Science is very aware of the properties of crystals, though. Hence me pratttling on about quartz used to regulate electronics. Other crystals are used in electronics, too, like Tourmaline.
There may be a historical mix-up here and there between Amber and Ambergris (solidified whale bile, some call it whale vomit!); they are a similar looking and feeling substance, but Ambergris is about 100 times more valuable. Amber DOES have a scent ~ it's a pine scent like the tree it originally came from, again this is according to my DP, but there's not much about these rocks he doesn't know. But the energy-reg effects have been documented for humans since before humans began documenting anything!
Ear candling is another thing all together. There would be studies out there to support it. It's another thing, like herbs and crystals, that work for some and not others; and some will believe in and not others. I have known a few people who've had shocking ear probs that were solved by regular candling; but I'm not totally sure about it. Like anything, you just have to try it and see for yourself if it works for YOUR mind and body. It is reputed to be extremely relaxing, and it gently warms the ear canal, which may largely explain any positive effects it has. Some candles are also imbued with essential oils ~ yet another healing art that some swear by and others think is bunkum. I personally am a believer in essential oils ~ some are very powerful; yet again, you have to be sensitive to the effects. Many a time I've had headaches that were relieved by Lavender oil. But this thread is about Amber ~ so I'll see what I can find re studies about, but I doubt I'll have much success!
I also have been concerned about the strangulation hazard of the necklaces, but the one I have has a low breaking strain. If anyone is concerned about this, put it around child's ankle, or buy a pendant instead and pin it inside the child's clothes. It does not need to be in contact with the skin for the benefits of energy regulation to be felt, but for some, it will up the power. Phew!
