Healing Properties of Amber

Amber Beads SOS Only Natural
In Only Natural we work closely with a company called Amber SOS and are looking forward to having Ben from the company in the shop on Saturday 14th October to share his experience of working with Amber and how it can benefit the wearer. Here are the basics to whet your appetite.
Amber, though very beautiful, isn’t a gemstone like the others, it’s fossilized tree resin. Extruded by trees approximately forty billion years ago it has turned into the beautiful ‘gem’ we prize so highly and wear today. The best Amber for therapeutic use comes from the area around the Baltic Sea as it contains a higher percentage (8%) of succinite.
Succinite is the component responsible for the healing properties, mainly pain relief and relaxation, that Amber is known for. To benefit from this it is worn next to the skin for as much of the time as possible. It’s pain killing properties have made it popular for babies going through the pain of teething but it is equally beneficial for adults and is reported to have helped in cases of many chronic ongoing daily conditions.  Bones and joint are top of the list but not exclusive.  Wearing amber has been very successful in dealing with Repetitive Strain Injuries as well as ongoing pains and strains caused by repetitive posture or movements. Many report better sleep patterns as a result of Amber’s relaxing properties and others have reported improvement in migraine, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, chest, ear, nose and throat problems (including hay fever and sinus problems), eczema and psoriasis.  Amber is well known in it’s native area, the Baltic countries, as a remedy for thyroid problems.
