CARE & USES
These are very special Bottles! Take care of them and they will take care of you in so many wonderful ways!
HO'OPONOPONO BLUE SOLAR WATER
Make Ho`oponopono Blue Solar Water using our beautiful Blue Bottles! Set bottles filled with water in the sun for a minimum of 30 minutes for the water to take on the frequency of the Blue and the information from the Sun. Of course the longer you leave it out, the stronger the effect - up to 12 hours. Instead of cooling in the refrigerator, you can try leaving it out overnight to cool off, unless the weather is freezing. Solarizing your water through these blue glass water bottles will make your water sweeter and smoother. It is truly an amazing effect. The blue glass helps the water remember its primordial color frequency, and so water’s memory of itself is taken back to zero point frequency - when it was first born! From there with the frequency of the sandblasted design plus the power of your intention, you can 100% charge up your water with super high vibrations. You can use this water not only for yourself. Pets love it, too! Fill bird feeders with Blue Solar Water. Indoor and outdoor plants adore Blue Solar Water! Add some to your smoothies, or tea or coffee (after making it hot) or to your bath water. Also rinsing your body with Blue Solar Water after the beach or a warm day is another treat, especially if the water is warm, it is then a Blue Solar Shower Water Blessing!
PALO SANTO WATER
A very special way to enhance your water is with the taste and clearing energy of Palo Santo…a very special wood from South America, used for smudging. A dear friend shared this technique and it has become a favorite way to enhance the flavor and energy of water. Add your favorite water to your bottle, leaving about 4-6″ of air space in the bottle. Light the Palo Santo stick until it has a nice flame. Insert the lit stick a little bit into the bottle until the flame goes out. Allow smoke to enter bottle and watch the smoke spiral down to the water! Remove the stick and place the cap on bottle to hold the smoke in. You can add more water to fill it all the way up. You now have Palo Santo Water! It is great at room temperature. If the sun makes your palo santo water hot, it actually becomes hot palo santo tea! It is amazing! You can leave some of the water in the bottle to enhance the flavor and frequency of the your next bottle of water! This is a fun and economical way to give your water an extra delicious flavor and frequency, instead of using essential oils or adding other flavors. Be sure to rinse your bottle thoroughly after doing this. Also if you leave any water sitting for a while, be sure to discard and clean the bottle before using again.
CARE FOR THE SANDBLASTED DESIGNS
Dry your sandblasted design with a clean towel to remove oils and water to reveal the original, high definition look. Apply a little alcohol onto the bottle design, and rub with clean cloth to really make it stand out brightly! Eventually the image will absorb body oils and the image will appear darker, but the design will never disappear, as it is deeply etched into the glass. If you really want to achieve the original “white” look of the design, denatured alcohol works the best. This is not the most pleasant product to use, but it has the most powerful effect on the sandblasted image. Follow safety instructions found on the container, if you choose to use denatured alcohol.
Stay hydrated throughout the day, drinking half your body weight in ounces, in small increments every 20-30 minutes or so, rather than large doses at once. Our liter bottles hold 34 oz. Now you do the math to figure out how many refills you will be drinking each day! You will notice that Blue Solar Water is smooth and sweet tasting, so you will actually want to drink more water than usual! What a great benefit since most of us are dehydrated, and dehydration is a major cause of many ailments in the body. Our bodies are 75-80% water, and 99% water by molecular count, so it truly is important to stay well hydrated with the best water you can find!
OPENING AND LOCKING YOUR BOTTLE
Always open the flip-top lid towards the same sides as the metal loop. This will ensure that the locking mechanism will close properly. If you do happen to open it towards the wrong side, just lift the two parts above mouthpiece, and move them together to the correct side, where the metal loop is. Use this photo to see how the metal loop looks when opened the right way. As for how to open, the idea is to push or pull the two bent-wire connections found on each side of the cap away from the bottle. The easiest way is to either pull with thumb and forefinger, creating a leverage with the base of forefinger against the bottle or you can push them with your two thumbs, while holding the bottle in place. Do NOT try to pry open the wire that is tightly clasped to the bottle–this can result in broken fingernails and discomfort to the finger. A little practice and you will be opening these bottles easily with one hand!
CARRY YOUR BLUE BOTTLE
Carry your water bottle with you to be sure to drink plenty of water. Blue Bottle Love travels very well too! In your suitcase filled with water so you have fresh, clean water upon landing. (Protect bottle by wrapping in clothing or cardboard.) As an empty carry-on, you can fill your bottle with water, once you are inside the terminal at a coffee shop or fountain and have Blue Bottle Love water with you when you travel….this is a very eco~conscious method, and it is what we do when we travel!
DRINK THE BEST WATER
Finding the best water you have access to is something we definitely recommend. Be sure to do your research and get a good quality water filter for your home. Chlorine, chloramines, prescription drugs, fluoride and other undesirable substances tend to be found in tap water. If you can get a whole house water filter as well as a drinking water filter, then you will be well equipped to enjoy water in your home when you drink, bathe, wash dishes, garden, etc. Several locations have spring water delivery as well as high quality water stores. Know where your water comes from. Please stop the cycle of buying plastic water bottles of water. It is such an undesirable way to package water, for water takes on the frequency of that which it is exposed to. So spring water, held in plastic bottles can become tainted with the frequency of plastic and the BPA’s and other plastic undesirables. Wild, Magical and Free Spring Water is our water of choice! This water comes straight out of the earth and is so delicious and fresh.
WHAT IF THE BOTTLE BREAKS?
These blue glass water bottles are very thick and durable, yet they are still glass. Carrying a Blue Bottle Love bottle offers you the opportunity to raise your awareness in regards to tuning in to where your water bottle is and how you are carrying it. Loving your water and your water bottle will definitely have an amazing effect on how long your bottle will last. When you make Blue Solar Water, the water can become warm…or if you leave it in a warm car. To cool it off, you can leave it outside overnight if the weather is not freezing, and your water will taste fresh and amazing the next day! Please note, water expands when it is frozen so please do not put your full or even partial bottle of water into the freezer or leave it outside or even in your car, if the weather is FREEZING…it will almost definitely crack. This is also a very important notification for the European Winter Time! It is still possible to make blue solar water in winter time, as the sun is still shining even though we might not see it. But leaving out the water in the cold or even in the snow for too long might break the glass, so please be very careful. It looks pretty amazing in this pic, but a better way to cool off your water would be to put it into the refrigerator. Enjoy your Blue Bottle Love Water!
CLEANING THE CAP
This is definitely not a picture we love to show, but this can happen if you drink from your bottle and never clean it. To prevent this from happening, clean your cap regularly to keep unwanted bacteria and mold from growing on your cap. If you live in a moist climate, remember to clean your bottle and cap more often if you drink straight from the bottle. When cleaning inside your bottle with hydrogen peroxide, grapefruit seed extract, or white vinegar, allow the cleaning liquid to run over the inside of the cap when emptying out the bottle. Clean the cap with your fingers as well and rinse thoroughly. If you do this BEFORE your cap ever gets dirty, then it will stay nice and clean for a good long time. If you discover that your cap looks like this image or worse, before purchasing a replacement cap, try to clean it with hot water, and one of the previously mentioned cleaners, and a very strong scrubber. We do not recommend washing the caps in the dishwasher. The metal will degrade, and the gasket may lose its nice tight seal. Remember our mouths host quite a bit of bacteria, so even if you are a very clean person, this can still happen. The best way to avoid this from happening is to practice preventive-style cleaning from the start of your relationship with your bottle. Enjoy!!
