-CLOSED- Inspired By Finn Giveaway & Discount Code!


Recently, I have been on the hunt for something to ease my sons teething pain. My poor little man has been teething for the last three months and this last month has really been the worst as his first tooth is starting to come in. I have bought multiple teethers at the store, tried natural teething drops, but nothing seems to ease the pain for him. I have come across a couple of posts where people have mentioned amber necklaces to aid in teething pain and the site, Inspired By Finn was frequently mentioned. So, I decided to look into it. I would do anything to ease my sons discomfort and something natural sounded a whole lot better than giving him baby medicine!
So, I checked out the Inspired By Finn website and there is a wealth of information there! Not only about Baltic Amber, but also about Hazelwood necklaces too. It turns out that Baltic Amber is actually a “a natural analgesic (pain reliever) and anti-inflammatory. When amber is worn on the skin, the warmth of the skin releases trace amounts of healing oils on the skin. Commonly known as "teething jewelry," baltic amber has been a natural and traditional European remedy for teething discomfort for hundreds of years.” It also turns out that the color of the amber that you choose is also important! The lighter the color, the better is at relieving pain. It is the Succinic acid in the Baltic Amber that is the pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory component. So, if you want to make sure you are getting the necklace that is the most effective for teething, then you would want to choose a lighter color that contains more succinic acid than other colors. The lightest colors contain up to three times more than the darkest color!

These are the youth necklaces that Inspired By Finn carries that contain the highest amounts of succinic acid:

Custard Chip
Turmeric & Cream Chip
Light Oval
Light Bean
Pumpkin Butter Oval
Mustard Bean
Butter Round
Milk & Butter Round
Pumpkin Butter Round
Butter Pendant
Light Mix

Inspired By Finn also carries Hazelwood necklaces and here is a little info about hazelwood: Hazelwood has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body's acidity. It is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people. It relieves or prevents ailments such as acid reflux, nausea, ulcers, and heartburn. It may be helpful with skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, acne), arthritis, constipation, migraines, bleeding gums, and more. In order to receive a therapeutic benefit the necklace should be worn as much as possible and it can even be worn in the bath or shower.
A side not on the nausea- I wish I had known about this when I was pregnant! …Maybe for baby #2 in the very distant future! Although, I still break out, I may have to consider adding one of these necklaces to my “beauty routine!”

So, all that being said, I just purchased the Pumpkin Butter in Oval for my son!*UPDATE* The necklace came in the mail yesterday and it is even cuter that I could have imagined! I put in on my son and he has been wearing it now for a day and a half. Although I don't think his teething pain has gone away, (and he certainly isn't drooling any less!) I do feel like he is a little bit happier and we don't have those moments in the day of frustrated pain as he grasps for anything to chew on. So far, I think it does seem to be helping a little, even if it is just to take the edge off. And then today (6/29), after wearing the necklace all morning, my son took a 2 hour nap!!! I mean, it might not have been the amber necklace that helped with this nap, but then again, he hasn't napped for 2 hours straight in a looong time. I'm just sayin'... So, here are some pictures of the necklace when I first got it and my son wearing it. (I am so happy that it turned out to be the perfect length for him!)
 The box the necklace came in and the card that came with it stating when and where it was made. Such a pretty color too!

I put a penny next to the necklace for size comparison of the beads.

I love how my son is looking at me like he's never seen a camera before!
