One of the most frequent questions I get asked is: How should I clean my dry brushes??
I’ve experimented with several methods and show my favorite 3 here. You can do any of these three, or combine them for extra powerful cleansing.
If you are wondering how often you should clean your dry brushing tools, my answer is, it depends.
People are all across the board on this, from not cleaning very often (like me) and cleaning after every single use. I recommend doing what feels right for you. And a moderate, reasonable guideline might be once a month.
Which leads me to my next point.
While there are several ways to clean your dry brush tools, the most important thing to remember is to use gentle, yet effective, cleaning agents. This will allow you to clean your brushes a lot if you want with minimum breakdown of material and a chemical-free dry brush experience.
Finally, if you use essential oils, I can’t stress how important it is to use actual, REAL essential oils.
There is no regulation about using the term “essential oil.” Therefore, an essential oil is purely a marketing term (and can be used to describe and market any substance a business wants to sell as essential oil.
Most oils nowadays are perfumes made in labs. If they happen to have any real oil in them, they’re often adulterated with scent and other chemical agents that affect efficacy.
Processing methods are another big point in efficacy.
There’s really no point in using an essential oil to clean your tools if they’re unable to actually work as a real cleansing and disinfecting agent!
I recommend doTerra essential oils and believe they’re the most effective on the market. My family and I have literally healed so many health conditions with them, when nothing else would actually work. I thought they were pseudoscience at first but I was desperate to heal some things so I tried them anyway. I know they work.
If you don’t know how an essential oil can help you, just look at CBD oil. It’s hemp essential oil. Along with hemp, there are many, many other oils that are just as healing. And word is getting around!
doTerra is pricy – you really get what you pay for. Of course, you can choose another company you like better. There are certainly other good ones, too!
