I’ve been hearing more and more about Natural Baltic Amber lately. I know several people who use the teething necklaces and adult necklaces and I’ve heard good things about the Baltic Amber.
When Spark of Amber contacted me about doing a review and giveaway with them, I was thrilled. Spark of Amber offers a variety of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other Batlic Amber products including their newly added Hazelwood and Amber Jewelry.
I have been dealing with De Quervain’s tendinitis ever since the birth of our son in February. Some days it’s bad, other days it bearable. I thought a Baltic Amber bracelet would be a great natural product to try and see if it would help the inflammation in my wrists so I went with the lovely bracelet pictured above.
When it arrived, I was surprised on how light it is which is nice as it doesn’t weigh down my wrist (I can’t handle a lot of pressure/weight on my wrists right now). It’s also so pretty. The picture really doesn’t do it justice. The contrast in colors is eye catching, especially in the natural light.
So far, I haven’t noticed a big difference in the wrist pain yet (I’ve only had it about a week and a half though 🙂 ) but even if it doesn’t help the inflammation in my wrists completely, it’s still an attractive piece of jewelry. It’s also very well made.
Here is some info on Natural Baltic Amber:
Baltic Amber is a fossilized resin found in the Baltic Region, primarily in Lithuania. It contains 3-8% of Succinic Acid, long prized for its medicinal qualities. Amazingly, the highest content of the healing Succinic Acid is found in the EXTERNAL layer of the Baltic Amber.
Europeans greatly prize beautiful Baltic Amber for its claimed 100% natural anti-inflammatory, pain relieving, and calming properties for babies and toddlers. The healing oils (Succinic Acid) of the Baltic Amber are said to relieve teething pain, tame baby’s irritability, and relieve inflammation in the throat, ear, and stomach.
Authentic Baltic Amber is also used as an anti-toxic and anti-bacterial agent, for headaches, for skin irritations, for bronchial conditions, and for throat and thyroid conditions (along with many other uses). [source]
