The benefits of amber oil, how to use it and how you can buy or make your own.
One of the most valued derivatives of pure, natural baltic amber, amber oil is a prized possession of those who know where they can find it. Actually, it is liquid amber.
Europeans long ago learned that amber oil rubbed into the skin did many fabulous things. One of which was to regenerate the skin. It is one of the earliest known anti aging treatments.
Amber oil is produced by dry distilling natural baltic amber, which amber, among all the ambers of the world, has the highest concentration of succinic acid. It is the succinic acid that imparts the “magical powers” to amber.
Amber oil from Natural Baltic Amber is believed to have strong therapeutic properties.
Dr. Veniamin Khazanov of the RAS’ Institute of Pharmacology at the Tomsk Scientific Center says “For aged people, succinic acid has proved to be indispensable. It is capable of restoring the energy balance at the cellular level, which is often upset as the years go by, and helps the patient regain his youthful energy.” He says also that it has proven the equal or better of many commercial drugs and is significantly less expensive.
You can see clinical test information at Clinical studies on succinic acid (succinates) antixodant effects.
Being amber in a liquid state, it easily moisturizes human skin, getting deep into the tissue and supplying it with negative ions. It rebuilds damaged electrostatic lines and fields, fluffs battered tissue and restores patency of in blood vessels thereby improving blood flow.
It can be used as a quick treatment of a bruise, burned skin or muscular contraction and pain.
It is used to remove dandruff by moisturizing the scalp and strengthening the hair follicles.
When smeared with amber oil immediately after a blow, one reduces the occurrence of subdermic blood clots – bruises.
Amber oil is a natural disinfectant and antiseptic agent It neutralizes bites of gnats and other insects.
Added to a bath in an amount of 1-2 ml., it makes the skin more elastic and reduces the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.
And for those who have a little time, amber oil is very easy to make.
Amber oil is made from pure, natural Baltic amber by heating the amber in a closed container. (The container must be free of oxygen so that the amber does not burn.) The process is called dry distillation. It is a very easy process and if often done on the stove in cottages in Eastern Europe along the Baltic Coast where it is easy to come by amber.
When heated this way, the amber breaks down into amber acid, amber oil and amber rosin. Each is valuable in its own right. In fact, the value of the sum of the three parts is much higher than the raw amber that was used to create them.
The fastest way to distill the oil out of the amber is to first make an amber powder and distill the powder. The process is sped up because of the larger surface area.
If you wish to make your own amber oil, you can buy amber chips in bulk that you can dry distill, or buy ready made amber oil, at Amber Cures
