For centuries, amber has been used to relieve pain and discomfort in adults and children. When warmed by the skin, amber releases a homeopathic dose of succinic acid, the active ingredient in Baltic amber, which is a scientifically examined medical substance used in contemporary medicine. The highest content of the acid is found in the amber cortex, which is the external layer of the stone. Raw and polished amber may be used for therapeutic and bactericidal purposes. Succinic acid is anti-inflammatory; its therapeutic properties are recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic.
