Copper, a metal revered for centuries, possesses an abundance of natural benefits that support our overall well-being. For more than 5,000 years the practice of Ayurveda has harnessed the healing properties and extraordinary value of copper (also known as Tamra) in order to: store and naturally purify drinking water, support healthy digestion and immunity, heal internal and external wounds, and create everyday and ceremonial tools. Read on to discover how the addition of copper tools in your wellness routine can help clarify and balance both skin and soul!
Copper Water Bottle
How It Works
While it may not be technically classified as a precious metal, copper’s healing powers are extraordinary. Our Copper Wellness Water Bottle is crafted of 100% pure copper and allows you to maximize your healing and hydration routine everywhere you go! You likely already know the vital role adequate hydration plays in supporting healthy, functional bodies, but did you know the vessel you drink from is equally important? When water is stored in a copper vessel, small amounts of copper ions gently dissolve in the water. Ready for the magic of it all? This water adopts the same properties and health benefits as the metal! In scientific terms, this is called the “oligodynamic effect.” Because copper is naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, water stored in a copper vessel becomes safely and naturally purified of harmful pathogens, bacteria, and fungi. And that’s just one of the powerful benefits that copper lends.
Makes Water Alkaline
Have you ever explored the drinking water aisle in your local food store? If you previously thought all water was the same, we’re here to prove it’s not! But don’t worry- we’re not about to tell you to pay $5 at the grocery store for a single disposable bottle. “Premium” drinking water you find in the store is often alkaline water. When stored in a copper vessel, copper ions gently dissolve in the water increasing the water’s pH and making it alkaline. This alkaline water helps to detoxify the system and supports healthy calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium levels. It also lowers the temperature of the body, which is especially helpful during the hot summer months when the body tends to heat up due to the prevailing weather. Our Copper Wellness Water Bottle creates a constant supply of alkaline water that doesn’t require a trip to the store.
Priti Tip: As a part of your evening skincare routine, fill your copper bottle with water and let it sit overnight (at least 8 hours) for water to become fully ionized and to experience maximum benefits. In the morning, you’ll have a refreshing wellness drink to sip on during your AM skincare routine to replenish any hydration lost during sleep!
Fights Off Free Radicals (And The Damage That Comes With)
Copper is a naturally powerful antioxidant with the ability to prevent oxidative damage and neutralize free radicals, which contribute to age symptoms and various health problems. Free radicals are one of the main reasons for the formation of fine lines on the skin. By neutralizing these free radicals, copper helps reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and age spots, resulting in radiant, rejuvenated skin that glows from within.
Helps to Heal Internal and External Wounds
Copper nanoparticles, which gently seep into water stored in a copper vessel, contain excellent healing properties. Acne, cuts and sores on the skin, and additional inflammatory symptoms greatly benefit from copper’s antibacterial and antioxidant properties. And thanks to its naturally high biocompatibility, copper also aids in skin cell regeneration- helping to replenish the top most layers of your skin.
Aids in Digestion
You’re likely familiar with the phrase, “health begins in the gut.” Copper’s ability to reduce inflammation of the stomach lining supports healthy digestion, allowing it to be a natural remedy for ulcers, indigestion, and infections.
Copper Skincare Tools
Use copper skincare tools to scoop and apply skincare treatments, masks, and moisturizers with ease and without product contamination. Our Copper Skincare Spatulas achieve precise and effortless product application with naturally antimicrobial copper that provides a soothing and cooling sensation to the skin, turning every application into a truly indulgent experience. Our custom designed Copper Skincare Spoons are calibrated to scoop the exact amount needed for each use and add a nurturing element to uplift your self-care ritual.
Prevents Product Contamination
Skincare products stored in jars including makeup, cleansing balms, moisturizers and more run the risk of contamination during the application process. Copper skincare tools allow for hygienic application, preventing cross-contamination and keeping your skincare products pure and potent.
Clarifying Skin and Soul with Copper
From skincare tools to drinking vessels, massage tools, tongue scrapers, and jewelry- the role of copper in Ayurveda is significant and transformative. Our copper wellness accessories adapt these time-tested techniques for the pace of the modern world with tools that transform your daily tasks and chores into holistic, sensorial rituals. The result? A self-care routine that balances mind, body, and soul– one that defines what it truly means to be well.
