Earthing Sheet & Grounding Mat FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers

The Earthing adapter has a 98k ohm resistance inside it for safety reasons.

With multimeters the continuity range usually has a certain resistance threshold in which it considers a wire to be closed. If your resistor is of greater resistance than the threshold on your multimeter, then even though current can flow through it, the meter will not register continuity.

The ohm setting on the multimeter gives you the maximum ohm it can measure up to. For example, 2k (0 to 2000 ohm), 20K (0 to 20,000 ohm), 200K (200,000 ohm), 2m (0 to . 002 ohm). If the resistance is greater than the range setting, it will give a reading of zero.

If you select the Ω symbol setting to 200k it will bypass the resister and give you a reading, not all multimeters have that option as their default is usually set at 20k.

It is a little confusing if you aren’t familiar with using a multimeter. Please, contact us here if you have any questions. 

V~ is the symbol for AC (Alternating Current) This setting is for testing a current that is moving. When testing the bodies volts when grounding, the measurement will go up and down, which means it is an alternating current.

 V─ is the symbol for DC (Direct Current) This setting is looking for a type of current that flows in a single direction without changing polarity. It is often found in batteries and electronic circuits. Using this setting will not give an accurate reading when testing your earthing product. 

A lot of multimeter settings only go to 200 and not 20. It needs to be set at 20 because we are only testing for a low voltage. 

Yes, just have the electric blanket under the earthing product. 

  • No, they will cause too much interference with earthing the body. 
  • Normal bed sheets to be use only on top of our underlay sheet or underlay bed mat. 
  • The cotton/silver earthing sheets, we recommend to lay directly on top of. 

All our earthing products available will effectively ground the body the same, they are just made from different materials. 

  • Our premium bed mats & premium bed sheets can have a normal bed sheet over the top. 
  • The cotton/silver bed sheets we recommend having direct skin contact. 

Yes, an Australian adapter and cord is included with all earthing products. We can change the adapter to suit a different country if needed. 

As long as you want. We spend majority of our lives separated from the earth. Reconnecting with our natural environment is one of the most beneficial things to do to maintain good health and vitality. 

Yes, most animals can also use an earthing mat, sheet or pad. 

No, our cable incorporates a 98k ohm resistor that acts as a safety fused link and it is impossible for your earthing sheet to conduct electricity when only connected to an earth outlet of your home. The power point does not need to be turned on in order for the sheet to work. The top two pins of the plug are plastic and the single bottom pin is what connects you to the earth. 

Please, check with your healthcare practitioner first. 

PJ’s and most clothing are not designed to insulate the body enough to interfere with Earthing. From what we have tested materials such as cotton, bamboo, silk, flannelette and wool work really well with our earthing products.

It only takes a small amount of contact to effectively ground the body. 

We recommend talking to your doctor first as there has been a study showing that Earthing can increase thyroid function.

See study here and scroll down to “Experiment 3: Effect on thyroid function of earthing of the human organism during night relaxation

Yes, they are all designed to connect to the earth outlet. 

 

No, all our grounding products do not conduct any electricity. So you can leave your power point at the wall turned on or off, it will make no difference, you will still be grounded. 

 

  • Yes, but you will have a much stronger connection with direct skin contact. 
  • Our premium bed mats and premium bed sheets can go under a normal bed sheet. 

 

Our earthing cords do have a 98k ohm resister and is designed to burn out if any high voltage were to go through it. 

To be safe and for peace of mind, simply unplug your earthing product whilst in a lighting & thunder storm. 

Earthing and Grounding are both the same, there is no difference, they’re just alternative names. Whether you’re spending some time barefoot outdoors or using one our products, call it what you want – you’re both Grounding or Earthing your body. 

No, wash once every 1 – 2 weeks with cold or warm water in washing machine (wash with other linen and towels for optimum silver shine and clean contact) Never use bleach, fabric whitener or oils as they can tarnish the silver and damage the conductive silver thread.

How Earthing Sheets Work.

Our grounding sheets allow you to connect to earth’s natural energy from the inside of your home. Our sheets have a silver thread woven into organic cotton and a plug attachment that connects to the wall socket. The two top prongs on the plug are plastic so only the earth outlet is connected.

Reduced stress & anxiety, improved digestion, better sleep, reduced pain & inflammation have all been proven through grounding the body on a regular basis.

All our products are tested for quality assurance. We regularly test to ensure that we have full contact with the earth when connected to one of our products. You can test yourself using a multi-meter, click here to see our 5 steps on how to use a multi-meter and test it with a grounding product. 

Our grounding mats are made from a carbonized leatherette which works as a low amperage conductor. 

Our sheets will last as long as any other cotton bed sheet, just don’t expose them to high temperatures as cotton is known to shrink. 

We put a connection patch on each side just to make it easier to connect to the power point depending on what side it’s on.

From we’ve tested, using two cords at the same time makes no difference in grounding the body. 

  • Our premium bed mats & premium bed sheets can have a normal bed sheet over the top. 
  • The cotton/silver bed sheets we recommend having direct skin contact. 
  • They will all effectively ground the body, they are just made from different materials. 

Yes, we are an Australian company.
