The Empress Ritual System

Practicing the facial gua sha Empress Ritual will clear, smooth, plump, tighten, and rejuvenate skin while reducing under-eye circles and puffiness.

Stage 1

STEP ONE:
Empress Sweet Fern Hydrasoothe Face Mist

Hydrate


After cleansing, the Empress Sweet Fern Hydrasoothe Face Mist primes skin to absorb face oil. It's an essential step in activating the skin, preparing it for gua sha, and maximizing results. Plant wanters from nutrient-dense sweet fern, damask rose, and Douglas fir stimulate detoxification, promote lymphatic drainage, and hydrate to amplify your gua sha practice.

Stage 2

STEP TWO:
Empress Balm of Gilead Barrier Repair Oil

Activate


This powerful whole plant oil infusion elevates your gua sha ritual by boosting circulation, plumping, and toning the skin. Balm of Gilead and our Resin Nutrient Complex nourish skin and can help stimulate lymphatic flow. Using the Empress Balm of Gilead Barrier Repair Oil in tandem with the Tonic and Stone is what makes our ritual—and results—different from the rest.

Stage 3

STEP THREE:
EMPRESS PLATINUM

Lift & Tone


A multi-action tool custom crafted from cooling stainless steel massages our whole plant actives into the skin while manipulating the tissues of the face more precisely than hands alone.

Delivery Process

GUA SHA METHOD

The facial gua sha method works by releasing tension in the muscles of the face, smoothing out the fascia, and circulating blood and lymph through the tissues.

It also delivers whole plant actives from our products into the deeper layers of the skin for increased absorption and effectiveness. The result is deeply hydrated, plump, toned, and sculpted skin with a radiant glow.

FAQs

The Empress Ritual is helpful for clearing breakout prone skin, however you should not gua sha over active breakouts. The skin care products work well for breakout prone skin. To learn more click here.

The strokes should be gentle on the face, especially around the eyes. Think of how gently you would frost a cake — it doesn't take a lot of pressure to get great results. In fact, when moving lymph, it’s important to use light pressure. (Read more about lymph drainage on our blog.)

Clean your stone prior to each use with warm water and a skin-friendly cleanser or soap. We recommend storing it in the Empress Pouch as they are relatively fragile. Even diamonds can break when dropped!

For best results, practice at least 3 times per week. Daily use is encouraged, but not more than once per day.
