I've been making Body Polish for decades, watched thousands of people amazed by the expereince of Body Polish as they rub thier hands.
I have finally discovered the reason why it feels so darn good!
Today's world is inundated with positive ions. They enter our bodies imperceptibly, until we land in the bummer zone, fatigued, and emotionally raw. Positive ions are contributed by fluorescent lighting, televisions, air conditioners and microwave ovens pollution, smoke, and unshielded electronic devices of all kinds. Our office and schools and homes are suddenly crackling with positive ions. It is not surprising that the mental health of humanity is being challenged during this pandemic. Add fear to positive ions, let if drag on for months, you have a recipe for chronic systemic stress.
Studies show that negative ions boost your seratonin levels, and give your body a general feeling of well being. Research supports the view that negative ions have a net positive effect on health, including improved mood, stabilized catecholamine regulation and circadian rhythm, enhanced recovery from physical exertion and protection from positive ion-related stress and exhaustion disorders. Negative ions can be added to the body by earthing, forest bathing, waterfall splashing, showering or dry polishing. It's why we take hikes and walk on beaches, because it feels good. Negative ions are a big reason for the feeling.
Enter Body Polish, crystalline salt generously produces negative ions, when held upon the surface of the skin for a spell, 3 minutes or longer, you allow the process of Saltatory Conduction to deliver negative ions across the skin's barrier to the nerve endings. You can feel it when you eave the salt on the surface for a long enought time for your body to download sufficient negative ions to shift your seratonin. It's a palpable mood shift, reboot of your vibe.
Here's my protocol for the Body Polish Power Shower
I turn on the shower and get it at the perfect temperature. Then I turn it off and step inside. I grab a good handful of Body Polish and smooth it over my entire body. Then (and here's where the magic really happens) I pause for a spell.
I close my eyes and breathe deep. I take in all the essential oil goodness and let the stress of whatever in the the world is weighing on me and let it all melt away. I really take my time here. I usually allow the salt to remain on the surface of the skin, for at least 7 minutes, if I've go the time, much longer.
Sometimes I even sit down in the shower and meditate for a while. Our formula is so nourishing, so balanced, that I never feel itchy or uncomfortable letting my skin breathe with the salt, I simply feel "held".
After I feel harmonized into peace when I feel good and ready, I will turn on the water and let the flow of warmth wash it all away.
Trust me on this one. You're just going to want to try this method next time you shower. In fact, Try it and let me know how it goes! How did it feel? Did you come away with any realizations? Any "Aha's" or "Eureka's"? Sometimes I do my very best thinking and reflecting during this meditative time.
Let me know in the comments how it goes for YOU.
