A popular menu item at most spas, dry brushing is praised for doing everything from exfoliating to detoxifying, to reducing cellulite.
Our professional grade brushes are the same ones used in spas. Made with a durable wood handle, and natural boar bristles. Natural bristles are recommended over synthetic by most professionals for dry brushing, and are also preferred by spas.
Dry brushing is a technique used by supermodels to keep their skin looking flawless and youthful. It also stimulates the body’s circulation and lymphatic systems. Many naturopathic doctors use dry brushing to help with bloating because massaging the lymph nodes helps the body shed excess water and toxins. One of the immediate effects of dry brushing is smoother skin, but it can also help improve digestion, kidney function, and more. Some even claim it helps to reduce their cellulite.

Dry brushing energizes and stimulates the body, so the best time to dry brush is first thing in the morning, before you shower, but you can do it any time of day you prefer.
Begin at the ankles and brush upward using light but firm strokes. You always want to brush toward the heart because that is the way the lymph flows naturally. After you finish your legs, brush your stomach, arms, and shoulders. Your skin may be a little pink afterward, but it shouldn’t hurt—if it does, you need to lay off the pressure! Avoid sensitive areas such as open cuts, abrasions and any patches of eczema or psoriasis.
As dead skin cells slough off and accumulate within the brush bristles, it’s important to clean your dry brush regularly. After each use, lightly spritz with an anti-bacterial spray. You can make your own from 1 cup water and 15 drops Thieves Oil (or Tea Tree Oil). Add oil(s) and water to a spray bottle, shake to mix before each use. Hang brush to dry.
Once weekly, wash in hot soapy water. Use an anti-bacterial soap, or add few drops of Tea Tree Oil or our Thieves Oil to your shampoo or body wash to clean the brush. Rinse well with clean water. Shake excess water off and dry out the freshly washed brush in a non-damp area, with bristles facing down. If you have a sweater rack in your clothes dryer, that is an excellent way to dry the brish quickly and thoroughly. You can also leave in the sun to dry, or a well ventilated area.

This brush is just like the one I purchased 30 years ago - which, by the way, just now is needing replacement. I like the curve of the handle, not too long, not too short. The bristles are just right for my delicate skin.
