The Cleansing & Healing Benefits of Shungite

Shungite has been trending all around the world in recent years and it is actually one of the world’s oldest hydrocarbon-based rocks and of two types of rock that conducts electricity! Its name is derived from the place where actual shungite is derived, a village in Russia, called Shunga. However, even though it has existed for a long time, shungite is relatively new in the western part of the world and many people are fascinated by its healing and cleansing benefits. So, let’s see how beneficial shungite can be to you. 

It contains fullerenes

All shungite products and all of their different shapes are filled with fullerenes which have remarkable properties. Fullerenes are known to provide a great boost to the regenerative ability of human tissue and they can influence the exchange of neurotransmitters - thus improving an individual’s resistance to stress. So, there is no wonder that people often use shungite products to relieve stress through relaxation and mediation, and even place it around the house to purify the energy of the space. 

What is more, shungite water has shown to be beneficial to our health, due to the fullerenes and in small doses it can improve your health. This also includes the potential to reduce the risks of the following diseases:

  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Kidney and liver diseases
  • Pancreatic diseases
  • Gastritis and dyspepsia
  • Gallbladder issues
  • Anemia
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Chronic fatigue 
  • Arthritis

Beneficial for our skin

Since fullerenes are filled with anti-inflammatory properties, it is believed that it’s a great idea to add shungite to your skincare routine. For those purposes, you can use shungite stone powder in order to make a paste and apply it to your skin in order to clean it from imperfections. Plus, due to the antioxidants shungite contains, it can help you slow down the aging process of your skin and keep it youthful and smooth. 

EMF protection

Another cleansing ability of shungite includes EMF protection. EMFs (electromagnetic frequencies) are emitted from all the devices we have at home, especially through WiFi. For years, scientists have been doing research on what EMF exposure can do to our bodies, and they have found some links to the exposure with health problems, including some types of cancer, reproductive damage, fatigue, insomnia, heart rate issues, etc. 

On the other hand, shungite is believed to help us cleanse our homes of such radiations and help us live in a healthier environment. There are many ways in which shungite can help protect you from EMFs. You can wear shungite pendants on your bracelets and necklaces which will keep you safe; also, you can strategically place shungite stones or pyramids throughout your house (near the computer, router, microwave oven, etc). However you decide to use it, many people have said that it helped protect their homes from EMFs. 

It purifies the water

Just like mentioned before, shungite contains fullerenes which can help purify the water we drink. Tap water is probably filled with various toxins or even metals that can damage our health, but you can easily purify it with elite shungite for example. What fullerenes do is they attract and neutralize all contaminants found in water, including:

  • Bacteria
  • Nitrates
  • Fluoride
  • Pesticides
  • Heavy metals
  • Chlorine
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Volatile organics

This is probably due to fullerenes and their ability to maintain a high amount of hydrogen, and because shungite also contains carbon which adds to the purification process and benefits. 

Cleansing for the soul

Since shungite boosts the positive energy we feel, it is often used in reiki and other relaxation massages, mediation, and yoga. It also helps us feel more grounded and down to earth, keeping our chakras open and helps us stay mindful and present. People often wear shungite jewelry for these reasons and even use shungite stones in massages and meditating. 

Even though shungite is new to the western world, we have already recognized an array of its benefits. Mostly, it helps us cleanse and heal our bodies and souls, if used properly and it can greatly impact the quality of our lives. So, if you want to protect yourself from EMFs, purify your water or add a cleansing property to your skincare routine, don’t hesitate to look for shungite.
