The ﬁrst historically recognised use of shungite was that of spring water gushing up from shungite rocks in the region around Lake Onega in Karelia. It was by drinking this water that the inhabitants of the region became aware of its properties. The use of this water over the centuries is living proof of the well-being that it brought to the population and its consumption is more than ever of current relevance.
The inhabitants in the area around Lake Onega in Karelia Russia have benefited from bathing in and drinking the river and spring water in the region for centuries. It's only since the late 2000’s that the West has learnt about Shungites amazing properties.
Simply putting raw black shungite pebbles in contact with water causes a transformation in its quality and qualities. Tap water coming from domestic water supplies is disinfected with chlorine and other chemical products. Rainwater is now also compromised due to spray drift, chemtrail laying and other toxic activities.
Shungite / Fullerene water
Constantly using this water for drinking and cooking without any additional puriﬁcation means that our bodies are permanently in contact with these molecules even if there are only traces of them remaining. Tap water whether rain or town supply is subjected to pumping through electric pumps which generate intense electromagnetic ﬁelds. This completely destroys the living structure of the water. Consequently unless we are proactive our water is “dead” with its structure broken. Consuming this water has a negative impact on the cells of our body and on the proteins, and it augments the proliferation of free radicals, which contributes to cellular ageing, inflammation and disease.
With its power to reactivate, revitalise and purify, shungite gives water back its ability to hydrate our tissues and penetrate deeply into cellular structures and at the same time increase resistance to disease.
Shungite water can be regularly used as an energising drink. During these toxic times we would do well to make it part of our daily protective and preventative regime. Shungites has powerful anti-inflammatory and healing properties and its free radical scavenging properties are scientifically proven to be 30 times more effective than activated carbon. Shungite will help with ongoing detox and defend from further toxic attack.
If you are in good health, we advise drinking about 250ml every morning (but take a week-long break from it once a month). If you are sick or convalescent, you could drink 500ml - 750ml (around 3 glasses) a day. Shungite water has no side effects or contra-indications. Like all regenerative and purifying food and drink, it can stimulate the draining of toxins from the body and thereby speed up processes that are underway. As with all energising drinks, shungite water should be consumed in moderate daily amounts rather than single large doses.
Preparing Shungite Water
Wash and rinse your shungite pebbles by rubbing them with your hands or using a brush to remove any ﬁne black powder.
Place about 100 grams of shungite pebbles per litre of water at the bottom of a glass or ceramic carafe.
To start the cycle leave the shungite in this water for three days (72 hours) in order to obtain maximum effect. Then your activated water will be ready to drink. Begin the process over again, continuing to reﬁll your container regularly. If you use a drink bottle rotate through smaller multiple water containers if necessary to achieve your 72 hour cycle.
Shungite keeps indeﬁnitely. There is no risk of it getting negatively charged. However, in order to keep this preparation physically clean (avoiding any accumulation of nitrates, chlorine, and so forth), we advise purifying the pebbles in the sun every four to six months. If the water you use is heavily chlorinated or polluted, we recommend changing the pebbles every two or three years.
You can also place shungite pebbles on the bottom of a carafe ﬁtted with a ﬁlter (Brita etc). The water is already ﬁltered and the shungite can more readily deploy its activating power. This also works well with osmosis-processed water, which is very pure but if it is missing vital and dynamic qualities shungite can put that back in the water.
Shungite water can be used in compresses or when washing as daily maintenance to maintain the elasticity and tone of the skin. Shungite’s fullerenes speed up the skin regeneration process and because of that it can help with juvenile acne and other skin problems.
Preparing a Shungite Bath
Shungite water has comprehensive calming effect. That’s why it is used in spa and wellness centers for healing baths. It helps to relieve stress and fatigue, boost your immunity and fill you with natural energy. If you’d like to relax after a long day infuse about 4-500gms for a bath. Run a full very hot bath on your shungite pieces and wait till its comfortable to enter or place your shungite pieces in the first hot water when you begin to run a bath and leaving them sit before filling your bath with normal temperature hot water.
Either way allow 10-15 minutes for infusion. Slip into a warm and relaxing shungite bath, concentrate on your body and feel safe and secure. Shungite water will moisturise the tissues, restore pH balance of your skin, relax tense muscles, and bring a feeling of comfort.
Shungite is a powerful anti-oxidant and detox agent. TGA restrictions forbid us from recommending that anyone consume shungite powder. Some people do choose to consume shungite powder in small amounts of around 1/8 to 1/4 of a teaspoon daily. People mix the powder with juice, water or a smoothie and swirl to finish any powder residue left in the bottom of the glass. Many people use the powder in a 1 week on / 1 week off cycle.
Our shungite products do not contain any impurities or additives. Shungite can be tested for conductivity however this cannot be done with powder so always ensure you are getting your authentic shungite powder from a trusted source. Our supplier is located near then shungite deposits in Karelia Russia and holds government certifications & guarantees of the authenticity, quality and purity of our product.
Shungite for Water Filtration
Modern ﬁltration systems can certainly remove pollutants but they do not restore the water’s natural dynamic quality. We create and provide water filtration systems that include a shungite cartridge as the last part of the water line. Contact us for more information.
