Wearing amber jewelry can help inflammatory pain.

You likely already know about this benefit of amber jewelry, even if you don’t realize it! Amber teething necklaces and bracelets work because amber contains a naturally occurring acid called succinic acid; this succinic acid is contained in an oil secreted from the amber when it is worn against the skin. And when the oil is absorbed into the skin, the succinic acid gets to work inside your body.

Succinic acid is natural anti-inflammatory agent. In teething infants, it works by reducing the inflammation which causes sore gums, thereby reducing the soreness and pain experienced in teething. In adults, succinic acid can tackle all sorts of pain caused by inflammation, including arthritis and aching muscles. If you experience regular pain from inflammation, then wearing amber jewelry regularly could help you manage it more effectively.

Wearing amber jewelry can reduce anxiety.

Another great benefit of succinic acid is that it can help reduce anxiety, especially in adults. Succinic acid is a soothing agent and when it is absorbed into the body, it can help reduce some of the stress that can lead to anxiety in many people. It is especially beneficial for anxiety when worn on a regular basis so that the succinic acid has more time to build up.

Amber jewelry is good for your skin.

Succinic acid can help improve your skin in several ways. It can prevent dehydration in the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, and activate the production of proteins which may lead to younger looking skin. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that there is succinic acid in a number of skincare products! However, you don’t need toand shouldn’t—rub amber jewelry on your face in order to reap the skin benefits of wearing amber jewelry. All you need to do is wear the jewelry like normal and the benefits will happen when the acid is absorbed into your skin.
