One common explanation as to why Amber is so advantageous for teething children is because it contains high amounts of Succinic Acid. Body heat from the skin causes the healing oil to be released from Amber and absorbed into the bloodstream, providing babies with pain relief and an added calming effect.
Amber has been known to posses healing and calming properties for thousand of years. Ancient peoples believed that it can help to treat many different medical conditions.
Traditional medicine in China and Europe has been using powdered amber to treat various physical ailments throughout recorded history.
