    Half-Sheet material:
    100% cotton with silver fibres
    Natural colour
    Feels like normal cotton sheeting

    Half-sheet dimensions:
    120  x  36 inches  (3m  x  90cm)
    Fits across all bed sizes

    How to use the Earthing Half Sheet

    Place the Half Sheet across the bottom half of the bed on top of the bottom fitted sheet. Tuck the ends of the Half Sheet under the mattress. A thin white grounding cord (2mm, 3/32” thick) snaps onto one corner of the sheet to make a connection with the ground port of a three prong outlet. Your legs and feet will be in contact with the conductive fibres of the Half Sheet while you sleep. Alternatively, the Half Sheet can be placed lengthwise on the bed, for full body contact. Placing any part of the body on the sheet grounds you during sleep.

    Benefits of sleeping grounded

    During sleep the body is recovering from the accumulated stress of daily life. Poor sleep interferes with this recovery process, making us more susceptible to stress-related illnesses. Some people who suffer from this downward-spiralling cycle of discomfort, stress, and insomnia report improvement by sleeping grounded.

    Cleaning the Half Sheet
    Launder your Half Sheet in a washing machine with other bedding. Please use a gentle wash cycle and a mild detergent. NO chlorine bleach or fabric softener should be used. If stain removal is necessary, use a hydrogen peroxide-based non-bleach. Air dry the Half Sheet or dry on the lowest heat setting to avoid damaging the sheet’s conductive fibres.

    Universal Mat Material:
    100% natural rubber containing a highly conductive matrix of carbon particles.

    Univeral Mat Dimensions:
    10 x 27 inches (25 x 69 cm)

    Where to use the Universal Mat
    •    Under your feet while sitting at your desk or computer, while reading, watching TV or eating.
    •    Under your hands and keyboard while typing.
    •    In bed, over your bottom sheet.
    •    As a sleeping pad for your pet.

    How the Universal Mat works
    A thin white grounding cord (2mm, 3/32” thick) snaps onto one corner of the mat to make a connection with the ground port of a three prong outlet. Some part of your body must make bare skin contact with the conductive side of the mat while it is plugged into the grounding socket of your electrical outlet. Do not apply lotions or oils to areas of skin making contact with Earthing products. They will interfere with conductivity.

    Cleaning the Universal Mat
    Always detach the cord before washing the Universal Mat. Wipe the mat with a gentle dishwashing soap and water mixture when necessary.

    A thin white grounding cord (2mm, 3/32” thick) snaps onto one corner of the mat to make a connection with the ground port of a three prong outlet. Some part of your body must make bare skin contact with the connected mat, or the connected mat cover. Both sides of the mat are conductive. Do not apply lotions or oils to areas of skin making contact with Earthing products. They will interfere with conductivity.

    Fabric Cover for the Universal Mat
    This kit comes with a fabric cover for the Universal Mat. The sleeve-like cover is made of conductive fabric. It’s optional and not necessary for using the mat. The silver side of the cover is the conductive side. Place the silver side up and the darker side down. Both sides of the mat are conductive but only the silver side of the mat cover is conductive.

    Cleaning the Universal Mat
    Always detach the cord before washing the Universal Mat. Wipe the mat with a gentle dishwashing soap and water mixture when necessary. The fabric cover is wash machine with a mild detergent, but no bleach or fabric softener. Air dry the cover to avoid damaging the special conductive fibers.

Lightning Safety
Although it is unlikely that you will be hit by lightning, it is recommended to follow standard lightning safety guidelines as directed by the Environment Canada. Disconnect your Earthing devices during lightning and thunderstorms.

Medical Considerations
Earthing (grounding) refers to the process of establishing conductive contact between the surface of the earth and the the body to maintain the body at earth potential. This occurs naturally when standing barefoot on the earth. Earthing is safe and natural for people of all ages, but it is not medicine or a substitute for medical treatment. If you have a medical condition, see your physician or healthcare provider. If you are using Earthing products and taking medications and notice a change in your condition, even if your condition improves, please consult your doctor.

Research has demonstrated that earthing the body plays a substantial role in the reduction of inflammation and functioning of other physiological processes.  On this basis, it is strongly recommended that individuals taking medication to thin the blood, regulate blood sugar, control blood pressure, or to regulate hormone thyroid levels, consult their Doctor for advice and a medication monitoring routine before they begin using grounding products, especially sleeping earthed.

Research studies providing evidence of earthing effects include:
Earthing the Human Body Influences Physiologic Processes
Pilot Study on the Effect of Grounding on Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness

Other research studies are posted here.
