What Makes Baltic Amber So Different?
Baltic amber resin comes from a fossil produced by ancient pine tress that grew in Northern Europe millions of years ago in an area that reached from southern regions of what is now known as Scandinavia as well as neighboring regions of the Baltic Sea bed. At some point, the climate grew warmer and these pine trees, known today as conifer trees, exuded great amounts of natural resin which scientists say achieved its stability over time through oxidation. It has been used for a variety of medically related reasons such as a natural analgesic, helping to fight inflammation, infections and respiratory disease. When you place the amber necklace next to your baby's warm skin, the amber releases healing oils which are naturally absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. The powerful oils contain a very special ingredient known as succinic acid. Extensive scientific research bears witness to the fact that succinic acid can do wonders on the human body. For examples, succinic acid stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling, soothing red and inflamed gums and enhances calmative, analgesic, antispasmodic, expectorant, and febrifuge (anti-fever) functions.
