Mums around the world love Amber for its ability to reduce pain and inflammation when their babies experience the discomfort of teething!
Amber has been used for centuries to cure ailments. People living near the Baltic Sea used to get the stones on the beach and use them for their magical powers. It has been crushed and used as a medicine in ancient times for medication and pain.
Amber is a natural resin, not a stone. It was fossilized and still contains original compounds. Amber contains succinic acid and this is the substance that is attributed to be responsible for the health benefits. Baltic amber, which is from the Baltic in Europe, has the highest concentration of succinic acid (3 to 8%) the compound that is said to be anti-inflammatory, fights free radicals and helps relieve stress and pain.
When amber is worn on the skin as the amber is warmed, it releases succinic acid, a healing oil, into the skin which enters the bloodstream. It stimulates the thyroid which in turn, reduces drooling ( for babies) and helps with pain. Amber is also said to have anti-inflammatory properties, which help reduce inflammation in the body. It also has been said that amber is electromagnetically active and charged with organic energy, producing negative ions to have a positive effect on the body.
The soothing effect of the amber and the release of succinic acid has been said to help many ailments; inflammation of throat, stimulation of thyroid, colic, teething, eczema and it can also improve heart, liver, kidney, intestines, arthritis and more.
