Move over Smart Water, blue solar water is in town and it’s set to become the newest health craze.
Recently, Gisele Bundchen was seen walking out of a spinning class with blue solar water in tow. Boasted for its soothing, calming and regenerative effects, blue solar water is a holistic approach to getting in your eight glasses a day.
The blue solar water tradition is linked to an ancient Hawaiian practice of reconciliation and forgiveness called Ho’oponopono. It is a sun-charged water that has been used since ancient times but has only been rediscovered in recent years as a treatment for healing.
The color blue is significant in that it carries meaning aside from its appearance. Blue is associated with the fifth chakra, the throat chakra, which is linked to creativity, self-expression and the search for truth. More anatomically speaking, blue is linked to the thyroid gland, upper lungs and respiratory system. It is also the symbol for inspiration, devotion, infinity and religious goals, producing calm and peace while enhancing the spoken word and lines of communication.
Blue solar water thus takes on a personality beyond sustenance and goes on to support spiritual growth, improve communication and heal.
Here’s how to make your own DIY blue solar water, step by step:
- Fill a blue glass bottle with spring water
- Place the bottle with water and place it under direct sunlight for at least one hour and up to 12 hours. The longer it sits in the sunlight, the more potent of an elixir it becomes.
- Drink the water as you would regular water.
- Easy as that!
Instead of drinking the water, you can also apply it to cuts, sores and acne as well as add a glug of it to a salad dressing or a smoothie. You can also use it as bath water, pet water or plant water. Wherever you use regular water as a way to clean or refresh your or your pet’s body or senses, so too can you use blue solar water. Try it out for yourself – it’s cheap, easy and accessible.
