Take Dry Brushing To the Next Level
Experience the health benefits of a Prana ionic body brush
Dry brushing has long been recognized as a beneficial health practice, and its benefits are enhanced through the use of an ionic body brush, which has its origin in ancient Ayurvedic practices. These unique brushes are made with extra-fine ion-charged copper bristles, which naturally create negative ions (created by the friction between the copper bristles and the skin) that help protect the body from free radicals. Using an ionic dry brush also stimulates natural lymph flow, which helps make the lymphatic system more effective at purging toxins and pathogens from the body. For a luxurious experience, brush skin twice a week using light strokes towards the heart before bathing.
Dabble & Dollop’s mixable bath products which are made in the USA, safe for all ages including babies/infants, and feature clean ingredients. This holiday season, Dabble & Dollop is offering a few limited-edition holiday products for Christmas, Hannukah and Kwanza.
“Dabble & Dollop is the only mixable children’s bath brand – we allow children a safe opportunity to mix scents and textures together to create their own unique concoctions,” explains brand Founder & CEO Stephanie Leshney. “For example, children can take a dabble (pump) of Strawberry and a dollop (pump) of Vanilla and make a strawberry shortcake bath. Or, a dabble of Tangerine and a Dabble of Lemon for a Citrus Body Wash.”
There are three opportunities for children to customize – the creation of the bubble bath, the body wash and the shampoo.
“Though the mixing process may seem simple, to a child it is pure magic! They love to ‘innovate’ and create new textures and scents,” Stephanie adds. “We love to inspire creativity and a love of science.”
