Earthing products description and usability
Earthing has proven to be an incredibly effective solution to problems generated by modern lifestyle related to isolation from the ground beneath us.
Some of the most important benefits declared include:
- Reduction of chronic pain
- Mood improvement
- Increase of energy and vitality
- Jet Lag control
- Reduction of stress
The best way to practice earthing will always be stepping deep into nature and connecting with the ground, but of course we know that for most people that's actually impossible to do so, and less in a consistent manner understanding that results accumulate over time.
That's where earthing products come in to offer a practical solution, giving consistency to your earthing practice, bringing the ground to you, allowing you to adapt and balance every day of your life, giving your body the tools it needs to heal and recover properly as it's meant to do.
The technology behind earthing products has been developed within the last decade, offering a large range of products that align with many different purposes.
But how do these products actually work?
They are made of conductive materials such as silver-coated fiber, carbon fiber or stainless steel fiber (depending on the product category), creating a path directly from the earth into your body, allowing electrons to flow through it and therefore balancing our system, getting rid of free radicals accumulated over time.
You can connect your earthing product to the earth in two main ways:
Visibly connect your products to the earth outside with a grounding rod or metal stake that you plant into the dirt. However, if you live in an apartment or double-story home, it may not be practical to use a grounding rod.
Grounded Wall Plug
A convenient way to earth your products is via the third ‘earth’ port of your powerpoint or wall plug. This requires the use of a specially designed earthing lead and earthing adapter that conducts earth, not electricity.
For safety, we have a 50,000 Ohm resistor in our Grooni Earthing Lead, plus fine wires like fuse wire. This protects against the very rare event of a power surge via a building’s earth wiring. Not even a mosquito bite of power could pass through the resistor. Plus the fine wires would burn out, creating a barrier before the resistor is reached. This means you can leave your Grooni Earthing products plugged in all the time.
Step-by-Step Guide for Setting Your Earthing Kit
1. Unpacking Your Kit
Each earthing kit is thoughtfully packaged to include all the essential components you need to get started. Upon unboxing, you should find a ground checker, a coil cord, and the earthing product itself. Ensure that all these items are present to enable a seamless grounding experience.
2. Checking Your Ground
The next step involves connecting the ground checker to your wall outlet. This important step verifies that your home's electrical system is properly grounded. Proper grounding is crucial as it allows for the free flow of electrons from your body into the ground outside, which is the fundamental principle behind earthing.
3. Making the Connection
Once you've confirmed that your system is correctly grounded, it's time to establish a connection. Insert one end of the coil cord into the plug-in point on your earthing product. Connect the other end of the cord into the grounding port of your wall outlet. This completes the grounding circuit, enabling you to tap into the earth's natural energy.
4. Setting Up Your Space
With the technical aspects taken care of, it's time to personalize your earthing experience. Place your earthing product in a location that suits your lifestyle and comfort. Whether it's spread over your favorite couch, tucked under your bed sheets, set up at your workspace, or placed in any other cozy corner of your home, the earthing product is designed to be versatile and blend seamlessly into your daily routine.
Cleaning Instructions for Your Earthing Sheet
1. Regular Cleaning
It's recommended to launder your earthing sheet once a week to keep it fresh and clean. Use a gentle, fragrance-free detergent and a warm wash cycle. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners, as these can damage the conductive threads.
You can tumble dry your earthing sheet on low heat. Alternatively, line drying is an excellent way to preserve the lifespan of the conductive threads. Make sure the sheet is completely dry before reusing.
3. Regular Inspection
Regularly inspect your earthing sheet for any signs of wear and tear. If you notice any damage or thinning of the fabric, it may be time to consider replacing the sheet to ensure you continue to receive the full benefits of earthing.
Cleaning Instructions for Your Earthing Mat
1. Regular Cleaning
Wipe your earthing mat regularly with a soft, damp cloth to keep it free from dust and dirt. Avoid using harsh cleaning chemicals, as they can damage the mat's conductive properties.
2. Deep Cleaning
For a more thorough clean, you can wash your earthing mat with a mild soap and warm water. Be gentle to avoid causing any scratches or damages. Rinse thoroughly and ensure no soap residue is left behind as it could interfere with the mat's conductivity.
After washing, allow the mat to air dry completely before using it again. Avoid direct sunlight or high heat sources, as these can degrade the mat's conductive surface.
4. Regular Inspection
Regularly inspect your earthing mat for any signs of wear and tear. If you notice any damage, it may be time to consider replacing the mat to ensure you continue to receive the full benefits of earthing.
