When I incorporated dry brushing to my lymphatic drainage ritual, I became obsessed with the way my skin felt after I dry brushed. Naturally, I dove deeper into the science and learned that dry brushing is like a massage for the skin.
It promotes blood circulation (hence the tingling); stimulates the lymphatic system, which leads to the release of toxins, and is the #1 way to remove dead skin cells from your body & skin. How did I go this long I without removing all those dead skin cells?
After using my brush every day, I couldn’t help but wonder how to clean it. I did some online research, tried a few things, and as a manufacturer I came up with my very own 5-Step Guide To Clean Your Body Brush.
Here's What You'll Need:
- Your Body Brush
- A Small Clean Hand Towels
- Non-Scented Pure Castile Soap ( We Use Dr.Bronner's Baby Unscented )
- Organic Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Towel Tray Or Small Bowl
- Lay out your clean hand towel on the counter and gently brush the bristles of your body brush against the dry towel, removing any accumulated dry/dead skin particles. Set to the side.
- Grab your towel tray or bowl and fill it 1/3 of the way with lukewarm water. You want to be able to place your body brush (bristles facing down) in the bowl of water and wet only the bristles, not the wood.
- Add 3-4 drops of the tea tree essential and liquid soap. Use your fingertips to mix the solution.
- Place the body brush in the bowl, bristles facing downward, and begin to move the brush in circular motions in the water for about one minute.
- Shake out any excess water from the body brush and allow it to air dry indoors by placing it on top of a clean towel with the bristles facing upward. Do not directly wet the tool & avoid wetting the wooden part.
It is important to clean your body brush regularly to keep your body free of bacteria & dead skin cells. We recommend cleaning it twice weekly if you use it daily. Body brushes are meant to be replaced once or twice a year.
* Disclaimer - Do not directly wet the tool.
