Herbalist's Beauty Guide for 2022

by Lauren Ernst


Botanical oils are the perfect companion for facial massage.

Not only do the plant oils provide amazing replenishing and skin-soothing benefits. Plant oils also create a much-needed slip that allows any tool you are using, like gua sha, to glide across the skin with ease.

I typically use single oils with facial massages for the best experience as this generally isn't the place for your active serums or heavily fragranced products.

My favorite facial massage routine requires just two products and whatever tool you like to use; gua sha, Kansa wand, or just your two hands!

Love, Lauren
