Inspired by Finn Review & Giveaway

Inspired by Finn sells Baltic amber and hazelwood jewelry. We discovered them a few months ago when we were in search of a nature teething remedy for Jonathan (then 19 months old). We entered several teething necklace giveaways to no avail so we were thrilled when Inspired by Finn agreed to let us review one of their Baltic amber teething necklaces.

The first time I heard "teething necklace" I thought people were crazy. Why would anyone give their baby or toddler beaded jewelry to chew on! However, once I looked into it a little further I realized that no, people weren't allowing their children to chew on the jewelry. Instead the Baltic amber is worn on the skin so the skin’s warmth can releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin. This Succinic acid is a mild pain reliever and when worn near the area of discomfort can have pain relieving affects.

Read more about the benefits of Baltic amber and check out the available shapes and colors.

We decided that we wanted the highest level of succinic acid, so we chose a necklace that is light colored and opaque.

Jonathan's new necklace arrived in a cute gift box.


All of Inspired by Finn's jewelry is lead-free and phthalates-free and it meets all US legislative testing (CPSIA) requirements for children's jewelry. The necklace has an easy to use, secure closure. Each bead is individually knotted and the necklace will break if pulled (we didn't try this), which is good for safety's sake. Even so, we personally, did not put the necklace on Jonathan's neck for bedtime. Instead we wrapped it twice around his ankle and placed a sock on that foot to keep the beads warm and touching his skin, and to keep him from taking it off.

After I took this photos, I tucked the necklace under his shirt, so it was in contact with his skin.


The necklace is absolutely beautiful, and I definitely want one for myself only because it is so pretty!

I can't say that it definitely eased his teething pain, because it's his pain not mine and he is not yet very verbal. However, when he started wearing the necklace he did begin falling asleep easier and woke up less frequently throughout the night.

Jonathan's teething pain seems to be mostly over now as we're just waiting on one more stubborn little tooth. But, we'll definitely be holding onto this necklace for Eliya who is just beginning the teething process.

I had no idea how many problems could potentially benefit from amber! I had only heard about them for teething but could try it for my husband's carpal tunnel and my migraines. Cool. I like the one with the pendant because it seems like a big piece touching their skin would benefit even more.
