The benefits of soaking up Vitamin D have been highlighted over and over again. The sun rays not just tan your body but also have healing powers that can further treat a number of skin issues, like rashes, skin allergies and helps in naturally giving a healthy glow to the skin.
According to Ayurveda, there are several ways to reap the benefits of sunlight, one being the sun charged water. This age-old healing potion is known as Surya Jal Chikitsa. Sunlight is a form of energy (urja), and the sun-charged water is basically water that is left under the sunlight to absorb the goodness of sun rays. It is believed that the sun-charged water has magical healing properties that boost overall health and cures several health issues.
To prepare this magical potion at home, fill a glass bottle with water and place it under sunlight for a minimum of 8 hours. As per the traditional methods, the water should be kept under the sunlight for 3 days for 8 hours, daily. Do not refrigerate this water as it reduces the health-enriching properties of the water. It is believed that when sunlight falls on water, it enhances the molecular structure of the liquid, giving it energy and further makes it alive.
