On this page we will answer some of the most common questions regarding Amber Necklaces.
Why only Baltic Amber and not just any Amber?
Baltic amber comes from the Baltic sea. It is this amber that contains between 3-8%
of succinic acid. You can also get amber in other parts of the world, such as Mexico,
however this amber has less than 3% of succinic acid.
What is Amber?
Amber is fossilised tree resin produced approximately 45 million years ago. The tree
producing this resin would have used it as a natural antibiotic.
Is the necklace intended to be chewed and can my bub sleep in it?
No, it is not and your bub should always be supervised whilst wearing their necklace.
Some people also wrap it around their bubs ankle twice and cover it with clothing....as
long as it is in skin contact it will work.
When can my bub start wearing their necklace?
Once your bub has neck support you can start to put it on them. But keep in mind
that ACCC Safety Standards do not recommend them for children under 36 months.
Can you wear the necklace in water?
Yes you can, but it is not recommended as prolonged periods in water may weaken
What type of clasps are used for the necklaces?
Plastic screw clasps are used
