Historical Background

Natural Baltic Amber necklaces, made from raw, Amber, have been worn for centuries in Poland because of their magical powers. Their powers were described as magical by people who lived in the times before anyone knew about things such as acids and antibiotics.

Albert the Great (1193-1280), a Dominican and a philosopher, identifies amber as the first among the six most effective medicines; succinum, ocastoreum, mors, camphor, tartarus, and aurum. Tinctures originating from the same period were based on beer, wine or water and were effective cures for stomach and rheumatic aches. There are no records even vaguely suggesting any undesirable or harmful effect of amber.

Succinic acid is now produced commercially. And it is approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

It is interesting to note that the Chinese rely on Pure, Natural Baltic Amber. Centuries ago they found what science has since proven, that the succinic acid (also known as Amber Acid) from Natural Baltic Amber is the active agent and that they need Natural Baltic Amber for their remedies to be effective. Simply stated, even unripe gooseberries and rhubarb stalks, which are the richest in the natural acid, contain a thousand times less of the acid than in Baltic amber- succinite.

Health necklaces and bracelets transfer to your body the benefits of succinic acid which is the operative health inducing chemical in natural Baltic Amber.

When amber is heated, it releases oils and succinic acid. These cling to and soak into your skin taking with them the natural chemicals that benefit your body.

Your body heats the amber necklace and the low body heat causes a very effective, slow transfer of the oils and amber acid.

So in order for an amber necklace to work, it must be worn below your clothes so that there is direct contact with the skin.

Note that you must have amber with high succinic acid content. And the amber with the highest succinic acid content is natural Baltic Amber. It has more than 100 times the acid content of many other ambers. If you use a necklace that is not made from natural Baltic Amber you will not get the desired effect like you would with a natural Baltic Amber necklace.

Soothing depends on the transfer of the oils to the body.  The more oils transferred the more soothing effect.

If you want jewelry, buy jewelry.  But if you want pain relief for your baby, buy the most effective soother and make appearance a secondary issue. Color has no effect on the rate of transfer. It is the number and size of the pores.

The oils are transferred through the open pores in the amber surface.  So for best effect you want a teething necklace that has amber beads that have many, large open pores.

Polishing amber reduces both the size and number of open pores.  The more highly polished, the less transfer and less effect.

So called raw, or burnished amber beads have more open pores than the same sized polished beads.

When you buy a teething necklace, buy one that gives the best effect.  Don’t waste your money or put your child through needless pain by buying something for looks.
