If you’ve been paying attention to parenting websites, health websites, and social media in the past few years, you’ve probably already heard about Baltic amber and its many benefits. Let’s take a closer look at what Baltic amber really is and how it can benefit your life.
What Is Baltic Amber?
Contrary to popular belief, amber is not a rock or gemstone. Amber is tree resin which has become fossilized. Amber is found in many different locations around the world; Baltic amber is specifically from trees in the Baltic region.
How is Baltic Amber Used?
Baltic amber has been used for centuries for pain relief, inflammation relief, and the soothing of various types of discomfort. Today, Baltic amber is popularly used in the form of Baltic amber jewelry especially necklaces and bracelets.
When Baltic amber is used in jewelry, it is first harvested and then shaped into ‘beads’ which can be strung into a bracelet or necklace for either a baby, child, or adult. The Baltic amber works when the warmth of the skin causes the succinic acid inside the amber to be released through an oil. This is succinic acid oil is absorbed into the body through the skin, where it works by reducing various types of inflammation.
Baltic amber is especially popular for babies, where it is commonly used as a natural method of reducing teething pain. It is also popular for reducing inflammatory pain, such as arthritis pain, in adults.
Unlike pain medications and pain-relieving ointments or other medicated products, there are no side effects when you use Baltic amber for pain and inflammation relief. This makes Baltic amber especially beneficial for children, who are often more susceptible to medication side effects than adults.
Although Baltic amber doesn’t work immediately, it may take a few days for enough succinic acid to be absorbed into the body for significant pain relief, it is a long lasting pain relief that will last regularly when you wear your Baltic amber necklace
Targets the source of the pain:
Most pain relieving medications are designed to mask pain, whether it’s teething pain, arthritis pain, headache pain, and more. Baltic amber, however, actually targets the source of the pain inflammation and reduces it, thereby reducing the pain as a whole rather than covering it up with medication.
Baltic amber jewelry is affordable, especially when you consider the cost of having to buy new bottles of pain relievers over the months and years. When you take care of your Baltic amber jewelry the right way, it can last for years--saving you plenty of money in the process.
