The amazing thing about Yogandha Oils is that they work on a very physical level through the base oils and the specially created essential oil blends. But the essential oils are also working through the olfactory system and the brain. They have an actual mental or emotional effect too.
Detox contains essential oils to detox (no surprise there) but did you know that they do this by specifically supporting our kidneys and digestive system? Detox also stimulates the lymphatic system. It's refreshing and invigorating for mind and body.
Using Detox is perfect to not only detox our body but at the same time create the mindset for letting go and creating healthy habits. We call this Intention-based Aromatherapy. Here's how you can use in your day to get these mind-body detox benefits:
5 ways you can use Detox
1 Instead of a body lotion
Apply directly onto the skin. These oils are formulated to be applied directly on the skin and are wonderful as a cleaner alternative to body lotion. It's as natural as can be: a blend of base oils and essential oils - nothing else.
Squirt out some of your Detox Oil and massage it onto your whole body.
The aromatherapy blend is perfect to both detox but also to moisture and balance the skin. Coconut oil is rich in many proteins that help to keep skin healthy and rejuvenated internally and externally. Unlike many other oils, it works long after it is applied. Grapeseed oil is an all natural moisturiser rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatories – perfect for treating acne and tightening skin. Vitamin E oil promotes healing and is deeply nourishing to the skin.
2 As an actual detox
Detox is perfect to use before and after a night out or if you feel you are a bit sluggish. Simply apply before going out to give the liver and kidneys a boost. Concentrate on the abdomen and massage in a clockwise direction to help bowel movements if you are constipated and release any wind.
- Refreshing lemongrass stimulates the kidneys and is thought to help lower cholesterol.
- Cleansing juniper berry purifies and detoxes the body.
- Sweet fennel is a great digestive – so will ease tummies after eating.
3 In the shower
Yes, you can use oil in the shower! The oil will trap the water and pull into the skin to deeply hydrate. And it will refresh and invigorate you at the same time.
4 Dry skin brushing
Squirt Detox onto your dry skin brush. This way you will enjoy the benefits of dry skin brushing with the added benefits of the essential oils for a detox. Both are brilliant for the lymphatic system and to support a detox.
5 Make a body scrub
Make your own detoxing, purifying body scrub which also benefits your lymphatic system. Get out some salt or sugar. Put a big handful into a cup and mix it with your Detox Oil. This is such a natural way to exfoliate. No plastic beads just salt or sugar which will dissolve in water once washed off and the nourishing oils and essential oils.
