Ionic Body Brush
We are excited to introduce our new second generation ionic body brush with slightly longer bristles for an even more luxurious dry brushing experience!
Dry brushing has incredible health benefits and is widely recommended by health experts. Dry brushing detoxifies the body, improves circulation, exfoliates the skin, improves skin tone, aids digestion, reduces and prevents cellulite, and increases energy and well-being.
The health benefits of dry brushing are greatly enhanced through the use of an ionic body brush, which has its origin in ancient Ayurvedic practices. Our ionic body brushes feature extra-fine ion-charged copper bristles made from a high-quality alloy of copper and zinc, which naturally create negative ions that protect your body from free radicals and have numerous other health benefits. In addition, the molecular composition of our unique bristles encourages the direct and immediate absorption of negative ions into your skin, which greatly increases the benefits of dry brushing.
In addition to the health benefits, this ionic body brush (also commonly known as an ‘energy brush’ or a ‘copper wool brush’) is also a beautiful work of art. Each brush is handmade from the highest-quality and sustainably-harvested beechwood, which is then beautifully smoothed and finished with natural wax. Our ion-charged copper bristles are made from the highest-quality copper alloy. In addition, our brushes feature an outer ring of bristles made from beautiful all-natural and ethically-sourced boar hair.

How to Use
Our brushes are designed to be used without water, soap, or oil. We recommend using your ionic dry brush on a daily basis in order to detoxify the body, eliminate dead skin cells, stimulate the lymph nodes, aid digestion, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. If you are new to dry brushing or have sensitive skin, you can start dry brushing once a week and work your way up to every 2-3 days depending how sensitive your skin is. You should also listen to your body and can adjust your dry brushing frequency as needed.
We recommend brushing rhythmically and with light, smooth, and gentle strokes. Make sure to adjust the speed and pressure in order to match the sensitivity of your skin. Start by brushing the soles of your feet and then work your way up and inward.
We also recommend brushing with long, straight strokes in the direction of the heart. This is the direction in which lymph flows in your body, so brushing in this direction (as opposed to brushing in a circular motion or away from your heart) will have the most beneficial effect on your lymphatic system, which is responsible for detoxifying your body. In addition, brushing in this direction will help stimulate the nervous system and increase your blood circulation.
After brushing, take a shower or bath to ensure that dead skin and toxins are washed away.
*Please note that if you have a skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or extra-sensitive skin, the ionic body brush may not be for you. Dry brushing of any kind is often too abrasive for these skin types and conditions.
