    Can you explain what “immune showering’ is?

  • Ruta Aldonyte

    I have learned about immune shower from Kurt Schnaubelt ( It is simple and very rewarding procedure. Shortly, while still wet (no toweling) after showering in the morning, you drop 5-10 drops of your favorite oil or blend into your palms and apply it directly onto wet skin starting from the lower part of your body. You start gliding your palms behind the knees, then through inguinal zones, solar plexus, via underarms and reach your neck and behind the ears (I also apply palms to the face). You can also massage some areas for longer time. It is important that skin is wet. It takes a minute or two. Then you stand for few more minutes (breathing :)). Oil makes a thin layer on your wet skin and emulsifies into it (and evaporates at the same time). After that you can use your towel to dry more completely and start your day. Be careful to choose safe oils and start with few drops.
