Global Beauty Ritual
This beauty + wellness ritual has been practiced for centuries in cultures all across the world from the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Chinese, Japanese and even in Scandinavia. But dry brushing’s rich history is deeply rooted in India’s most ancient holistic healing system, Ayurveda. Known as Garshana, this traditional detoxification ritual is practiced to support the removal of stagnant waste (also known as ama) from the body to promote optimal vitality and longevity.

- Use light, gentle pressure starting on the neck and moving up the face from the midline out towards your hairline.
- Dry brush once daily on dry skin (don’t use with water or product).
- Brush in the morning after splashing skin with water (and patting dry) to depuff + brighten skin, then follow with toner and serum/cream.
- Brush upwards with gentle, short strokes towards your heart.
- Always use light pressure – the point isn’t to scrub off your skin, but to gently, effectively get blood and lymphatic fluid moving!/li>

Frequently Asked Questions
How should I clean my brush?
Depending on how often you’re dry brushing, we typically recommend washing your brush weekly with a gentle, non-toxic soap (like our seasonal Hand Soap or Branch Basics) and letting it dry with the bristles down so water doesn’t seep into the wooden handle.
Cleaning Tip: If you’re on the go or your brush needs a refresh in between washes, spritz bristles with our Hand Sanitizer.
Can I use the same brush for face and body?
For the sake of your skin, please don’t! This is why we offer two different dry brushes - one with softer 100% goat hair bristles for delicate facial skin and the other with more firm boar bristles for the body.
Their different sizes have also been specifically crafted to support smaller areas of the face + neck and larger areas on the body like the arms and legs. For best results from head to toe, incorporate both dry brushes for face + body into your beauty ritual.
