toy Safety Directive 2009/48/EC was introduced to strengthen and update the rules on toy safety throughout Europe.   Amber Teething Necklaces and Anklets must now be considered in the light of this legislation. Before this, Amber for teething has been sold  with the label "Use under Supervision".  When considered under this legislation, a certain test is applied to judge their suitability for use under 3 years.  This test involves 3 elements; Size, Tension (strength of cord) and Impact.  Amber Teething Necklaces and Bracelets will not pass these tests, primarily because of their small size.  The contention is that a child under 3 could put the necklace or bracelet/anklet in their mouth, in which case and it would not be safe.  Or that the Necklace or Bracelet could break in certain conditions and so not fit safely.  So they are now labeled as "Not Suitable for under 3 years".  The product as a whole is under consideration.  There is no question about the amber itself.

      So before you consider an Amber Teething Necklace or Anklet/Bracelet for your child, please consider this element of safety.  We hope we answer some further questions you may have below.  Please feel free to contact us in you would like further clarification on any of the above points.  We are happy to answer any queries you may have.  Please read our Amber and Safety Page for some further information.  We answer some Frequently Asked Questions below:

Frequently Asked Questions regarding Amber

Q.  What do you do with it?

A.  It should be worn against the skin.  The warmth of the skin against the amber will allow the body to benefit from the healing element in amber - succinite.  Best results will be had if it is worn 24/7.    

Q. What will it do?
A.  It can reduce inflammation, clear red cheeks, ease pain, stimulate the thyroid to reduce drooling (so skin and nappy conditions can clear up).  Irritability can be reduced and a better nights sleeps can be had.  You will notice a calmer, happier disposition.

Q. Do you chew it?
A. No, it is not to be chewed.  In fact the amber might break if it is put in the mouth so the wearer should be supervised.  It is best tucked under clothing. 

Q.  Can you pull it?
A. Amber is very light - so light it can float on salted water.  It is also warm, not like a stone.  Because it is so light and warm and has rounded edges, it is very comfortable to wear so is seldom noticed after a few hours.  If pulled hare, it will break.

Q..  What will happen if it gets pulled?
A.   Our products are threaded on cotton.  If they are pulled hard or caught in something, they will break.  The Pop Clasp Necklaces will come apart at a lesser force then the Screw Clasp style.  If the cotton threading breaks, only one bead will come loose because they are knotted between each bead.

Q.  What happens if a bead is swallowed?
A.  The amber beads we sell are small enough to simply pass through the system without harming baby.  They are non-toxic. 

Q.  How old should you be to start wearing it?
A.   Amber itself will not cause any problems from any age but recent changes mean that because of the make up of the products of small parts, they are not recommended for those under 3 years.  Previously, they were sold under a use under supervision label. 

Q.  Should I take it off while sleeping?
A.  Yes, but to maintain healing you can put amber around the wrist or ankle for sleep time, wound around twice.  Amber works best when in constant contact with the skin and won't help if continually removed. 

Q.  Are they safe?
A.  We recommend that amber is used under supervision   A necklace can be used on the wrist or ankle, wound around twice and tucked under clothing, especially at sleep time.  Please see our Safety page for more information.   A parent is the best judge of the suitability of this product for their child.   
 

Q. Should you see an effect immediately?
A. We have heard back from some parents that they noticed a difference within a half hour.  But it can take up to a week for others.  Also, the older they are, the longer it can take to see a difference.  Please read our Happy Customers Page

Q.  How long will the amber work?
A. The amber will be good for roughly 2 years, depending on how it is cared for.   It can become brittle and faded over time, especially if exposed to soaps and creams, perfumes, chlorine or heat.
 

Q. How long will it last?

A.  We give a guarantee of 6 months with our Amber Teething Necklace and Bracelets against a breakage.  As a rough guide, they can last 2-3 years, depending on use.  We suggest you check your items on arrival (in case of damage in transit).  If not happy, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We suggest you check your amber periodically thereafter to satisfy yourself with the safety of your item.

Q. How should I clean it?
A. Just dip in warm water and rub dry with a soft cloth.  Plain water will not harm the amber but washing agents/detergents may so take it off while in the bath or swimming pool.  Do not let your amber come in contact with hot water or a hot radiator.

Q.  Why are they different colours and shapes? 
A. Amber comes from nature in a range of colours from transparent through the colour spectrum to black.  If it is genuine Baltic amber, it contains 8% succinite and all colours works in the same way.  It comes naturally in different sizes and shapes.  These are graded and categorised to make different products.  You can choose which you think will look best. The choice is purely cosmetic.  Because amber is natural, every product is unique and different. Buy Now

Q.  How do I know if it is genuine Amber?
A. We here at www.ambersos.com buy only from reputable suppliers directly from the Baltic area. We travel ourselves to verify the operations of our suppliers.  Since 2010 we have built relationships with many artisan jewelers who have been traders in amber for many generations.  They are members of the International Amber Association.  It is not in our interest to sell anything other than genuine Baltic Amber because amber from any other area will not give the same benefit.  Our business is built on the recommendations of happy customers so we want you to be happy. 

Q.  Can adults use amber for healing?
A.  Amber can be helpful to adults for many complaints such as headaches, rheumatism, insomnia, thyroid problems, throat problems, ear problems.  At Amber SOS, we also stock Amber Bracelets and Necklaces for adults.
