Copper – It is an important support of collagen and elastin production & is a component of melanin, which gives color to the eyes, hair, and skin. Copper is responsible for keeping the hair from turning grey or thinning out. The body requires it to produce enzymes that prevent hardening of the arteries and to help maintain connective tissue & bones.
Placing it next to the skin can help soothe arthritis, rheumatism and other problems associated with inflammation. It improves circulation, helps with exhaustion, and lessens pain. It can improve oxygen exchange and filter pollutants out of the lungs.
Dip copper jewelry in a solution of lemon juice, salt and warm water to remove tarnish. Leave it submerged for a few minutes and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary. You can also use ketchup and a soft-bristled brush. If you use ketchup, make sure it doesn’t touch any gemstones. It can dull the gemstone’s appearance.
