What is Baltic Amber?

Many people don’t realise that amber is actually tree resin, not a stone. More specifically, it is the fossilized resin from an extinct species of trees, and is millions of years old!

What makes Baltic Amber special?
Baltic Amber has an active ingredient called Succinic Acid, which has been known to have many medicinal qualities. Succinic Acid is a natural analgesic that assists with pain relief.

Succinic acid is now produced commercially and is approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration.

Baltic Amber teething necklaces have been a source of traditional healing passed on for many generations and are widely used and treasured throughout Europe as unparalleled alternative medicine with proven health benefits.

Baltic amber in ancient times
While some of us here in Australia may think that amber necklaces are quite a new thing, even in ancient times infants were given amber necklaces to wear.

Amber was thought to contain magical powers, and it was widely known to have healing properties. Besides the healing properties, infants were given the necklaces to guard against baby swapping, offer protection from evil forces, and help against witchcraft!

Ancient Germanic tribes such as the Goths, Nordic peoples, Celts, Romans, Greeks, Arabs and Chinese, all valued amber for its beauty and protection.

Amber necklaces as a baby teething remedy
Baltic Amber is popular with baby teething products as it helps with pain relief, it has a calming affect and it stimulates the thyroid to assist with the redness and drooling associated with teething.

Baltic Amber necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing. By wearing Baltic Amber close to the skin, the amber produces an oil (rich in Succinic Acid) which your skin then absorbs into the body.

Baltic Amber teething necklaces are the ideal solution when you choose to care for your baby in a natural way.

Silicone Teething Necklaces
It’s a well known fact that babies and toddlers love to chew when they are teething.

They will chew on anything they can get their hands on! Our necklaces are designed so that they can have a safe and soft product to chew on when teething.

These necklaces also provide a stimulating object for babies to play with while breastfeeding.

Not only functional, these necklaces are fashionable and look great with any outfit. It can be very difficult for mums to wear long necklaces or jewellery with babies and toddlers, as they love to grab everything and can very quickly break an expensive piece of jewellery.

Our silicone teething products are made with the highest quality 100% food grade silicone, and are guaranteed to be BPA and PVC free.

All Beauty of Amber silicone necklaces have been tested and are fully compliant with Australian & New Zealand Standards (AS/NZS IOS 8124-1:2010).

Why choose Beauty of Amber?
Beauty of Amber specialise in Baltic Amber teething products, all of which are hand-crafted and made with authentic Baltic amber. Our genuine Baltic Amber is of the highest quality and sourced only from the Baltic Regions of Europe. We also have an extensive range of Silicone teething necklaces.

We are passionate about natural alternatives when dealing with the pain associated with teething, and offer excellent customer service.

Rainwater Harvesting Tanks

In Australia drought and water conservation are of constant concern. We are a dry continent; in fact we’re the driest inhabited continent on Earth. Every drop of water is precious, and investing in rainwater harvesting is of benefit to both individual households and our nation as a whole.

Rainwater harvesting simply means the collection of rainwater for re-use, instead of allowing it to run off into the ground. The rain water collected has a myriad of uses; gardening, irrigation, water features, livestock, washing, bathing and heating.

With minimal treatment, rainwater can also be used as drinking water, and is just as safe as the water that comes out of your tap. Just as solar power provides free energy, rainwater harvesting provides free water. Not only will it reduce your utility bill, it increases the sustainability of our reservoir and groundwater supplies. Rainwater harvesting means that you can bypass water restrictions to some extent, using your own supply instead of a limited supply of main water.

Not only is Australia a land of droughts, in many areas floods are a constant concern. Without rainwater harvesting, almost all flood water is wasted as it washes away and becomes contaminated. Not only does rainwater harvesting find use from this abundance of water, it reduces the burden on storm drains and other water safety measures.

Domestically, the most common method of rainwater harvesting are roof catchment systems. Rain that falls on the roof is siphoned off via gutters into a large collection tank. Hundreds of litres can be stored this way. With proper installation and the right filters, no effort is involved in rainwater collection other than the initial setup, gravity does all the work. Due to their size, roofs can collect an enormous amount of water. In a single story house the surface area of the roof is usually greater than the surface area of the house itself. Based on the average floor space of an Australian house, over 200 litres can be collected during a decent rainfall. Any excess is simply filtered out.

