Fresh Body Oil and Body Brush Set
Gentle brushing on the skin's surface boosts your energy and stimulates the lymphatic system. Dry brushing increases circulation, sweeps away dead skin cells, eliminate toxins, and promotes healthy cell renewal. It stimulates circulation and can help break down fatty deposits and the appearance of cellulite.
A gentle massage on the skin with a natural fiber brush working towards your heart helps wake up a sluggish lymphatic system, which removes cellular waste. Do this before the shower, and then follow with our Fresh Body Oil to gain the most benefit.
The brushes we use are completely natural, which includes a natural wood handle and a boar bristle with plant based fibers. We avoid all synthetic materials as they can have a tendency to irritate the skin. Many also believe that the natural bristles are friendlier for the surface and will distribute the natural oils on the skin better than a synthetic or plastic material, which can cause skin reactions because of the synthetic polymers in the bristles. Overall, our skin tends to be much happier with these types of brushes.
As with all of our ingredients, we prefer the natural solutions rather than the synthetic options, and it's evident that our bodies and skin would agree. Dry brushing is an ancient way of caring for the body by helping the skin to eliminate toxins. This type of brush has been used in a similar form for generations. When something works... there's just no need to waiver from it.
Brush dimensions: approximately 10" long, 3" wide, and 1.5" high.
About our Fresh Body Oil:
Introducing: Oil Brushing (Yes!!)
You've heard of dry brushing and its many benefits. Not only does it increase circulation, but also gives a sluggish lymphatic system a nudge to rid itself of toxins, and even improve muscle tone.
I've been using dry brushes for years. BUT, truth be told, I don't always like to brush my skin while it's dry. I'm a regular brusher, but like to do it under running water, then follow it with a small amount of Fresh Body Oil as a cleansing and finishing oil to sweep away dead cells and soften.
Well! Well! Well! Since summer, I've switched it up and, frankly, I don't know why we haven't started this sooner!
We're calling it "Oil Brushing." What is oil brushing? While under the warm, running water, apply a partial pump on the top half of the body, including the elbows. Do the same on the lower part including the heels, knees, and backs of thighs. Then... gently circle your 'wet' brush over the oil directly onto the skin. The difference in skin texture and softness is amazing. I've been using this oil for shaving, after dry brushing, and for massage. Now, because of its light and stimulating formula, it's the perfect way to oil brush the skin.
By stimulating the blood flow to the skin, either by exercise or by exfoliation, it helps to keep the skin cells healthy and vibrant. Our face benefits from exfoliating. Look how much skin is on the rest of our body that needs attention?! Blood delivers oxygen and nutrients to healthy cells, and this includes the skin. Blood flow also helps to detoxify the skin by carrying away free radicals and waste products from the cells.
We're firm believers of exfoliating the skin on a regular basis. Why should our faces and necks have all the fun?! Our bodies deserve it, too, and not just on special occasions during a scheduled massage or facial. And... the skin on our backs is often neglected. Not any more. :)
The natural emollients in the grape, olive and sunflower oils, combined with anti-inflammatory soothing essential oils of mint, raspberry, rosemary and jasmine, make this fresh body oil a multi-purpose, daily companion.
Once you’ve experienced the way this fresh oil works with your skin to firm and hydrate naturally, and when you feel your razor gliding over your skin leaving it soft and soothed, you’ll wonder why you’ve ever used anything else.

Start in a small, circular motion at the feet and work up towards the neck and heart. Work in circles in one direction over the abdomen, and circle around the breast area.
Follow with a shower to wash away the impurities and dead skin cells. Using our Fresh Body Oil as a follow-up to hydrate and tone will naturally soften and leave the skin glowing.
