Baltic Amber and Our Health

Amber is beneficial for adults, too!  The warmth from the skin releases the active ingredient in the Baltic Amber, succinic acid, a resin, which is absorbed into the bloodstream. Recent scientific research has proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body by helping to improve immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream.

History of Amber's Healing Benefits

We know amber is the fossilized resin from prehistoric trees, dating as far back as 50 million years ago. In nature, the resin would have been used by the tree, itself, as a natural antibiotic or preservation from infection or injury. Worn for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief, amber was used to promote fast healing and to boost the body's own immune system.  Amber has been at the center of many scientific studies which clearly indicate that its therapeutic properties are very significant.

Currently, there are two different thoughts as to why wearing amber on the skin can have soothing and calming effects on both adults and teething children. One thought suggests that when amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases miniscule amounts of healing oils from amber which are then absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. The other theory is based on scientific findings, which have shown that amber is electromagnetically alive and produces significant amounts of organic, purely natural energy.

Baltic amber contains anywhere from 3-8% of succinic acid, a scientifically examined medical substance used in contemporary medicine. The highest content of the acid is found in the amber cortex, the external layer of the stone. Nobel-prize winner Robert Koch (1886), the pioneer of modern bacteriology, proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. In the 1930's and 40's, European biochemists discovered that succinic acid is an amino acid created naturally in every cell of the body capable of aerobic respiration, participating in the citric acid, or Krebs cycle. This is how carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are metabolized into energy.

Wearing amber may also protect us against the negative influences of electrical equipment like computers, televisions, mobile phones and microwave ovens. An even more amazing fact about amber is the chemical properties of the resin, when formed, act as a natural embalming agent with both drying and anti-microbial properties. Ancient Egyptians actually used pine resin as an embalming agent, and doctors in the War, lacking anything else, would sometimes slap tree resin on a wound as a disinfectant and saved lives that way.

The amber solution is not new to mothers and others who look for natural healing. Amber products are sold in local pharmacies in many European countries including Switzerland, Germany, and Austria, where amber has been respected for its medicinal qualities for centuries.

Amber Safety for Babies

Every Baltic amber jewelry is made of natural Baltic amber, hand-crafted by Lithuanian amber artisans with generations of experience who carefully polish and softly round the Baltic amber beads so that they lay comfortably against the skin. This allows maximum skin contact and gives added comfort.  The string in each of our amber necklaces and bracelets/anklets are knotted by hand in between each and every bead, so should the necklace break (which it should, when necessary), the rest of the beads will not scatter. The jewelry fastens with a screw clasp that opens and closes easily for adults.  Amber teething jewelry items are made to wear, but not to chew! Because babies are so small and move around while sleeping, teething necklaces should be removed when child is sleeping or unattended.  As a safe alternative, a baby may wear a necklace--double wrapped--around a wrist or ankle to continue receiving the benefits of amber at night.

Authentic vs. Imitation Amber

Be careful!  There are many groups on the internet selling fake amber.  All amber at Amber by Amanda is genuine Baltic Sea amber. Our amber has been obtained from reputable sources on the Baltic Sea shores in Lithuania and has been carefully examined using FT-IR spectra tests to ensure we only have authentic Baltic Sea amber. Amber by Amanda guarantees we use only natural raw amber, properly processed to obtain the highest quality final product, free of artificial pressed amber.

We ONLY sell genuine Baltic, Authentic, and Natural Baltic Amber.  You will not find any artificial, plastic, or synthetic amber with Amber by Amanda.

Test it for yourself.  Amber is buoyant in salt water.  That's why it is easy for locals on the Baltic Coast to find it washed up on beaches, especially after storm events. The amber gets stirred up from a layer known as blue earth, which is beneath layers of silt and clay on the ocean floor. 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.