Rainwater collection technology is constantly developing in order to deliver cleaner and more abundant water to harvesters. “First flush” diverters protects stored water from contaminants, which are most prevalent during the first flush runoff. Highly advanced meshes keep leaves and debris from blocking the gutters. Outlets and valves ensure a steady, stable flow of water.

There is a variety of water tank systems available. While the tanks themselves are fundamentally the same, a variety of inputs and outputs can be used. These can range from a simple gravity tap to an electric pump that delivers water into the house. Gauges can also be installed in order to monitor and regulate water levels.

The advantages and benefits of rainwater harvesting are so numerous that every household can benefit from installing some form of rainwater harvesting system. There are sizes and systems available for every budget, and the amount saved from reducing utility bills should be considered a discount to every purchase.

Getting Your Money’s Worth With Hair Removal in Brisbane

Hair removal treatments are no walk in the park. They are obviously slightly painful, but having them done by experts can turn your hair removal appointments into anticipated spa dates and well worth the money you pay for them. With the number of spas and hair removal clinics in Brisbane, it is difficult to choose a clinic and expect the best results, not unless the clinic has the best reputation around. If you are searching for a clinic randomly, you could end up going to a clinic who will give you subpar service and and results that are below what you expected.

How Hair Removal is Done
Hair removal treatments use laser pulses to kill the hair by focusing the light on the pigment which absorbs the light and causes the death of the hair follicle. This means that you get a permanent, hair-free, smooth skin, with no need to use temporary hair removal products and procedures such as depilatories and waxing just to get the same results.

Hair removal is the removal of hair from various parts of the body, not just on the obvious places such as the legs and back. You can also have hair removal done on your face, your chest and other places where hair should not be. Hair removal clinics and spas offer related services such as chemical facial peels, treatments for various skin conditions such as psoriasis, sun damage and pigmentation.

How to Choose Your Hair Removal Clinic

Technology

Use a clinic that uses the latest in hair removal technology if you want safe and clean procedures. Sophisticated hair removal procedures uses more powerful light and double safety techniques which reduces the number of sessions needed to completely remove your hair. Despite the more expensive price tag, you reduce costs since you reduce the number of sessions and recovery time is shorter. We use Alexandrite lasers which are currently the best for permanent hair removal or hair reduction. These lasers have 755 nm wavelengths and are most suited for targeting melanin, the pigment that absorbs light.

 

We also use IPL or intense pulsed light, which offer a more subtle form of hair removal that is temporary. This technology uses a broad spectrum light filtered through a glass crystal. Although anyone can do this procedure, we have licensed technicians doing procedures such as these to ensure maximum safety and comfort for our clients. IPL is often the best procedure for removing skin imperfections, such as freckles and sun damage discoloration, acne scarring and facial veins.

Friendly staff
You want to go to a clinic or a spa and enjoy your time there. Grumpy,untrained staff will not make the experience any more relaxing for you. It is best to visit several clinics and get a feel for the atmosphere by looking at how staff interact with clients. You want to feel pampered and cared for, not harassed nor embarrassed when you step into the clinic.

Certified technicians
A licensed staff and a certified operation is your first consideration if you want hair removal procedures that are safe.A licensed staff is expected to know the procedures and to provide professional service.

Customized service
Choose a hair removal clinic that gives you customized service according to what you need. Clinics usually offer packages to suit the needs of clients. Your hair removal technician will talk to you first to determine what you want and what services are most suitable for you. This way you avoid paying for procedures you don’t need and you only need to stay in the clinic for no longer than is necessary.

Our clinic uses specific technologies to suit the type of condition you have. We use the best technology for hair removal to ensure permanent removal of hair if that is the result you want. You will also receive counselling on what to expect, the expected number of sessions, what you can do to prepare, and how much you can expect to spend. All the information you need to make a wise decision on what kind of procedure to get will be given to you before you start.

Make sure that you get the best hair removal treatment that is worth your money by working with us. With a trained and licensed staff, a relaxing atmosphere, sophisticated technology and the desire to give each client the best in hair removal service, you can be sure that you’ll be getting your money’s worth and more with Hair Removal Brisbane.
