Inspired By Finn {Review & Giveaway}

Inspired By Finn{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, missbobloblaw!}

I'd have to go back and look in her baby book to be sure, but I think Big Sister E got her first tooth somewhere around five or six months of age. As well as the time that has passed, another reason why I don't clearly remember is because the event itself was... uneventful.

No crying, no fussing, pretty much no change in her laid back personality at all - I think we just happened to peek into her mouth and there was her first pearly white tooth peeking through her gums. Pretty much the ideal way for this milestone to occur, right?

Well, as with many things, when Little Sister B reached the teething stages... it wasn't nearly as easy. There have been many tears, cries of pain and a whole lot of her cramming her fingers into her mouth and looking at me sadly. Aside from things to chew on or frozen washcloths (which never helped her) or giving her medicine to help relieve the symptoms (which isn't really what I want to continually do), there didn't seem to be any other options.

At least not until I came across more and more people that love and swear by the Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces from Inspired By Finn.

Baltic AmberA natural and traditional European remedy for teething discomfort for hundreds of years, when Baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber that are then absorbed. Among other things, the oils will then help heal a long list of problems, from headaches to inflammation to low energy levels.

By handcrafting their necklaces (as well as bracelets, anklets and more) out of this fossilized tree resin, Inspired By Finn has found a way to bring authentic Baltic amber, and all of its benefits, to babies, children and adults. Even better, they're gorgeous!
Teething discomfortAs soon as I opened the box, I immediately couldn't decide if I liked the rich color of the Honey Round necklace or the mix of shades in the 4 Different Round necklace. The colors are just amazing in person!

As I examined each one closer, right away I appreciated the craftsmanship that went into making them both. Not only is the necklace cord knotted in between each bead (meaning that if it was somehow broken, the beads wouldn't all scatter as if they were just on a string), but the screw clasp is extremely durable and stays securely closed when twisted shut.

Of course as soon as I went to place a necklace on Little Sister B, Big Sister E was right there asking for one of her own. Even though she is no longer teething, I knew that there were so many testimonies about Baltic amber making a difference in the lives of people with all kinds of ailments, so the second strand went to her.

They were both very, very happy about this.

The results? To be honest, I'm not sure. I'm not a doctor (although even if I was, how could I prove what was attributed to the Baltic amber and what wasn't?) but I do know that the girls LOVE these necklaces. Whenever they are taken off (it is recommended to remove them for baths, swimming and sleeping), there is no chance of forgetting to put them back on due to the constant reminders.

I would have liked to try one of these myself to see if I could tell any difference in the way I feel, but neither Big Sister E nor Little Sister B has been at all willing to give up their necklace in the weeks that we have had them. So whether it is the attractiveness of the colors (we constantly receive compliments whenever we're out) or the healing properties, we have definitely been happy with our Inspired By Finn experience.

With so many people dedicated to the relief that they have found from Baltic amber, I don't see any reason not to try one of the many options that Inspired By Finn has available - they could be the answer to so many ailments and symptoms!

Prices are affordable to start with (the necklaces start at $20.95) but you can also save 20% off of your purchase by participating in Inspired By Finn's Facebook promotion... plus they run 40% off sales from time-to-time (also announced on Facebook), which would make for a real bargain on an item that could last for years to come!

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will get to see for themselves the beauty and benefits of Baltic amber and Inspired By Finn, because...

One lucky person will win a Baltic Amber Teething Necklace from Inspired By Finn!
