Natural Bling for Baby!

When I was a baby, I wore a gold chain with a pendant around my neck and probably a bracelet, too. I'm sure they were very beautiful but didn't have much to offer besides being pretty.

I've been learning a lot about natural remedies and two that have really struck me are Baltic Amber and Hazelwood! They are typically worn as necklaces and offer relief from many different ailments. We've decided LBG should be decked out with some awesome natural jewelry instead of jump straight to modern medicine.

Baltic Amber is really awesome from what I've read. It is fossilized tree resin which has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever. When the amber beads are warmed they release small amounts of their natural oils which are absorbed by the skin. Worn as a necklace, they can help relieve teething pain in small children! Sounds like an awesome concept to me. If I can offer LBG some relief from teething pain with out pumping him with medications, I'm all for it!

While reading about Baltic Amber, I also learned about Hazelwood. It's an Aboriginal remedy that helps neutralize our bodies acidity. It is said to help with acid reflux, ulcers, and even some skin problems!

We will be purchasing a hazelwood necklace in the next few days for LBG. He has some reflux issues that bother him. We've avoided modern medicine so far and would like to keep it that way. Hopefully, the necklace will aid us in our quest! He also has quite a bit of eczema so I'm hoping it will help on that front as well.

So now that I've filled you with some new knowledge, here is how you get these awesome pieces of jewelry: Inspired by Finn.
