Albert the Great (1193-1280), a Dominican and a philosopher, identifies amber as the first among the six most effective medicines; succinum, ocastoreum, mors, camphor, tartarus, and aurum. Tinctures originating from the same period were based on beer, wine or water and were effective cures for stomach and rheumatic aches. There are no records even vaguely suggesting any undesirable or harmful effect of amber.
When the plagues devastated Europe during the middle ages, amber was used for fumigation. Burning amber is both aromatic and irritating. And that is due to the high content of succinic acid in the smoke.
The Prussian Priest Matthaus Praetorius recorded that in 1680, “During the plague not a single amberman from Gdansk, Klaipeda, Konigsberg or Liepaja died of the disease”
