Amber Oil

Amber oil is wonderful stuff if you can find a good one. It isn’t always easy to find. I know a place that provides very high-quality amber oil.

Amber is one of the most characteristic products of the Baltic republics, especially Lithuania. It washes up on thr word electricity comes from, because static electricity was noticed by the ancients as a property of amber, that it attracts straw. In Persian, amber is called kahroba, from the words kah 'straw' and roba 'thief' (related to the English word “rob " ). The modern Arabic word for electricity was coined from kahroba (following the pattern of “electros " ). So when you use amber oil, think that it has this electric energy throbbing within.
The word amber comes from Arabic. Originally it meant 'ambergris'. Ambergris is a completely different substance. Ambergris is a pale-gray, waxy goop that is expelled from the digestive tracts of whales into the sea water and washes up on shore. It is very expensive. You who have worked in the perfumer's craft will know that ambergris is very valuable in perfumeries’; it functions as a fixative and it is reputed to bring out the highest fragrance notes in whatever it is added to. It had the French word gris'gray' added to its name to tell the difference from the other (yellow) amber.

The two things got called by the same name because, I suppose, they both are found washed up on the seashore. But ambergris was the first stuff to be called “amber " The Arabic word for ambergris is `anbar. The Arabic-English Lexicon informs that originally this word `anbar meant 'whale'. Maybe it comes from the Arabic verbal root `abara (with an extra augmentative -n- added in the middle).

Interestingly, another Arabic word from the same root is`abir meaning 'fragrance, perfume'--because it wafts across the air to your nose). Maybe the whale was called by that name because it is the only sea creature big and powerful enough to cross the ocean from one side to the other. That is just my guess at philology. The word for whale became applied to this product of the whale, and lastly to the other valuable thing that's found on the seashore 'ambergris'. Ambergris is a completely different substance.
