Happy 4/20! This cannabis-inspired holiday is a reminder to take breaks, chill out, and nurture yourself with self care and ritual.
Today we are launching our latest green queen. Our Emerald CBD Cleansing Soap Bar is here! CBD is a powerful compound that helps to reduce visible signs of stress in more ways than one.
Frequent and thorough hand washing can easily cause the skin to become overly dry and inflamed. This luxurious soap bar is perfect for cleansing while helping to reduce the look of redness and other signs of skin distress.
Snag your own Emerald CBD Cleansing Soap Bar and celebrate with another act of self love. Imagine and indulge in the below ritual fit for an emerald goddess, complete with a calm-inducing facial rolling meditation and our fan-favorite Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil.
Set the stage.
Green your setting. If you have a comfy piece of furniture like a green velvet couch, or a green pillow or blanket, use those items to plush your ritual space. Add green crystals or decor items if you’ve got them to add heart-healing verde vibes. Surround yourself with green plants and give them some water. Wear green garments if you have them.
Connect to nature. Speaking of green settings, consider performing your facial rolling ritual in a natural setting. Whether it’s your backyard or a public place (so long as your city allows park access and/or there’s plenty of room for social distancing), exposure to nature (especially green hues) helps tremendously in caring for the eyes and psyche.
Cleanse and tone the skin. If you haven’t yet received your Emerald CBD Cleansing Bar, use another gentle cleanser like our Blue Clay Cleansing Bar. Follow with a refreshing spritz of our Jasmine Green Tea Balancing Toner to help refine the pores and prep the skin for moisturizing and facial rolling.
Perform your facial ritual.
Apply a few drops of Emerald CBD Face Oil. Drop a few drops of this calming face oil into the palm of your hand, rub your hands together briefly and gently, and “press” the oil into the T-zone, cheeks, and neck.
Relax with your facial roller. You can also add drops of your Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil to your Jade Facial Roller. Meditate on the color green while nourishing your spirit with the heart-healing energy of Jade. Begin by positioning the roller at the third eye area and use very gentle pressure to move fluid from the face to the lymph nodes. Here’s an in-depth look and instructions for facial rolling for those new to this detoxifying practice.
Meditate on the color green. Green is associated with the heart. The hue both stimulates and soothes the heart, and including this hue in your life and meditation practice promotes balance and a healthy outlook. This meditation video was crafted specifically to go with facial rolling. Listen while also imagining beautiful emerald colors in your mind’s eye.
