Pin Away Wednesdays: Copper Craze!

Collecting Copper Decorating with copper tips for cleaning copper and health benefits of drinking from copper

Welcome friends! I am back again today for another post in my Pin Away Wednesday series. For my last Pin Away Wednesdays post I shared highlights from my Kitchens Inspiration board. If you have been a regular blog reader here then you know that a kitchen update is on the agenda for summer. My husband and I are still trying to decide on flooring and whether or not we might try some type of cabinet refinishing, but I am certain that I will be incorporating more French farmhouse style into the design elements and the decor, including copper. I have always had a touch of the copper craze! Today I am sharing highlights from my Copper Craze Pinterest board along with some information about the health benefits of copper and copper cleaning tips. Here are some of my favorite images from the board. Pin away!

When it comes to designing a French kitchen, incorporating copper is quintessential. Copper pots, copper pans , vintage copper molds, and other types of copper utensils are highly collectible and functional at the same time.

Kitchens Inspiration

Every French Country kitchen will have at least a piece or two of copper on display as decor or for daily use. Copper cookware can be quite expensive, but it is important to remember that with proper cleaning and care, copper can last for centuries!

Moscow mules are beautiful, but did you know there are health benefits to drinking water from copper cups?


Health Benefits of Drinking Water Stored in Copper Pitchers or Cups

Copper has many health benefits including amazing anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. Practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine teach that storing and drinking water in copper utensils is beneficial for us because of its astonishing properties. To receive the most copper water bottle benefits , store the water in the copper bottle, pitcher or cup overnight and then drink it throughout the day the next day.


BED SIDE AYURVEDA The benefits of storing water in copper vessels has been part of human history for millennia. The ancient wisdom of ‪#‎Ayurveda‬ suggests that water stored overnight in copper vessels has the ability to balance all the three ‘doshas’ in the body by positively charging the water. The Ganges Jug & Tumbler are ideal for the bedside or workspace, where water is kept for hours at a time. Shop the collection on our #WebBoutique #Nourish #Ayurveda #Copper #BridalWishList

Good Earth

Water stored in copper vessels is helpful in improving the digestive system, helps to slow down the aging process and breaks down fat. It is also helpful in preventing cancer,  thyroid gland disorders, and other severe illness.  (Documented medical study on copper water bottle benefits can be found here.)

Copper Cleaning Tips:

If you are going to be using copper for drinking or cooking or if you prefer shiny copper, then regular cleaning and care is essential. Luckily you can clean copper easily with items you probably already have in your pantry.

How To Clean and Polish Copper | Kitchn

1)    Use lemon and salt for cleaning copper

Two readily available the kitchen supplies for cleaning copper are lemon and salt. Simply cut the lemon into two equal halves and then pour some amount of salt on the top of the lemon. Slowly rub the lemon and salt on the surface of the copper utensils especially at the bottom or at the edges of the utensils. After rubbing the whole lemon and salt leave the rubbed utensil for at least half an hour so as the citric acid begins working on the copper. The citric acid and sodium chloride react together and remove impurities from the copper. Finally, rinse off the paste with water and then dry the copper with a towel.

2)    Use vinegar and salt for cleaning copper (or brass)

If you don’t have lemon, you can use a paste of salt and vinegar. Simply add an equal amount of salt and vinegar to make a thick paste. Apply the paste to the the copper, then leave it for half an hour. Rinse it off with water and dry it with a cotton cloth.  

*Alternately, you can also use plain baking soda or even ketchup to clean copper. Any of these methods will result in beautiful, shiny, clean copper without the use of toxic chemicals!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what all of the “copper craze” is about! Copper has been used throughout history and even though it is having a “moment” as a design trend, it is anything but trendy. Copper is absolutely timeless!  I am also looking forward to drinking water stored overnight in a copper pitcher. I will let you know if I can tell any difference in my overall health after drinking it several times.
