Today they are simply beautiful. Baltic amber necklaces are ideal for both modern day boys and girls to wear.
Amber is not a crystal and it can not be classified as a stone. Amber is petrified pine tree sap that is between 40 and 50 million years old. Captured within the sap are frequently found small insects, flowers, seeds and other remnants of prehistoric nature. These preserved life forms make Amber an archeological find worth studying.
What is Succinic Acid?
Succinic Acid is another name for Amber Acid that has been used in Europe as a natural antibiotic and general curative for centuries.
Natural Baltic Amber is high in Succinic Acid content and contains as much as 8 percent by weight. Succinic Acid is also a natural constituent of plant and animal tissues
Recent scientific research suggests that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It can improve immunity and balance the bodies acids when absorbed into the bloodstream. It can stimulate the thyroid gland, which may help to reduce drooling and soothe red inflamed cheeks.
Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognised by Allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic.
This will help to relieve teething pain and calm a baby without resorting to drugs.
In countries like Austria, Switzerland and Germany, Amber teething necklaces are commonly sold in local pharmacies as a mainstream treatment for teething. These pharmacists and doctors have long known about the healing properties of Amber, which include, calmative, analgesic, expectorant and febrifuge (anti-fever) functions.
Another theory is based on scientific findings which have shown Amber to be electromagnetically alive and therefore charged with a significant amount of Organic Energy. It's special attribute is that it is electronegative. Wearing Amber produces negative ionisation on the skin's surface. This, in turn, has a positive effect on the human body. The negative ions may assist in the prevention of illness.
These health promoting effects apply to babies, toddlers, children and adults alike.
The soothing and calming effect of wearing Amber teething necklaces,which has been empirically observed, is based on a combination of all the factors listed above.
We are surrounded by all sorts of electrical devices such as radios, television sets, food processors, microwave ovens, hair-dryers, shavers, computers and mobile phones, which affect our own electromagnetic field. Modern research proves that we may protect ourselves by wearing amber necklaces or bracelets. When amber is warmed up it changes ionization, positively influencing our frame of mind and rebuilding the disturbed electrostatic field this enables us to again be full of energy and happy (the term “happy beads” is commonly used).
Ancient Egyptians actually used pine resin as an embalming agent, and in the Civil War, lacking anything else, would sometimes slap tree resin on a wound.
