How to body brush and why you should be doing it

Sisters Claire and Bec Jakstas are the founders behind Stass & Co, the plastic-free beauty brand committed to creating reusable products and to doing their part to heal the planet.

Both sisters are big on daily rituals, self-care and connection and their first product out of the traps is the all-natural, vegan-friendly, plastic-free and luxurious  Stass & Co The Body Brush, €31, which looks like it should be hanging virtuously in a Nordic spa or sauna.

So why a body brush? According to co-founder Bec Jakstas, "dry body brushing is an ancient beauty technique that promotes healthy, glowing skin." Body brushing is known for its benefits, such as stimulating the normal lymph flow - more on that below - and increases blood circulation within the body. While being vaguely aware that body brushing was full of benefits that I wasn't really certain of, the reason I enjoyed doing it anyway - aside for the soft skin - was that it not only feels really good, but it wakes your body up, invigorating every nerve ending while giving you a moment to check in with yourself. And in Bec Jakstas' words, "dry body brushing provides a daily opportunity for self-care, healing and meditation and results in spending a few moments every day to ground your intention back into your body, dramatically increasing your mind-body connection."

Hi,

I use Clarins Oil - see http://www.fight-cellulite.com/recommend ed-products/ for the name.

I blended Geranium oil and Jojoba oil, do I need to put water?

I read a lot about the essential oils, and I know jojoba would be the carrier, and geranium is a tonic which prevents or gets rid of cellulite and wrinkles and all (even though I hate the smell, if it works, who cares). Do I need to add distilled water,


1. The water can not be mixed with essential oils.
2. Dill oil is a useful and effective additive for cellulite.
3. Caster oil can be used as the carrier, with good effects on cellulite and improving the bowel movement if rubbed on


If you've already blended geranium with jojoba, then, no. You don't need to add water to it as well (water and oil don't mix that well). It's fine to use "as is" for something like a massage oil.

You can also mix geranium directly


1. The water can not be mixed with essential oils.
2. Dill oil is a useful and effective additive for cellulite.
3. Caster oil can be used as the carrier, with good effects on cellulite and improving the bowel movement if rubbed on
