What is Baltic Amber?
Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin and comes in a variety of shapes and colours. Baltic Amber is made for wearing (not chewing or ingestion). Amber contains succinic acid, a natural analgesic and healing agent. Amber will warm against your body and the succinic acid will be absorbed through your skin helping with pain relief. Used for centuries, Baltic Amber has been used for a variety of ailments from teething pain to arthritis. Scientific research has shown that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It improves immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream, it stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothe inflammed areas. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognised by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic (pain reliever), which can help to relieve many painful conditions. Material: Natural 100% authentic Baltic Amber

But.....Safety Disclaimer ~ please don't leave children unattended with their necklace or bracelet, it may present a choking hazard.
Baltic Amber Facts:
Amber Facts versus Myths:
Colour of Amber and effectiveness:
Genuine Baltic Amber contains 3-8% succinic acid (and only Baltic Amber). There are many sites that claim one is better then the other. We have not been able to find any true studies to prove that one colour has 3% and another has 8%. Many people think that the lighter the colour the better, but many others say darker is better.
Raw vs Polished and effectiveness:
All of the amber starts out as a matte/raw finish and to get polished beads, they are tumbled in a container with teeny glass beads that give it a shine, kind of like using sandpaper. Most raw/matte finished amber will become polished over time with wear. They all have the exact same effectiveness as they are all genuine Baltic amber in it’s natural form!
Real vs Fake Amber:
There are lots of claims that there is a lot of fake amber out there and there is!! Most of the fakes are the large pieces with inclusions (bugs etc) inside. These sell for top dollar!! The amber products that we sell, are small pieces of amber that you wouldn’t find in an expensive jewelry store, collectors site or museum. If you would still like to test your amber, use ¼ cup of salt and 2 cups of warm water ~ mix well. Place your amber in and it will float. I learned this the hard way….. rinse all of your amber after you take it out of the salt water, lol!!
Can I wear it in the Shower/Bath/Pool?
Absolutely! The water will help the amber warm which increases absorbancy, increasing the effectiveness.
How long does Baltic Amber last?
Your amber will last many lifetimes. The silk string or elastic will wear out before the beads ever do. If and when this happens, feel free to restring it or make it into something else fun and beautiful.
Wearing vs. Chewing:
Baltic Amber is effective when wearing it, not ingesting. Please don’t ever place in you or your child’s mouth. You can’t overdose on it, but it is a choking hazard when in your mouth.
Do I lay my amber in the sun to recharge it?
Nope, what the sun does is warm it, which softens it, which increases effectiveness for the time being. The same way that baths and showers do! Amber doesn’t need any special treatment, it is what it is and works when against your skin.
How do I wash it?
Wipe it with a damp cloth…. simple and effective.
