Amber (or, technically, resinite) is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes includes animal and plant material as inclusions.
Baltic amber is a fossil resin produced by ancient pine trees, which grew in Northern Europe, around the Baltic sea as long as 300 million years ago. As the climate warmed the conifer trees began exuding large amounts of resin and as the millennia progressed, these exudations became stable.
Baltic amber is considered the finest and most therapeutic amber in the world. Amber is well known for its pain easing, rejuvenating and vitality boosting effects as well as its ability to help protect against illness. It is a well researched adaptogen and has long been referred to as an Elixir of Youth. Baltic Amber gems were not only valued for their unique beauty but also for their healing and protective qualities. Amber is treated as a medicinal substance, and many healing elixirs have been made with it down through the ages.
Baltic amber warms against the skin, releasing it’s therapeutic properties safely and naturally. Amber‘s electrostatic properties are used for healing. It is a natural ionizer and is able to produce negative ions which help to ease pain and stimulate the healing process. Baltic Amber is also known to provide protection from harmful radiation emitted from computers, cell phones, microwave ovens and electrical devices.
Amber is not actually a stone and therefore not cold to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear. The transparent pieces have a warm rich glow.
Amber necklaces are great for babies and toddlers to soothe the pain and discomfort of teething. Specifically designed with the safety of babies and toddlers in mind, they usually have amber clasps (non-allergic), and are knotted before and after every individual amber bead so that even in the unlikely event of the string being torn, not a single bead is lost and there is no risk of choking. Baby amber teething necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing. Amber exhibits pain relieving qualities when worn on the skin.

Baltic amber is a natural analgesic and possesses anti-inflammatory properties, so is often used to ease joint pain. It also acts as a natural antibiotic and has a long history of use in healing wounds.
Succinic acid – Baltic amber has high concentrations of a unique substance known as succinic acid. This powerful antioxidant helps eliminate free radicals and discourages disruptions of the cardiac rhythm. Succinic acid has been shown to stimulate neural system recovery and bolster the immune system, it helps restore strength and energy to the entire body and enhances brain function, thereby improving awareness, concentration, reflexes, and reducing stress. Succinic acid is commercially produced, widely used and approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.
