Inspired by Finn Baltic Amber Necklace Review & Giveaway

First a little history lesson:  Baltic Amber is fossilized tree resin which has been revered since about 9500 BC for its beauty and healing properties.  Amber was a traditional remedy for teething in Europe as recently as the 1900's, where it was believed to have had analgesic and calming properties.   More recently, a new generation of moms has discovered amber.  Amber teething necklaces are enjoying a comeback, and just about anywhere you go, you're bound to see someone (big or small) wearing amber.
Teething necklace.
Baltic Amber for back pain.

Inspired by Finn asked me to review one of their necklaces.  It's really a thing of beauty, and I put it on as soon as I got it.  I was kind of expecting some magical thunderclap that would suddenly heal all of my various ailments, but, of course that is just silly.  After a couple of days, though, when I went to put 
it back on after a shower (you shouldn't bathe in your amber), it was missing. After searching for a while, I gave up and went to bed.  I woke up the next morning with a very unpleasant surprise: a migraine!
Now I do suffer from migraines, but I never wake up with them.  And this was a bad one.  I took ibuprofen, had coffee (that's my usual remedy) and went about my morning, getting ready for work.  As I was feeding the cats,
I laughed out loud.  The necklace was curled up next to the cats' dish!  One of my kitties tried to steal it!(Or was it sabotage?)  I put it back on and before long, my headache was gone.  I know - I was probably
the meds and caffeine, but still.  What's even more awesome is I haven't had a migraine since.  And I'm not entirely sure, but I think it has helped with some chronic shoulder pain I've been having.
