When Shantiva reached out a few of months ago requesting to try out their copper pitcher, I was intrigued.
When I received the copper water pitcher, I was impressed with the look of it, in fact I love the look of the copper.
Since then I have been using it on and off. Drinking water is something I need to work on on a daily basis. Some days are better then others…
How ever I do love how fresh the water taste from the pitcher, nothing compares to it.
Health benefits of a copper pitcher.
Shantiva believes that water stored in a copper pitcher (which is known as “tamra jal”) balances your bodies three doshas (or energies) — vata, kapha and pitta — by gently infusing water with the health benefits of copper.
Some of the health benefits of copper include promoting good health, enhancing digestion and cleansing the body of toxins and free radicals.
Copper is a natural anti bacterial and thus makes it a perfect material to store, and keep, water fresh and sterilized.
You can learn more about the health benefits on Shantiva.com.
Craftsmanship of the Copper Pitcher
Like I leaned before, the pitcher looks beautiful. Each one is hand made with care from a single sheet of copper. This makes each one unique, because they are handmade, and not by machines. And, an added benefit, it looks lovely in my kitchen!
How to use your pitcher.
Fill your pitcher each morning and night. I have the 1.5-liter pitcherd. Shantiva recommends letting the water in the pitcher store for eight hours in order for the pitcher to create alkaline water. The pH of the water will change faster at room temperature, and as I do not like ice-cold water anyway, I leave my pitcher on my kitchen counter.

What I discovered.
In regards to health benefits, I didn’t experience any notable changes. I typically do not drink a lot of water normally, but during the first two months of having the pitcher, my water intake increased and I was well hydrated. I was able to drink one to one and a half pitchers a day, for me a lot of water. Maybe it helped that we had warm weather.
How to clean your copper pitcher.
Copper can react with certain acids, including citric acid found in lemons. To clean a copper pitcher, simply sprinkle a pinch of salt on a slice of lemon, allow the salt to dissolve, and then gently rub it on the surface of your pitcher. The lemon and salt will form a mixture that will naturally remove the patina and restore the copper’s shine. Once done, rinse with water and dry well. Personally, I like the look of the aging patina, so have not cleaned my pitcher.
