How to Clean Your Dry Brush
In a previous post I talked about the many advantages to dry brushing, from a stronger immune system to glowing skin and more. Well, as you can imagine, using that dry brush every day can lead to a lot of built up dirt and toxins on the dry brush itself! Here is a quick and easy way to clean your dry brush using tea tree or lavender essential oils.
- Fill a bowl with warm water, just high enough to cover the bristles of your brush when face down in the bowl. (You don’t want to have the wooden handle soaking in water at all).
- Add 2-3 drops of lavender and/or tea tree oil to the water, depending what you have on hand.
- Put the bristles face down in the water and swish it around a bit. The oils do not mix into the water well so the swishing is essential.
- Finally, leave it face up in the sun to dry!
See? Easy. I recommend rinsing the brush with just water daily after use. But this more thorough cleaning can be done once a week or once every two weeks to make sure you are getting the maximum benefits of dry brushing. Taking good care of your brush also means you won’t have to replace it for quite some time.
