How to Prepare Shungite Water

March 29, 2023 2 min read

Cleaning the shungite chips
Sterilize 200g shungite chips in boiling water for 10 minutes. Cool, then rinse thoroughly. Don’t use soap.

Making your first batch of shungite water
Place the well-rinsed shungite chips in a 2 litre glass or ceramic container. Fill with cold tap water or filtered water.  Use 2 liter of water for each 200g of shungite chips.

Let the water stand with the shungite chips for 24 -72 hours. The container must be open to breathe during this process. A thin, natural fibre cloth can be used to cover the container to exclude dust and insects.

Using shungite-infused water
Pour the shungite-infused water into another lidded glass or ceramic container. This water is the finished water, ready for use. Refill the original shungite container with tap or filtered water to prepare a new batch.
In Russia, shungite water is typically used therapeutically, and not on a full-time basis. Work up to using 2-3 glasses of shungite water per day. Shungite water is great for skin and hair, and for minor wounds. Pets and plants respond well to this water.

Once per month, put the shungite chips outside to recharge in the sun for an hour. Sterilize the container at regular intervals. Replace the shungite chips with new chips approximately every 1- 2 years, depending on the quality of the source water.
