What is Baltic Amber?
Thales discovered that amber attracts light bodies when rubbed gently, as amber has electrostatic properties. The Greek word for amber, àlektron, is the origin to electron and electricity.
Amber boosts circulation, calms fevers and infections, alleviates asthma crises and congested respiratory tracts. It also works against stress and depression, improves sight in general and alleviates discomfort caused by teething in babies.
It’s a common practice in France, Germany and other European countries to give a newborn an amber necklace to help them get stronger, foster a more tranquil sleep, facilitate teeth growth and avoid skin rashes.
Amber is a fossilized softwood resin. It’s also extremely rare in the Mediterranean and was very sought-after in Classical Antiquity populations. In addition to its translucent quality which bears a close resemblance to a gem, it has always been attributed magical and curative powers.
Since the Bronze age, Egyptians and Greeks brought amber from the Black and Baltic seas. Upon discovery, it was found that King Tut’s burial chamber presented several objects made from Baltic amber. Known as the Northern Gold, amber has always been featured in jewelry, especially for children, as they were given necklaces, pendants and bracelets to strengthen them and protect them from illnesses.
When in contact with the body heat, the necklace emits highly potent essential oils which relax your baby, help them get a more tranquil sleep, regulates their appetite and harmonizes their chakras. This is why it’s called the Magic Necklace.
