Inspired by Finn Giveaway

After my sinus surgery I was told I would have swelling and possible headaches for the next month. I wasn't too happy about that and the need to take medicine every day, so I started to do some research. I came across a site that promoted Baltic Amber and I knew Franklin Goose carried a brand called Inspired By Finn. So I contacted them to do a review and I am so glad that I did!
Baltic Amber is a natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory agent. When amber is worn on the skin, the warmth of the skin releases trace amounts of healing oils. These oils contain succinic acid which is what acts as the pain reliever. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state.

A week after I was wearing my Inspired By Finn necklace the swelling and pain were gone. And no head aches! Granted, it had been 2 weeks after surgery. But still, it did the trick. I was told I'd have 2 more weeks of pain, so I know it worked.
I also got Ella a necklace because baltic amber is known to strengthen your immune system, restore energy, maintain wellness, and break the cycle of inflammation. Though, it doesn't help with MRSA. ;)Many parents use the amber necklaces or bracelets for teething jewelry. I have a few friends that swear by it. Inspired By Finn has Baltic amber necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and earrings for both children and adults. They also have single strands that can be used for back pain.

Not only does Inspired By Finn jewelry help your body but they are stylish too! We only take ours off when we get into the shower. The necklaces are light weight, so you can't tell that you are even wearing them. They also have a screw clasp or magnetic clasp if you are worried about your little one wearing a necklace. You can choose different lengths, though I like ours a little more snug. I have made one of the necklaces a bracelet. And Ella now has 2 bracelets. I want to order another one because it has really helped my carpal tunnel.

  42. I need/want the baltic amber teething necklace to help relieve teething pain my daughter may have. We had one in the past, but it broke and it did wonders for any teething pain. I also have one for my son to help with teething pain. My daughter also gets headaches, so I am hoping the baltic amber will help relieve the pain associated with those.

  84. If I won, I would like a nonelastic adult anklet with a screw clasp that is 7 1/2" or more, and made with the light amber /butter oval beads, or an adjustable knee strand. Either one would be for my friend who has arthritis and bone spurs in her knees and feet. I like Inspired by Finn on Facebook and have signed up for their e-mail updates.
