Although EM ceramic is not a descaler, it helps prevent limescale build-ups..

The ceramic beads are shaped into small tubes (10.08 mm in size). They are used for water treatment because their shape and structure ensure optimum contact between the purifying clay surface of each bead and the water.



The following examples and quantities are only an indication. You may need to adjust them slightly or sensibly according to the quality of the water you are using and your personal preferences. Feel free to increase or even double the quantities or decrease them until you are happy with the results.

- 1 net of 500g for 10 000 litres of running water

- 12-15 ceramic beads in a 1L kettle

- 12-15 ceramic beads in a 1L water jug

- 50 ceramic beads in a sealed flannel or net.  Make sure that the beads remain in their container so they do not damage the washing machine.

- string 12-15 ceramic beads on sturdy nylon wire and place them on the top tray of the dishwasher 

- 12-15 ceramic beads in the fruit basket

- A few ceramic beads in the tank of your toilet, or preferably one mega-bead.

- A few ceramic beads in each flower pot or vase

- 350 ceramic beads in the garden water tank or in a large aquarium



When using the beads for the first time after sterilising them, first fill the jug half way with tap water and then add the EM ceramic beads. Leave them in for an hour then progressively add more water until the jug is full. Let sit for a few more hours, or overnight. You will taste the difference.

Chlorine is trapped by the action of the ceramic, the molecular action helps separate impurities from the water - tap water quality is greatly improved with this simple gesture. 

The grey ceramic beads can be used again and again for up to 10 years. 



Grey ceramic beads can handle the heats because they were fired at 1200°C. Therefore you can use them on the stove and in various appliances where you would like to benefit from their action on water. You can use a special firing Ceramic figure instead of ceramic beads in your appliances. 

However, please be careful not to swap the pink ceramic beads for this use. The pink beads are much more fragile. They should not be used in boiling water as they may disintegrate quickly. They were made and fired at 800°C only which makes them much more porous.




Put insulated ceramic beads (in a cloth bag, in a net or stringed on a sturdy thread) in the cutlery basket or on the to tray. They will help reduce the amount of washing-up liquid you need to use by up to half, while maintaining the best results, clean and shiny dishes and cutlery.



Ceramic beads can be placed in a sewn flannel, net or bag. They will automatically enhance the washing process. 



When taking a relaxing bath simply place beads in the water of the bathtub, loose or in a flannel. You could also choose to get an EM ceramic figurine specially for the  bath. It is fitted with a suction cup and can easily be placed under water in the bathtub, and it will never be in the way.



By using the EM beads, you will need to use less chemical disinfectants and descaling agents and your toilet will remain clean longer. 



Your plants will love being watered, even more. Put a few ceramic beads in the watering can (20-30 beads per 10 litres). Use of EM in gardens with Microferm and EM-A+ and EM-1



Put a few ceramic beads in the wash water and leave your produce to soak for 10 minutes.

Ceramic beads are also recommended for longer storage and better freshness.

Even if the vegetables have already been washed, put some ceramic beads in the container or bag then place them in the fridge. 



Ceramic beads are often sold as an accessory to an aquarium in specific shops. They can be placed in the inner or outer filter, and even in a corner of the aquarium.

They are commonly used water treatment agents,and are also good plant fertilisers. They do not have a disruptive effect in the aquarium water, they just gently improve the quality of the water in that environment.

You will notice the water will remain clear for longer, which means that water changes will be less frequent.

Focus on EM Ceramics


Chamarrel® has pioneered the distribution of EM ceramic beads in France. For nearly 20 years we have made it our mission to make EM ceramics known as an eco-friendly, gentle alternative, via our website, on social media platforms, at eco-fairs and other live events.

At the beginning, we faced a lot of doubt and bad reports, being called "charlatans" online, where of course, everyone is free to give their opinion. We also have seen on blogs and forums various comments comparing the selling price of EM ceramic beads. This has generated doubt and confusion among some customers,  some professionals and the general public. It is fair to wonder if a high price means better quality? ". What can also be confusing is the product descriptions on the websites, mentioning "Special this" or "special that", seeming to imply some EM ceramic have added properties compared to others, without explaining the reason.


Do you feel a bit unsure ?


At Chamarrel®, we make sure of the quality of the EM ceramics. To us there is ONLY ONE quality of EM ceramic, the one we have been distributing for nearly 20 years. It is the EM ceramics imported directly from Japan. They were developed there by Professor Teruo Higa and we chose to sell Ceramic made by following his method in Japan.


There is no EM ceramic made "especially" for one use or another, except for special figurines which simply differ in their shape, but not in their properties.


The EM ceramic can be used in many settings and there is only one variation to be mindful of : pink ceramic beads are fired at a relatively low temperature (800°C). They are therefore porous and fragile as a result. They can only be used in cool water, and need to be replaced regularly (roughly every 6 months) because they become saturated with impurities. They are otherwise very similar in use, shape and are made with the same ingredients as the more sturdy and more durable Grey EM ceramic beads (fired at 1200°C the can be used over and over for up to 10 years as long as they are cared for properly).


We sell our EM ceramic at a reasonable price and provide indications for their possible use, and guidelines regarding quantity. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions and remember that a higher price is not always a sign of better quality...
