Baltic amber has been around since ancient times. It’s a European staple for men and women for centuries, not only as a matter
of culture but also because of the healing powers it possesses. Over the years, amber necklaces and anklets have become a popular choice for soothing teething children, relieving pain and anxiety in adults and helping pregnant women de-stress.
Whether you simply want to feel closer to nature, make use of the healing properties, or want to give a unique, thoughtful, and practical gift, Baltic amber is the perfect solution. Let’s explore some common questions pertaining to amber and help you understand more.
What Is Amber?
Amber is not, contrary to popular belief, made from stone but rather from a tree resin that was excreted millions of years ago and has become fossilized. The type of amber used for healing comes from areas surrounding the Baltic Sea in Europe and is different because it contains higher levels of succinite, which is the element associated with healing.
Succinite is found both in nature and in our bodies. It is what’s known as an analgesic, which is any medicine that relieves pain without inducing unconsciousness. Nowadays, succinite is actually manufactured chemically by the pharmaceutical industry for an array of uses but is found in naturally high quantities in the amber teething anklet.
How To Use It?
Amber should be worn against the skin to utilize healing properties because heat from the body allows succinite to be absorbed. For best results, the jewelry should be worn permanently and fitted closest to any area of the body in pain or with an ailment. A person suffering from neck pain may choose to wear an anklet, while those with arthritis should try and wear a bracelet. It’s often advised that babies wear amber teething anklet so that they are out of reach and can’t be chewed or played with.
As mentioned, Baltic amber is known for its soothing qualities and stress relief, but also works as an anti-inflammatory and sleep aid. It is particularly beneficial for the pain of bone and joints, and many people suffering from chronic skin conditions, migraines and rheumatoid arthritis have reported significant relief.
How Long Will It Take And Last:
As with food supplements or medication, results vary from person to person, but many wearers notice changes within 24hours, while others see it a few days later. It’s advised that a new wearer commits to wearing Baltic amber for three to four weeks.
As with most things in life, age and lifestyle (like being exposed to toiletries, chlorine, and excessive heat) can lead to brittleness and fading, but careful care and maintenance prolongs the lifespan of Baltic amber to roughly two years. It’s best to remove it when bathing or swimming and is simple to clean, by dipping in plain, warm water and wiping with a soft cloth.
Being a natural product with so many potential benefits, it seems like an obvious choice for anyone to try Baltic amber. Just remember, we’re not medical professionals and the opinions mentioned are not intended as medical advice.
