The earth is a six sextillion (that’s six followed by twenty-one zeros) metric ton battery that is continually being replenished by solar radiation, lightning and heat from its deep down molten core.  And just like a car battery that keeps the motor running and the wheels turning, so too do the rhythmic pulsations of natural energy flowing through and emanating from the surface of the earth.    This keeps the biological machinery of global life running in rhythm and balance for everything that lives on the land or in the sea. 

Throughout history humans have strolled, sat, slept, ran and stood directly on the earth with the feet of the skin consistently touching the natural surface of the earth, oblivious to the fact that this simple contact transfers a natural electrical signal to the body.   

Earthing involves coupling the energy of the human body with that of the earth’s gentle surface energy.  This can be achieved in a number of ways – walking barefoot/sitting on the earth’s surface such as grass or sand, or connecting to a device that connects the natural healing energy of the earth into your body.

Earthing is not in any sense you being electrocuted and is one of the safest things you can do.  As part of this process the body comes suffused with negative-charged free electrons abundantly present on the earth’s surface.  The body then immediately equalizes to the same electric level, or potential, as the earth. 


Earthing can help:

·      Defuse the cause of inflammation and can improve the symptoms of many inflammatory related conditions

·      Help to alleviate chronic pain

·      Improve sleep

·      Increase energy

·      Lower stress and promote calmness

·      Normalise the body’s biological rhythms

·      Thins blood and improves blood pressure and flow

·      Relieves muscle tension and headaches

·      Lesson hormonal and menstrual symptoms

·      Speeds healing and helps prevent bedsores

·      Reduces or eliminates jet lag

·      Protects the body against harmful

·      Accelerates recovery from athletic activity


Many people feel much better for earthing themselves and the degree of improvement varies from person to person.  The important thing is to make earthing a long term addition to daily routine so maximum benefits are achieved.

We recognise at Holistics Online that because of today’s fast paced living, grounding yourself in a natural way can be difficult.  Therefore we have a number of tools that help you connect to the natural healing energy of the earth; earthing pads, mats, and sheets. The bed pad and sheet provide excellent options for the home, and the earthing mats help to support you in the office environment.

Bed Pad

The new King Size Barefoot Bed Pad is a 100% cotton half sheet (36" x 122") with interwoven conductive antimicrobial medical grade silver fibers.

The Barefoot King Size Bed Pad is also 25% larger than the Barefoot Queen Bed Pad and therefore it is far better suited for full body grounding/earthing whilst sleeping or resting because of the extra 'tuck' available underneath the top and bottom of the mattress. The sheet can either be placed at the foot or center of the bed, over your bottom fitted sheet and tucked under and around the mattress. Or being super king size it can be laid lengthways on the mattress and tucked in at the top and bottom. The sheet connects to the earth with a grounding cord. One end of the grounding cord snaps onto the conductive sheet connection point and the other end connects to the grounding point of a grounded mains electrical outlet/socket via an industry standard ground glug, or to an optional outdoor grounding rod system.

Placing your bare feet or legs on the sheet easily grounds you during rest and sleep by connecting you to the natural energy frequencies of the earth. The Super King Size Bed Pad offers versatility of use in where it can be placed on the bed, thus offering earthing/grounding to either selected sections of the body only, or to the whole body itself.

Earthing Sheet

High quality fully fitted earthing sheet with a 230 thread count, 100% cotton, interwoven with over half a mile of antimicrobial medical grade silver yarn.  Each side of the sheet has a pocket that wraps around the mattress to hold it in place securely. Suits any double bed up to super king size.  For smaller size double beds just tuck in excess material underneath the mattress.

Experience and luxuriate in complete full body earthing while you rest and sleep, no matter what your arms, legs or body may be doing. Also, there is no need to worry about bed bugs due to the naturally inherent antimicrobial nature of the silver yarn.  Use just like any normal bed sheet, but gain and enjoy the benefits of being fully grounded at night. If you prefer something a little more luxurious than the Earthing Bed Pad, then this is the ideal alternative and high quality solution. Material is washable using gentle detergent with wool mark and can be ironed on synthetic setting.

The sheet connects to the earth with a grounding cord. One end of the grounding cord snaps onto the conductive sheet connection point and the other end connects to the grounding point of a grounded mains electrical outlet/socket via an industry standard ground plug for country of use, or to an optional outdoor grounding rod system.

Earthing Mat

This earthing/grounding mat is extremely conductive. It comes with two connection points which offers greater flexibility over the standard one connection option offered by others. This allows for the feet to be placed on the grounding mat while using the computer, watching TV, reading, knitting, listening to the radio, relaxing and so forth. This option also allows for an earthing wrist band to be connected to the earthing mat at the same time.

This means that the 'mouse hand' can be protected and earthed at the same time as the feet are being grounded. Having the wrist earthed/grounded while using a computer can help with preventing ulnar neutritis, which can affect the wrist due to constant wear and tear from inflammation of the wrist bones rubbing on the desk/mouse mat whilst moving the mouse.

You can also place your laptop on the earthing mat to ground the EMR from that while at the same time earthing yourself by wearing the earthing wrist band connected to the earthing mat! You can also use the earthing mat as a mouse mat, resting your forearms on it while you work at the computer.

Additionally, the flexible earthing mat kit comes with an additional ground plug so the ground lead and earthing wrist band can be used totally independently of the earthing mat!  This means that you can pop the lead, wrist band and plug into a purse, hand bag or jacket pocket, and whenever an opportunity arises, you can choose to ground/earth yourself quite easily, and as often as time allows.

Ideal for office workers, especially those who work in high rise buildings, and for all other people who wish to get in some valuable earthing during working time, visiting friends or whilst on the go.
