Baltic Amber + Gemstones
About Baltic Amber
"All amber is fossilized tree resin. Baltic amber in particular (mined from near the Baltic Sea) additionally contains a substance called succinic acid. When worn on the skin, body heat causes the amber to release an oil containing succinic acid, which when absorbed into the skin, works like a natural Ibuprofen, blocking pain and reducing inflammation. Note that succinic acid is an alkalinizing acid (like lemon juice) so it won't add to your body's acidity, and may actually slightly lower it.
Baltic amber has some of the highest concentrations of succinic acid found in nature. Commonly known as "teething jewelry" in Europe, Baltic amber jewelry has been a natural remedy for pain relief for hundreds of years. Note that to function well, it must be worn close to the source of pain. For teething pain, this has traditionally been in the form of a necklace. All Baltic amber teething necklaces come safety-knotted and have safety releases built in." ~ source: hazelaid.com
Pain Relief: Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc. It is a well known European method to help decrease the pain associated with teething. Strengthening the body's immune system. In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.
Inflammation: Where chronic inflammation is present, disease lurks. When the body’s cells are chronically inflamed the human body’s immune system response is to increase production of free radicals. Chronic overproduction of free radicals results in inflammatory-related disease. Chronic inflammation can be the common denominator of many seemingly unrelated diseases.
Restoring Energy: The human body naturally produces succinic acid. The salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state. ~ Source: hazelaid.com
