When it comes to little kids and emerging teeth, it is good to have a backup strategy for the imperative pain associated with teething. For natural teething relief you can rely on Baltic amber teething necklaces, a fossilized resin (not a gem or mineral) that dates back to roughly 30-50 million years ago. You cannot assume just one color when choosing amber, it comes in more than 300 natural shades from honey to dark cherry, though more important is how it works.
