I love #copper and it’s benefits so much!! •
As someone who also works as a #complementary therapist, I sometimes find the #joints in my #hands and #fingers , can sometimes feel #stiff or even lock - at there worst! Especially after a #Reflexology Treatment when I’m all fingers and thumbs! •
The copper really helps me manage that pain, tenderness and stiffness without having to pop #painkillers ! What I don’t like so much about copper, is how easily it can #oxidise - this is a #natural#chemical reaction between the metal, #air , #cosmetics and other #pollutants ! •
People have asked why I don’t coat the metal to stop this from happening... but why mess with #nature right? Plus, I don’t want to take away ANY of those #healing properties that I’m so fond of!! •
I always try to remember to remove my #jewellery before bathing, showering or cleaning, not to mention when apply my makeup. But all our #skin has a natural acidity to it, and therefore, that #green , dull tinge, is something you can’t avoid. •
So, how do you get rid of “the tinge!” #KETCHUP !!! That’s right, good old ketchup!
Dip it in, leave for a few minutes, then rinse with warm #water and buff with a clean dry cloth! You may have to do it a couple of times if you let them get really bad (naughty!), but it’s so simple, so easy, and most of us have these in our cupboards! Vinegar and lemon also works really well! •
And if you don’t believe me!! Just check out those #before and #after pics! 😘 #handmade#carnelian#cleancopper#handmadejewellery
