Some dry body brushing benefits include:
Our Ayurvedic dry-brushing Garshana Dry Body Brush not only feels great but also helps the body rid itself of cellular waste. Garshana directly translates to “friction by rubbing” in Sanskrit, so we thought the name was totally fitting. Give yourself a rubdown to experience the combination of a soothing massage and thorough exfoliation.
Do you suffer from fatigue, sluggishness, experience physical or mental dullness, constipation, or a taxed immune system? Some visible signs can be your legs and arms can get puffy, and you may find blemishes on the top of your arms and cellulite on your legs as a result.
Dry brushing with our bamboo and sisal brush, will help energise the body, increase circulation and blood flow, and stimulate drainage and detoxification from the lymphatic system to smooth skin's surface.
The skin is the largest organ of the body and also the largest organ of elimination so it makes total sense to utilise it as part of our detoxification process. Removing toxins through the skin helps reduce them having to pass through vital inner organs e.g. The Kidneys. (Almost a third of your bodies waste’s can be eliminated through the skin). This gets slower as we get older and dead skin cells build up leaving our skin looking sluggish, dull and rough.
Did you know your skin replaces itself every 35 days so that’s almost a new you every month! Imagine the build up if you don’t remove these dead cells! Regular use of our Garshana Dry Body Brush will assist this process and leave your skin soft and smooth.

How to use
The ideal time to dry brush is in the morning before you shower, so that you can rinse off the impurities loosened by the massage.
Dry skin body brushing needn’t take long, 5 minutes 2-3 times per week is all that is required. The pressure should be a light yet firm brush upwards towards the heart (downwards from the shoulders). Starting at the feet sweep the brush upward followed by a sweep with your other hand (be gentle at first until your skin gets used to it) work the abdomen in circular clockwise movements and then do the arms, shoulders and back (do not use on the face). You may notice the odd blemish occurring due to the elimination process at the beginning. After your shower do not completely towel dry but allow the moisture to be retained on the skin and seal it with Black Chicken Remedies Love Your Body Oil, packed full of nutrients that treat your soul and pamper your senses.
Dedicate at least three to five minutes to brushing.
