Homemade Distilled Water

There’s a new health fad in town, and it’s one of the easiest fads to follow. The fad that’s fast gaining traction among the health buffs is something as simple as drinking distilled water. Several studies have discovered that drinking distilled water is beneficial to one’s health, hence the uptrend in this practice.

If you think, however, that drinking distilled water is expensive, then you thought wrong. There are many ways to drink distilled water and you don’t need to spend a gazillion bucks to get this done. All you need to do is find a way to make your own distilled water.

It really is simple; all you need to do is understand how distilled water is made, so you can craft your own “distillery” at home. Once you get the knack of creating your homemade distilled water, you can be as healthy as you want.

Believe it or not, the items you need to distill your own water can already be found in your own home, inside your kitchen. You just need to remember this process: Steam – Condense – Store. That’s all you need to understand the process of making homemade distilled water. However, a regular counter top water distiller is always the fastest and cheapest thing to use.

First you need to fill your container with water. Once done, you need to boil it. Others make the water “settle” first before they start boiling or heating the water. This allows the minerals to settle at the bottom of the container first. While you are boiling the water, you will need to “catch” the steam that rises up. As you know, steam is actually water vapour, and if you condense it, it will turn back into water. This time, though, once the vapour turns to water, it will be rid of its impurities. While the water is condensing, you need a container to “catch” the water droplets from the condensation. Once everything has been steamed and condensed away, you now have your distilled water, now safe for drinking.

Now that wasn’t so difficult, right? All you really need, to make homemade distilled water is a lot of container to store your water in. Make sure that these are clean, and cannot be contaminated.

If you would like to make homemade distilled water but won’t need to use it for drinking, there is an easier way to do so. If you will be needing your distilled water for gardening, or filling up your aquarium, then this process is just as effective. Simply fill up a large container with water. For recycling purposes, you may use water collected from the rain. Cover the container and let it out in the sun to heat it up. Allow the water to settle for one or two days. Once you are done, you will see that the water’s minerals and sediments have settled. You may now transfer the water to cleaner containers. Make sure that you don’t use the water from the bottom of the container, as this is already filled with sediments and minerals.

Making distilled water at home is so easy. Don’t make it too complicated; just know the basic steps and you’ll have all the distilled water you need in no time.
