How to Clean Your TEK Brush!

November 13, 2018


Wondering how to care for your beloved TEK brush?

Most of us use our hair brushes on a daily basis to distribute the natural oils in our hair and to detangle knots. But our hair brushes are also great at trapping lint, dead skin cells, and dirt from daily hair brushing routines!

Cleaning your brush regularly is important so that you’re not redistributing unwanted waste from your brush onto your hair.

Here’s how to clean your TEK brush in 4 easy steps!

You’ll need:

  1. Your TEK wooden brush
  2. 5 drops of Calia Tea Tree Oil
  3. 1 cup of clean cold water
  4. A fine comb OR brush cleaner
  5. An old toothbrush
    1. Remove the hair from your brush bristles
    Using the fine comb or brush cleaner, catch the hair in the comb and pull it up the sides of the brush. Remove all the loose hair collected, curl into a ball, and toss it out. 

    2. Clean your brush
    Add the tea tree oil to a small cup of water. Apply the mixture to the bristles using the toothbrush and scrub the bristles in an upward motion. After cleaning the bristles, apply the mixture to the rubber cushion and scrub off any lint and dirt.

    3. Rinse your brush

    Rinse your brush by spritzing a bit of water from a spray bottle instead of soaking.

    4. Dry your brush

    Lay your TEK brush on a clean towel, pin side down, and leave undisturbed until it's fully dry. Your brush is now clean and ready to work it's magic!

    A New Calia in Review!

    October 21, 2018


    Hello Calia Community!

    We are excited to share a new review from our customer Mehak! 

    'I ordered a bunch of stuff from Calia. I love love love love your Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Conditioner! I am going to get those big jugs next time 
    because this stuff is GOOD. It cleans well and to be honest, I have tried many conditioners. In the last 5 years, I have not been using any conditioner as my hair would fall so much... but this conditioner is the best and I no longer have this problem! My dad loves the Sea Buckthorn Face Cream and Moisturizing Lotion. Thanks for making something that is natural and that really works!

    Here are three of our latest favourites; thank you to customers Andriana, Karie, and Lauren! 

    'This is the best shampoo and conditioner I have ever used... I needed a shampoo that helps maintain the natural acidity of my scalp because my hair is wavy/curly and the Balancing Conditioner is amazing for that! The other Hydrating Shampoo is also perfect. Thanks!

    ~ Andriana Velounias'

    'I will never shop another site again! Now that they have the loyalty program, it makes it even better! My hair is growing like a weed.

    ~ Karie Ann Aylesworth'

    'This stuff completely changed my hair and scalp. I have no itchiness or flaking at all and my curls look better than ever. I use the Purifying for Normal Hair Shampoo, Purifying for Dry Hair Conditioner and Purifying Leave-in. THE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER IS THE KEY. DO NOT SKIP IT!

    Getting a FREE Orange oil with your recent Calia purchase? We're so excited to share this amazing pure oil with you! From now until August 31st, get a FREE Calia Sweet Orange Oil with every order over $30. 

    Here are our top 5 uses for this amazing oil! 

    1. Boost your mood! 

    No one likes feeling anxious or worse, depressed; this is where Calia Sweet Orange Oil really shines!

    Pure Orange Essential oil has anti-depressive and anxiolytic properties that act as an instant pick-me-up. Pure Orange Essential Oil is also widely used as an aphrodisiac, as it's fresh, invigorating scent is a known stimulant.

    Use: Add 5-6 drops in water in a diffuser on very low heat, and enjoy! Experience your mood lifting and the worries falling away! Alternatively, add two drops of Calia Sweet Orange Oil onto the palm of one hand, and then rub your palms together to distribute the oil. Hold the hands close to your face and inhale deeply.


    Note: Citrus oils are not generally recommended for topical use because they cause photo-toxicity on exposure to sunlight. Sweet orange oil is relatively milder, displaying no toxicity after 12 hours of application. However, use it topically in minimal amounts, preferably in the evening. 

    2. Energy Boosting! 

    Use our Calia Sweet Orange Oil to combat the stress of mental or physical fatigue! Even better, we love to mix it with lavender oil for even more energizing qualities. This mixture is one of our favourites! 

    Use: Combine five drops each of Calia Sweet Orange oil and Calia Lavender oil and use the mixture in a diffuser with water. Or, a drop of the mixture rubbed into your temples or wrists will also do the trick. 

    3. Fight Acne

    Calia Sweet Orange Oil has a drying and grease-cutting effect on the skin that can help reduce acne in people with oily skin. This skin trick can work wonders on your complexion.

    Use: Add 2-3 drops of orange oil to a cup of water and wash the face with it before going to bed.

    4. Cleanse the Skin: 

    Calia Sweet Orange Oil acts as a deep cleanser when used with a light carrier oil like Sweet Almond Oil. 

    Use: Mix 3-4 drops of Calia Sweet Orange Oil to a tablespoon of any Calia carrier oil and apply on the face with a cotton pad. Allow to remain for 5 minutes and then wipe. 

    5. Ease Digestive Troubles 

    Yes! What can't this oil do? Sweet Orange oil can improve digestion and help the fight against gas. 

    Use: Add 5-6 drops of Calia Sweet Orange Oil in a diffuser with water. Relax and let your tummy troubles slip away.
