Which Earthing Wrap Should I Use?
20 x 135cm Silver Earthing Wrap
Select Silver if:
- you have an allergy to nickel in stainless steel or 9-14 carat gold
- or if you prefer a softer fabric. The premium is a more robust fabric that feels like coarse linen
It is made from silver-coated fibre and sustainably produced Lyocell/Tencel (which is a soft and slightly stronger than cotton). As silver is a precious metal, you need to ensure that you wash off creams, oils, lotions or essential oils to the area of skin where you will apply the earthing wrap. Many creams and lotions contain ingredients that damage or oxidise the silver. This includes deep heat, tiger balm, Voltaren and other anti-inflammatory and heat rubs. This wrap comes with a 1-year warranty and 1-year satisfaction guarantee.
20 x 135cm Premium Earthing Wrap
Select Premium if:
- you are not allergic to nickel
- you may want to use creams and lotions on the sore or injured area
- or you want to use long-term (beyond a short to medium term injury). Premium has a 3-year warranty, versus a 1-year on Silver.
Our premium earthing fabric is made with the highest quality medical grade (316L) solid stainless steel filament (20%), German Made Antibacterial Mineral Fibre (10%), and sustainably produced Lyocell/Tencel from FSC Certified forests (70%). It is permanently antibacterial (certified) and will prevent bacteria and odours from occurring within the fabric throughout its lifespan.
Our premium wrap CAN BE USED WITH ALL CREAMS, lotions, balms, magnesium or essential oils as these cannot damage the stainless steel filaments. This product comes with a 3-year warranty and a 1-year satisfaction guarantee.
How to Care for Your Earthing Wrap
Silver: Wash after every week of use. Warm or hot machine wash on gentle cycle with a detergent that contains no bleach, no whitening agents, no oxidizers and preferably no oils. We use Aware Sensitive or Earth’s Choice laundry liquid, which is available from most local supermarkets. Dry in shade.
Premium: Wash after every month of use. Warm or hot machine wash in detergent that contains NO bleach, as bleach gradually degrades the antibacterial effectiveness. Bleach will NOT damage the conductive earthing effect. This fabric has a natural crinkle that will pucker after washing. To restore shape, hand stretch while wet after washing. You can do this by laying it flat (on a table) and stretching on each side. To dry, hang on a clothesline or hanger in the sun or shade.
Washing helps avoid the build-up of hair and body oils that can act as a barrier to conductivity (and earthing strength).
Why use an Earthing Wrap?
This earthing wrap is designed for targetted healing to a sore or painful area.
A study published in the Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine shows that healing accelerates and muscular damage resolves more quickly with localised earthing during the day and night, while sleeping earthed at night.
Earthing is so effective for recovery from injury that the USA Tour de France team used it on 8 consecutive tours to accelerate wound healing and reduce stiffness and pain after falling from their bike. The team used localised earthing (patches) as well as earthing overnight (recovery bag) to treat their injuries. Our equivalent products are our earthing wrap and earthing underlay (which contains considerably more conductive earthing fibre than a recovery bag).
