You may be wondering what distilled water actually means. The distillation of drinking water is a process that dates back as far as 200 a.d. as many explorers of the time have noted in their travel journals. Removing the contaminants and impurities of seawater was essential for their survival. This basic process is still used to this day. Thankfully for most of us, it is not a matter of survival (although for some it still is). We now enjoy distilled water simply for its pure, fresh taste and versatility.
Believe it or not, distillation is occurring all around you right now, it is called the hydrologic cycle.
If man-made contaminants were taken out of the picture that precipitation would be purified…remember when it evaporated impurities were left behind.
Distilled water offers us so many uses as well as lifesaving hydration resources in some circumstances. Following mother nature’s plan has provided us a value system that has resulted in water essential to our existence. Oh, and on a lighter note, it tastes darn good!
