Strategy: Regularly (1-3 times per week) massage three key lymph areas with our Herbal Body Oil, prior to shower. A warm/hot shower after massaging will help the skin to absorb the benefits of the oil and the massage, in turn aiding your lymph system's detox function. 3 areas of focus, for an easy, DIY approach:
1) The sides of the neck, starting from behind the ear, down to the clavicles
2) Inner thigh where it meets the groin
3) Under the armpits and the breast/chest area
Results: Doing this a few times a week, even when you have only a short amount of time to do self-care, promotes detoxification, relieves sluggishness, energizes and assists in balancing the mind, emotions, endocrine system and healthy metabolism.
Work in circular and kneading motions, spending a few minutes or more in each area. We recommend our Herbal Body Oils, as they have been designed specifically to benefit the body in such ways. Sesame oil, the base of these oils, is particularly effective in reaching the deeper tissues of the body, enhanced by the therapeutic potency of a multi-month herbal infusion and expertly blended essential oils. Consider Gentle Detox, Chamomile Calm or Calendula Care for your regular lymph massage. It's a routine you'll come to appreciate as life enhancing and health promoting, with tangible benefits for body, mind, spirit and beauty. And, you'll find this self care time an easy way to relax, knowing you are caring for your health AND beauty, at the same time!
Ps-Many people are familiar with the role of the lymph system in promoting detox. This system is actually a bit more complex, and impacts the healthy functioning of your entire body, including appearance of aging, endocrine function and the immune system's strength, all of which are aided by detoxification as one component.
