So if it isn’t actually a stone which is why it isn’t cold to the touch, then what is Baltic Amber really?
Amber is made of fossilised tree resin from forests that were flooded by the sea millions of years ago. The fossilised resin used in Baltic Amber for Africa products originates from areas around the Baltic Sea in Europe. Baltic Amber contains the highest percentage (8%) of succinic acid compared to Amber from other areas.
It is a very old custom for babies and children to wear Amber in various parts of Europe and the Far East due to the naturally healing benefits of Baltic Amber. Owing to its succinic acid, the healing component found in Amber products, Baltic Amber is reputed to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing of wounds, making it the perfect all-natural remedy for baby teething pain as well as other ailments in children and adults.
