My daughter, Annalise Hiley, ran an HTMA test on me and the results showed that I would benefit from some intentional physical detoxing. She recommended a few supplements (most of which were sitting in my cabinet but I had not been taking 🥴) along with dry brushing, and sitting in the sauna. 

I'm already very active, so I didn't need to ADD exercise. I do that daily. I simply don't sweat very easily and the results showed in my HTMA. 
Anyway, I've been dry brushing regularly and I LOVE IT!! below are the instructions on how to do it!

Dry brushing is a simple practice, but doing it correctly can maximize its benefits and minimize any potential irritation. Here’s a step-by-step guide to dry brushing:

Materials Needed:

  • A natural-bristle brush with a long handle (to reach your back).
  • (optional) Cel-lite massage oil to increase the effectiveness of the dry brushing. This massage oil has cypress for circulation, juniper for both cleansing and muscle strength and citrus oils for cleansing the receptor cites of cells.


Choose the Right Time: Dry brushing is typically done before showering. I personally do it in the steam room and or sauna.
Start at Your Feet: Begin with the soles of your feet. Use firm, small strokes upward or make circular motions.
Move Upward: Continue brushing up your legs with long, smooth strokes. Always brush towards your heart, which is the direction of lymphatic flow.
Brush Your Torso: After your legs, move to your midsection. For your stomach, use circular, clockwise motions. Brush your back in long, upward strokes.
Arms and Hands: Move to your hands and brush upward towards your shoulders. Again, use long strokes and always brush towards the heart.
Neck and Chest: For the chest and neck, use softer, lighter strokes as the skin in these areas is more sensitive.
Avoid Sensitive Areas: Don’t brush over cuts, infections, rashes, or any areas with broken skin. Be gentle on softer areas like the breasts and inner thighs.
Shower: After brushing, shower to wash away the dead skin cells that have been loosened.
Moisturize: Apply a natural oil or your favorite moisturizer to nourish your skin after dry brushing.


  • Brush Gently: The pressure should be firm but not painful. Avoid scrubbing too hard.
  • Frequency: Start with once a week and gradually increase to 2-3 times per week if your skin tolerates it well.
  • Clean Your Brush: Regularly wash your brush with soap and water to keep it clean.
Dry brushing should feel invigorating but not uncomfortable. If you experience any irritation, reduce the frequency or pressure, and always follow up with plenty of water, add a pinch of gray or pink salt for hydration and after your shower re-apply the cel-lite massage oil! to re-moisturize the skin.
