Dry Brush

Made from compostable materials, this dry brush is great for stimulating circulation of the lymphatic system and removing dead skin.

Our lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump in our body unlike the heart for our circulatory system. The transportation of lymph relies on muscle contraction, physical activity, and the valves that prevent the lymph fluid from flowing back. Body brushing helps this process.

What are the origins of dry-brushing?

Body brushing is an ancient practice hailing from Ancient Greece, to the Americas, the Middle and Far East, and especially as part of the Indian traditional Ayurvedic treatment, called Garshana. Ayurveda is a 5,000 year-old Hindu traditional holistic medicine. The exfoliation and massage techniques of body brushing have barely changed throughout time. The benefits, such as improved circulation and lymphatic drainage, exfoliation of dead skin cells etc., have been constant.

Body brushing practice is such a simple and easy routine, and also very rewarding. It only takes around 3-5 minutes of your time, preferably in the morning, as body brushing helps increase circulation and boosts energy which leaves your skin feeling fresh, invigorated and your whole body enlivened.

How to dry brush

Start at your feet. Use short or long strokes toward your heart and lymph nodes, located in the groin. Continue upwards towards your hips, belly, moving towards the heart and the lymph nodes in your neck. For your arms, start at your palms and stroke towards the lymph nodes in your armpits. 

After brushing, wash off dead skin in a shower or bath with a soothing smooth soap like love or naked. Afterwards, apply a rich hydrating body oil and indulge in a glass of water.

If you don't have time for the full process, try out our scrubby soaps like Mo'jo or Wisconsin for similar lymphatic stimulation with your daily soapy ritual.

Works well, just like liquid shampoo

I started using shampoo in bar form mostly because it's something new. It lathers up and rinses out easily, leaving my hair squeaky clean.
My hair and scalp seem much the same as they did after using my longtime shampoo of Giovanni's Tea Tree Triple Treat. Shampoo in a bar will be especially good for travel as there's no worries about it spilling in your bag or being affected by airport TSA liquid restrictions.

Wonderful Purchase

After I saw a friend post about how much she loves this soap I figured I would give it a shot since I always am looking for shampoo bars. It has not disappointed. Not only did it smell amazing with it came but there were a few other little samples in there too which was a really nice touch. Being a first-time customer I really appreciated that. The lovely presentation as well. The product itself is also very high quality and I will be purchasing again. Please note the shipping might take a little bit right now but it was worth the wait. Thank you!

Nicole,

We are so glad you tried our soaps! We so appreciate you being a customer.

Take care,
Laura

Amazing!

I have incredibly dry skin. It is so terrible. I have tried so many different facial oils to remedy the dryness, and this is my far the best I’ve ever used. When I put it on I feel like my face thirst is being quenched. It really is a miracle product!

Don't let a facial oil scare you

I have oily skin, with dry spots in the winter (classic combo skin), and have such a hard time finding a moisturizer that works for me. When I came across the facial oil, I figured there was no way this would ever be for me. But after reading Laura's description of it, I REALLY wanted to try it! So, I took a leap of faith, and I am so glad I did!! This oil is fantastic. It does not make my face feel oily, it has greatly helped my winter dry spots, and has a very nice, very subtle scent. Don't be afraid, try it!!

Great !

This lotion has such an amazing smell! I love it :).
