We can hardly keep the vetiver bundles on our shelves, so we thought it a good time to share more about these bundles and why we love them here at DANO.

The bundles are made up of Sacred Hawaiian Vetiver Roots and are a great alternative to sage for smoke cleansing your spaces. Smoke cleansing is simply the act of removing unwanted energies from a person, place or object. The smoke helps to remove the bonds that hold the energy in place and allowing that energy to shift into something neutral. The smell of the burned vetiver provides a lovely grounding experience. Helping to calm and soothe your energy, the vetiver root smoke feels your space with a sweet, woodsy, scent.

Beyond the magical scent of the bundles, the farm which grows the vetiver in Hawaii uses the vetiver for slop stabilization and erosion control on the cliff sides. The mature vetiver roots grow very deep and have high tensile strength stabilizing cliff sides creating an economical bio-engineering alternative to steel and concrete. Vetiver is scientifically proven to remove heavy metals and antibiotics in soil, and to clean waste water by reducing nitrate and phosphate levels.

To burn: ignite the roots, blow out, and let the smoke fill your space.

Vetiver bundles available here at the shop.

Dry Brushing- A Ritual For Self

CAE1AC6D-9399-448A-88B1-AB2D8AE77BEF.JPEG

The practice of dry brushing is a simple yet very effective self care ritual one can add into their daily routine. The benefits of dry brushing your skin are invaluable. Your skin, the largest organ in the human body, is an organ of elimination. One third of your body’s toxins are excreted through the skin and dry brushing helps to unclog pores and excrete toxins that become trapped in the skin. Dry brushing stimulates your lymphatic system, which helps remove toxins from the body. We remove dead skin by dry brushing which creates smoother and softer skin. Dry brushing all helps to reduce cellulite by breaking down the toxic materials that are stored in fat cells. These toxins are released then our bodies eliminate them through our usual elimination channels. Dry brushing also unclogs pores and decongest the skin helping our skin absorb more nutrients.

To do it yourself, start with a good quality dry brush like the ones we have here at DANO. Start at your feet and brush upward toward the heart. Similarly, when you start on your arms, begin at the hands and work upward toward the heart. Use firm, small strokes upward, or work in a circular motion. For the stomach area, work in a clockwise direction. Be sure not to press too hard or use a brush that’s too stiff. The skin should never be scratched or damaged when dry brushing, therefore make sure your brushes bristles are comfortable and gentle on the skin.

The best time to dry brush is in the morning before a shower. Dedicate at least three to five minutes to brushing just before you shower to get the full energizing benefits.
