Stress/Tension Relief: Warm Buddy

eye pillowI suffer easily from headaches and neck tension, and was always on the lookout for natural products that could help ease the discomfort.

When I first experienced the Warm Buddy Aromatherapy Sleep Mask, I immediately felt soothed and comforted by the softness first.  The best part though is that this eye mask offers aromatherapy and acupressure (contains flax seeds, lavender, peppermint, chamomile, and essential oil of rose geranium), plus you can microwave or freeze depending on your personal preference or required need at the time.  Great just for relaxation and sleeping too.  The adjustable strap helps to secure and apply the perfect tension.  Also available is the eye pillow, same benefits but no strap.relax

For neck tension from stress, the Warm Buddy neck wrap will be your new best friend! Also available at Generation Green is the Warming Pillow that is great for aches and pains, and  filled with their signature anti-stress aromatherapy blend.

Amber, Not Just For Babies!

amber1If you have heard of Baltic Amber or Healing Amber, you more than likely associate it with babies and relief for teething pain, but Baltic Amber is so much more than that!

Baltic Amber is fossilized tree resin that has been used for centuries as a natural homeopathic pain reliever, and for boosting immunity.

I have had so many testimonials from parents who have found relief for teething pain and drooling, as well as colic and general fussiness with infants.  I also can personally testify to the benefits as an adult wearing Baltic Amber for chronic neck pain and migraines.  Other adults as well find relief  for pain and inflammation from issues such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, aching muscles and joints, stress relief and even hormone balancing!mom and baby amber

The warmth from the skin releases the active ingredient in the Baltic Amber, succinic acid, which is then absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientific research has proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body for healing.

Baltic Amber is lightweight and very comfortable to wear, in fact I never remove mine so that I constantly am able to receive the absorption of succinic acid.  It is fine even to shower or swim with it on.

The string in each of the amber necklaces and bracelets/anklets are double knotted by hand in between each and every bead, so should the necklace break, the rest of the beads will not scatter. The jewelry fastens with a screw clasp that opens and closes easily for adults. The amber beads never lose their effectiveness or need to be charged in sunlight to activate.  Colour, unpolished vs polished make no difference in the effectiveness either.

When using for babies and teething pain relief, the jewelry is meant to be worn not chewed!  For safety reasons consider double wrapping necklaces around your infant’s ankle when putting to bed, in order to continue to receive the benefits of amber while sleeping.

Authentic vs. Imitation Amber 
Test it for yourself!  Real Amber is buoyant in salt water.  To do this test, mix 1 part salt with 2 parts water, and dissolve the salt completely.  Drop your piece into the mixture.  Plastic and copal will sink, while amber floats.
