Hope all of you are doing well and keeping healthy and safe in these difficult times. During this stay-at-home time, lets explore some age old traditions of our Indian culture and how they are relevant even today!
Copper, Brass, Steel were a part of the everyday life in India before plastic took over. Copper for example was used for everything from containers, boxes to utensils and serving platters. Water was stored in copper containers and copper glasses and tumblers were used to drink water and other beverages like buttermilk, sherbet etc.
Since ancient times Ayurveda has advocated the benefits of drinking water from a copper vessel. Ayurveda states that when you store water in a copper vessel it has the ability to balance all the three doshas (vata, kapha and pitta) in your body. This water is known as "Tamrajal" literally translated as "Copper Water" and by far the most purest forms of water.
Copper is known to have anti-microbial, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps improve digestive health and overall wellness. Copper also retains the cold temparature of water for a longer time giving you that much needed natural relief in these hot summer days.
Copper coins can be dipped and kept in water overnight to purify the water in a natural manner.
In ancient times people used to throw copper coins in rivers, lakes, ponds and wells. This was not about blind faith but to kill the harmful bacteria in the water with copper. This purified water would be useful for fish and other living beings within the water and the humans and animals drinking it would remain healthy.
Copper is environment friendly, BPA free and lower carbon footprint than plastic.
