The use of grounding and earthing products is a fairly new phenomena in the alternative health but has proven already to be very successful, affordable and easy to use.
That is why many people look for products like earthing product reviews to improve their overall health.
That is the reason I decided to have a look at the earthing and grounding basics in general and the earthing mat in particular to see if there is a brand or model that performs better than an other.
The earthing and grounding mat reviews I did are far from complete and although I tried to dig as deep as I Would I still advise you to do your own research before purchasing any of the mats I reviewed.
I have found four earthing mats that are available online and all are in about the same price range to make the comparison a little even.
Ground smart earthing mat from ground smart earthing
Why this company made it not a little easier to find their product information I don’t understand, but with 4.8 rating I had a better look at it.
What I noticed first is that most of the reviews are not from verified buyers and that always make me watch a little better what people write.
With almost all reviews that were not from verified buyers giving it a 5 star rating I am a little worried about the value I have to give to these reviews.
Here are the specs we found after digging around
- 68 x 25 cm. This is about 26 x 10 inch)
- Rubber at the bottom to keep it in place
- Soft top for comfort
- Cable plugs in a standard outlet
Customer reviews of the Ground smart earthing mat silver technology
I only looked at the reviews from people who actually bought this earthing mat since I always have my doubts about the people who receive a free product to write a review.
The average of the other reviews still gave it an average of 4.1 and I have to mention that one person gave it a 1 star because he found just like me, that most reviews were not from verified buyers and he or she though the mat smelled bad.
One other mentioned it did not work for him and it was too small, that is why he gave it a low rating.
It is not easy to give this earthing product a good or bad buying advice. Most of the verified buyers are pretty happy with it and mentioned it works well.
This mat is made of a micro silver conductive threat. Sound nice, but all silver threat is conductive.
No complaints about the surface of the mat and the rubber bottom probably keeps it in place under a desk or under a keyboard or laptop very well.
The size of the mat is about the standard size that most other manufacturers use although someone mentioned it was too small, I do not see why.
The company claims you can also use it as an earthing sheet and sleep on it with your feet.
I believe it is better to buy a separate earthing sheet for you bed because of the contact surface. If you move your feet away from the earthing mat on your bed the effect is gone. But that is just a personal opinion.
The cleaning can be done with just a damp cloth and some hand sanitizer according to one of the answered questions.

Customer reviews of the universal earthing mat by Dr. Mercola
I found a lot more verified purchase here and that makes it easier for me to form a more reliable opinion about the earthing mat from Dr. Mercola.
With over 10% giving it a 1 star rating I looked at those first and found that most of them found no benefits in earthing and that is the reason they gave it a 1 star rating.
The 2 star raters was not much different and most of them also claimed no benefits and a few complaint about the smell the mat gave of when the box was opened. A strong oily smell and they wondered why it was made of a rubbery material.
The 3 star ratings were more about the quality of the mat itself and that is does not less to long and break down too fast.
The 4 and 5 stars are of course buyers of this product that felt the benefits and had great experiences with it, although still a few mentioned the quality being a little low. I have to mention that a lot of the people who mentioned the quality also used it in the bed and like I wrote before I think it is better to by an earthing sheet for that purpose since it is made for your bed.
Our opinion about the Earthing Universal Mat
Although this product is offered by Dr. Mercola that does not automatically means that is better and I think that the reviews show that. It is just that people buy faster from a respected source.
The outlet checker is a very good thing for if you have no multi meter or have no idea on how to check if your outlet is earthed or even earthed right.
Overall this earthing mat seems to work well and again we see people who use it in their bed complaining more about the quality of the product. In my opinion this is good for under a keyboard, laptop or under the desk with your feet on it and not too much for use in the bed.
Universal earthing mat from Earthing
This product contains 2 earthing mats, two wires an outlet checker and a users guide.
All the product remarks were from verified purchasers and this makes the ratings a little better reliable.
The description was a little vague again and no too much information about the product itself.
There were not so many reviews so it is hard to give a full review and our opinion because it is only based on a handful remarks.
Customer reviews of the universal earthing mat by earthing
Like I mentioned there were only a few (14) verified buyers that wrote a review about this earthing mat.
1 wrote that he did not like the smell and that is something we read about other earthing mats also.
Maybe a warning for people who are sensitive for the smell of oil, chemical products.
Most ratings were a 3,4 and 5 stars and again the lower rating were from people who did not feel any difference and doubted the benefits of earthing in general.
The higher ratings were of course happy with the product and recommended it.
Our opinion about the Universal earthing mat from Earthing
It is not easy to form an opinion based on just a few raters and buyers.
This mat seems to me is very similar to all the others we looked at and the only nice thing is that you get two instead of one. You could use one under your desk and another one under your keyboard or laptop.
Some remarks about the quality just like the other brands and the thickness of the used materials.
ground smart earthing mat from Moove
This is a nice earthing mat package. It comes with an earthing mat, a grounding plug and a wrist band to make it possible to use it without resting your bare feet on the mat. The whole earthing mat and wires can be stored in a nice storage case.
Customer reviews of the ground smart earthing mat
Many verified buyers and that makes it in my opinion more reliable and trustworthy to use these opinions from real users to base our opinion on.
The lower rating were again mostly from people who did not feel any benefits of the earthing principle and a few complaints about the quality.
Customer reviews of the ground smart earth mat by Moove
With 86% of the buyers rating this earth mat with a 3,4 or 5 stars we had to take a look at all these ratings.
The lower ratings again about not feeling any benefits and the higher mentioning it is a great product.
The wrist strap was mentioned several times as very comfortable and appreciated for making it able to stay grounded without having to use the mat with bare feet.
Our opinion about the smart earthing mat silver
This mat has the nice advantage that is comes with a storage case that makes it easier to take the mat with you while traveling or back and forth to your office and home.
The ratings are pretty good and from a lot of people who actually bought this earthing mat.
The seller is very active to answer any questions about his product and that is something you do not see too much online.
The high number of 3,4 and 5 star ratings tells me that this is a decent product and although the lower ratings mention it is not working, there are more factors than just the earthing mat to decide if it works in the long run.
Our overall opinion about or earthing and grounding mat reviews
This is my personal opinion and not based on any research.
I think that an earthing mat is best used on or under a desk on the floor while doing something else.
The use in a bed is in my opinion possible if you do not move to much during the night and have as much skin as possible exposed to the mat.
I believe that an earthing sheet is the best choice for sleeping since it is made for a bed and is lot bigger than the standard 26 x 10 inches. We will fo grounding sheet reviews later to help you with this earthing product.
But you can read my full earthing sheet review here to see what my opinion is.
In these earthing mats for sleeping I will review and have a look at the available sheets for earthing while sleeping and the earthing sheet side effects, since this seems to be the most effective way for most people
The people who mentioned that it was not improving have complaint maybe have an underlying problem that needs more medical attention. There is too much research done that proofs the health benefits of earthing with facts and that they are not fiction.
for the earthing mat DIY people I wrote a post on how to make your own earthing mat and the materials you need for that.
