Baltic Amber

What is Baltic amber?

Baltic amber or succinite is a natural organic fossil gemstone formed out of pine trees (now extinct conifer) resin 45-54 million years ago. The hardening process of amber is known as polymerization, which fossilizes the resin over many centuries and makes it hard and sturdy. It was carried to the Baltic Sea region due to the geographic factors of the tectonic plates. Now it spreads mainly in the regions of Kaliningrad and Lithuania where it is extracted through mining and fishing, respectively. Unlike gold or silver Baltic amber can't be found anywhere else in the universe. Currious to know more? Learn more from my article "What is Baltic Amber".

What are the main benefits of Baltic amber for children?

Wearing Baltic amber close to the skin is a traditional European remedy for baby teething. A natural analgesic, amber will help a baby without resorting to drugs. Used for centuries in Europe, amber's natural anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties are perfect to soothe teething babies. Amber is a fossilized resin, which warms against the skin, releasing its therapeutic properties safely and naturally.

Why does Baltic amber have the power to heal?

Amber contains a property called succinic acid or amber acid - a natural analgesic and healing agent. Baltic amber is the only type of amber that has a rich concentration of this acid, i. e. 3-8 %. When the amber jewelry is warmed against the body, the succinic acid will be absorbed through the skin helping with pain relief.

Succinic acid is a powerful antioxidant, helps fight free radicals and alkalinize the blood. It can also stimulate the recovery of the neural system and strengthen the immune system, fighting inflammation, relieving some pain and reducing stress.

Has any research been done on Baltic amber?

In 1886, the Nobel Prize winner and pioneer of bacteriology Robert Koch, spent years studying succinic acid, which is the active ingredient in Baltic amber. He concluded that the acid had a very positive effect on humans, by strengthening our immune systems and serving as a healing aid. Succinic acid is nothing new in the pharmacological world. It is an ingredient found in many over the counter and prescription medications. Read more on the science of succinic acid from the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

How long has amber been used?

In the United States, it usual to think of the use of amber as alternative treatment, but it is used in normal medical practices in many parts of the world still today. Amber has stood the test of time and is noted in countless historical documents as a natural healer.

Amber Teething Necklace

How do Baltic amber teething necklaces work?

Baltic amber contains small, yet effective amount of the active ingredient called succinic acid. When babies wear the necklace, their body heat warms up the amber beads causing the release of the acid. This amber acid is then absorbed into their skin and the blood stream, allowing them to reap the benefits of the succinic acid’s anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties. The necklaces are more effective for teething pains compared to bracelets or anklets, because they are colser to the source of pain. They will help babies without resorting to drugs.

How long until amber teething necklace starts working?

The effects from the amber teething jewelry can appear within hours. However as each child is different it can take up to 1-2 weeks for some children to see a difference. In addition, the bigger the body and the extent of the problem, the longer it can take to see a difference. Just like taking a food supplement, you will not feel an immediate effect. Typically I ask my customers to commit to wearing it for 3 to 4 weeks.
