Real amber is not a gemstone or mineral, but instead is fossilized resin from prehistoric trees that grew as far back as almost fifty million years ago, primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea. It is generally accepted that the amber from the Baltic region is the world's finest.
Baltic amber is considered the finest and most therapeutic amber in the world. Amber is well known for its pain easing, rejuvenating and vitality boosting effects as well as its ability to help protect against illness. It is a well researched adaptogen and has long been referred to as an Elixir of Youth. Baltic amber gems were not only valued for their unique beauty but also for their healing and protective qualities. Amber is treated as a medicinal substance, and many healing elixirs have been made with it down through the ages.
Amber is a natural analgesic. The teething necklaces work as a natural pain reliever, by having the baby wear the necklace it warms against the skin, releasing its therapeutic properties safely and naturally.
