My Very First Review and Giveaway!!!!!

I am thrilled that my first giveaway is something that I have had the opportunity to use with my daughters;   Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces from Inspired By Finn.  I discovered amber teething necklaces from the phenomenal community over at The Babywearer (I get a lot of wonderful info there), as I was looking for a natural painkiller for teething.  Inspired by Finn came very highly recommended, so I ordered.  It was difficult to order just one because they come in different styles and colors- all beautiful!  I put the teething necklaces on my daughters at the first sign of their first tooth popping through and the amber worked better than any analgesic that I have ever used.  An amazing product, to say the least.

From the website:
 How can baltic amber help us? 
Pain Relief -
Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc. 
Strengthens the body's immune system - 
In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system. 
 Restoring Energy – 
The human body naturally produces succinic acid. The salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state. 

Inspired by Finn is a company local to me, with stellar customer service and a serious selection of amber and other pain alleviating products. Inspired by Finn also carries Hazelwood, adult amber jewelry, Babylegs and other foot and leg warming products!

What interest me the most is that It relieves or prevents ailments such as ulcers, acid reflux, heartburn, skin problems (psoriasis, eczema, acne), arthritis, constipation, migraines, sensitive & bleeding gums, helps reduce dental cavities.

Amber baltic can help us in so many ways [where have I been!?] It's a pain reliever, strengthens the immune system, restores energy, and breaks the cycle of inflammation among other things. Very nice!

I am very impressed it helps reduce cavities. For some reason, that's something I really worry about, and anything to help prevent them is great with me!

Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin-jenprincess88 at aol dot com

I didn't know that it is actually the warmth of the body that releases the "medicine" from Amber....that is very interesting and may be quite useful!

I learned that baltic amber can help break a cycle of (chronic) inflammation. Very interesting. I'd like to try this for my little one.

I learned Hazelwood is an ancient remedy first used by aboriginal people -- It has the medicinal property of neutralizing the body's acidity.

Wow I'm actually really intrigued now. I will learn more.

Found you on Money Saving Mom's Mr. Linky.

I had heard of the teething & anti-inflammatory benefits of Baltic amber, but the digestive benefits of hazelwood were new to me. I have 4 children and had horrible heartburn with all 4 pregnancies. I would have tried anything! If I have another baby, I'll definitely get a hazelwood necklace. I'd love to win an amber teething necklace for my 13 month old daughter. Thanks for the chance to win.
