Wash shungite pebbles by rubbing them with your hands or using a brush to remove any fine black powder.
Place about 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of shungite pebbles per liter (2.1 pints) of water at the bottom of a glass or ceramic carafe.
Leave the shungite in this water for three days in order to obtain maximum effect. Then your activated water will be ready to drink. Begin the process over again, continuing to refill your container regularly.
Shungite keeps indefinitely. There is no risk of it getting negatively charged. However, in order to keep this
preparation physically clean (avoiding an accumulation of nitrates, chlorine, and so forth), we advise purifying the
pebbles in the sun every four to six months. If the water you use is heavily chlorinated or polluted, we recommend
changing the pebbles every two or three years.

You can also place shungite pebbles on the bottom of a carafe fitted with a filter. The water is already filtered and
the shungite can more readily deploy its activating power. This also works well with osmosis-processed water, which is
very pure but if it is missing vital and dynamic qualities shungite can put that back in the water.
Shungite water can be used in compresses or when washing as daily maintenance to maintain the elasticity and tone
of the skin. Shungite’s fullerenes speed up the skin regeneration process and because of that it can help with juvenile
acne and other skin problems.
