Copper water bottle I: smooth, slightly matte.
Discover the benefits of an ancient ayurvedic ritual of Tamra Jal and cleanse your system naturally. Tamra Jal is the practice of drinking water from a copper vessel, which helps to boost the immune system, improves digestion, reduces inflammation in the body, and balances all three doshas.
Studies have shown antibacterial & antimicrobial benefits of copper. It is well-known for its antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. When water is stored in a copper bottle overnight, copper ions dissolve in that water in small amounts — a beneficial process known as the oligodynamic effect.
How to use the bottle for the ritual of Tamra Jal?
Before first use, rinse thoroughly using mild soap, or lemon and salt mix.
Prepare the water according to the ayurvedic tradition:
- In the evening, fill your Ayurvedic bottle with fresh water.
- Let it rest during the night (or for 6-8 hours)
- Drink the water with all its benefits the next morning.
Use twice a day, or carry with you all day and re-fill regularly. Drinking from the bottle frequently is not harmful, and the copper bottle will still keep the water fresh and bacteria-free.
How to clean your copper bottle?
Do not use boiling water to wash the bottle. To naturally clean your copper bottle, use a home-made lemon and salt solution:
cut a lemon in half, add salt to the cut side and rub gently onto the bottle.
or: make a light paste with salt and lemon juice. After the salt has dissolved, clean the bottle with a soft cloth.
Rinse in lukewarm water and wipe.
Do not use a harsh sponge — copper is a soft metal and using a rough sponge or a brush can scratch its surface.
Clean the bottle as needed — we recommend cleaning the vessel 1-2 times a week.
PLEASE NOTE that according to Ayurveda, the excess of anything is not well received by the body. This also applies to beneficial substances such as copper. For this reason, take a month’s break after every three months of using the copper bottle. Replacing the copper bottle approximately every three years is also recommended, but not necessary.
