The Magical, Skin-Clearing Stroke
Today’s stroke is simple, but powerful, and requires very little time. Start with your Empress Ritual, as always.
— 1 — Position the stone so the U Edge hugs the space around the ear.
— 2 — Pull down with medium pressure about an inch.
— 3 — Repeat 10 times, and on the last stroke pull it all the way down.
You can also work just the neck and use this stroke to keep lymph moving and support breakout-prone skin.
Post Your Experience
According to some sources, we have between 500 to 800 lymph nodes in the body.
Our co-founder Jill, also an herbalist, recommends brewing this tea to sip while you’re doing gua sha. Tulsi, one of the main ingredients, is a gentle, supportive adaptogen that boosts several body systems. It especially supports the body through detox.
“I have this gorgeous set from Wildling that features the brand’s luxe Empress Tonic, Empress Oil, and seriously gorgeous custom crafted Bian stone. When used in tandem as a trio, I see a significant difference in toning and de-bloating as compared to the rose quartz roller I had been using.”
