FAQ

How should I use & care for my Tamra copper bottle?

  • Ayurveda suggests you store room temperature water in copper vessel for at least 6 hours or overnight for maximum benefits. Drink 1 glass first thing in the morning and 2 - 3 glasses throughout the day. Replace with fresh water every evening. 3 months on / 1 month off is a general rule.
  • Only fill with tap or filtered water. This means no juices, soda, smoothies or flavored water of any kind.
  • Part of the beauty of un-lacquered copper is the patina it gains over time. To return it to it's original sheen, commercial copper cleaners may be used. A natural alternative cleaner is lemon. Gently rub a half lemon dipped in salt over the bottle, let sit, rinse with warm water. 
  • Hand wash only.
  • If you have any concerns regarding the use of this product, please consult your doctor.
  • Please keep in mind these bottles are carefully hand made, but occasional imperfections and small dents do occur.

How can I find my bracelet size?

To determine your bracelet size, please follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measure or a strip of paper just below the wrist bone, where you would normaly wear your bracelet and measure it.

Step 2: If you are using a plain strip of paper, mark your size with a pen on that paper. Next measure the paper strip with a ruler. That is your wrist size..

Step 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size with the appropriate measurements below:

Fitting Style             Add inch(es) to your wrist size

Snug Fit                     add 1/4" to 1/2"
