3 Unexpected Benefits of Dry Brushing

  • ✨ 01. Getting to spend time with yourself.
  • 🌸 02. Learning to love your body without judging or criticizing it.
  • 💖 03. Holding space for yourself to “come as you are.”

True wellness lights you up & heals your soul.

So even something like dry brushing is an opportunity for you to spend time with yourself.

When I dry brush, I like to whisper kind + loving things to myself like, “I’m so proud of you” and “I love my body for all it can do” and ”I love who I am & who I’m becoming” ✨

It’s a moment for me to slow down and appreciate my body, even when I struggle to love the reflection I see in the mirror.


Go slow. Be gentle with yourself! The goal with dry brushing is to stimulate your lymph nodes/lymphatic system, which sits just beneath your skin. You only need a light, gentle touch to activate it!! What a beautiful reminder that we can be gentle with ourselves 🥹 Just touching and tapping your skin provides beautiful benefits for your lymphatic system. Your own touch is soooo powerful. You slowing down and spending time with yourself is such a beautiful opportunity to heal the relationship you have with yourself. You are the powerful piece of this puzzle. Not the dry brush!!

Dry Brush TIP #2

Wash your dry brush once a week! I use BranchBasics soap. I’ll soak the bristles of the dry brush. Rub it around a little. Then let it dry with the bristles down.
