Mookaite Jasper Gua Sha Tool // A patented design by Cecily Braden. This tool allows you the ability to target extremely specific skincare concerns that most at-home tools do not. Cultivated and hand carved from mines in Western Australia and Mexico, Mookaite Jasper was chosen for its ability to help celebrate self-acceptance and shift your perspective about the aging process. Remnants of the stone are re-purposed to minimize waste. Each tool is hand carved and completely unique. Because of the stone’s natural color and pattern variation, the tool(s) you receive may be a solid color, gradient, or marbled esthetic.

Neroli Clarifying Toner Travel Size (1 fl oz)// Formulated with antioxidant-rich botanicals like Green Tea, Thyme and Willowbark to clear congested skin, even the complexion, and protect skin from damaging environmental stress. Please visit this page to learn more!

Night Regenerative Balm (.25 oz)// A cocktail of high nutrient oils and butters that work in sync to provide deep hydration, soothe and repair. Powerful antioxidants help protect your skin and can improve elasticity. Please visit this page to learn more!

Access to our Gua Sha Educational Library // With the purchase of each kit, you will gain access to an exclusive online educational video library. We provide you with all of the materials you need to maximize the benefits of your gua sha tool, including how to properly use the tool, the Apoterra Lymphatic sequence and the Apoterra Protocol, which were both developed by Cecily Braden, advanced technique to target specific concerns, and essential information about the practice of facial Gua Sha.

Exclusive Apoterra Bag // This environmentally-friendly bag designed in-house holds “the kit” together. Not available for individual purchase. Made from 100% Organic Cotton + Fair Trade Certified.

Protective Travel Pouch for Gua Sha Tool // Each tool lives in a protective black felt pouch made from recycled plastic. With a simple snap, this pouch safely stores your tool so you can have it on hand wherever you are!

Apoterra Gua Sha Tool Booklet // You’ll receive a printed step-by-step guide to the Lymphatic Sequence created by Cecily Braden, a detailed map of your tool, along with essential information about the background and benefits of facial Gua Sha. Printed on 100% recycled PCW paper
Create Glide

Dress in comfortable clothing, perhaps your favorite silk set or robe, ensuring your neck and decollete are exposed. Secure any loose hair away from your face. Then you are ready to begin prepping your skin to create glide. This is essential to prevent tugging.

It’s ideal to begin with clean skin. If time allows, start by cleansing with your favorite Apoterra cleanser. Follow by liberally misting your face and neck with the Neroli Clarifying Toner. Take a moment to breathe in it’s aromatic hydrosol notes. With your skin still damp, scoop a pea-sized amount of the Night Regenerative Balm. Work the balm into your skin until it feels protected by a luscious layer of nutrient-rich oils. You’ll know you’ve applied enough balm once your fingers can easily slide across your skin’s surface without tugging.

Gift yourself a Facial Massage

Once your skin is prepped, gift your skin a gua sha facial massage. Always starting with the neck, gently massage your skin using the gua sha tool following Cecily Braden’s Apoterra Lymphatic Sequence instructions. If you are ready, follow with any of the advanced Apoterra Gua Sha Protocol techniques or safely explore the many curves and angles of this patented tool with guidance provided in our online educational library.

Short on Time?

Busy? Bring this kit with you on the go. The lymphatic sequence takes 3 minutes and can fit into the busiest of schedules - practice it in the office, in the car or even on a flight! Aim to do the full lymphatic sequence 1x per day although just doing the neck portion is enough to see benefits. Fit in advanced moves when you can once the lymphatic sequence has been completed.

How to clean your tool

After each use, clean your tool either with your Apoterra soap and water or a cleansing mist.

Pro Tip: We recommend incorporating this ritual into your morning skincare routine, but you can practice this ritual at any time of day. Begin your journey by practicing the lymphatic sequence on a daily basis to improve the delivery of nutrients and the removal of waste. Once you are ready to incorporate more advanced techniques such as the Apoterra Gua Sha protocol, you can add these advanced movements in addition to the lymphatic sequence, although they do not need to be practiced immediately one after the other. It is important to practice the lymphatic sequence first and often for optimal benefits. (Both technique and more can be found in our gua sha educational library)
The Tool // The patented Apoterra x Cecily Braden Gua Sha Tool is a unique collaboration between Cecily Braden, founder of CJB Beauty Secrets and Dominique Caron, Apoterra founder, certified aromatherapist and herbalist. Together they envisioned an advanced tool that would bridge professional techniques with an at-home ritual to address various skin concerns holistically and naturally. The future of skin care is not altering the skin by using fillers and overly potent ingredients, which cause stagnation and damage. Instead it is a focus on improving skin health and healthy aging which improves skin radiance and appearance. The tool, combined with Cecily's teachings and Apoterra's holistic skincare formulations, provide all one needs to achieve optimal results.

Why Gua Sha? // Not into fillers or injectables? Us either! Enter into the practice of Gua Sha. While synthetic injectables freeze facial muscles, Gua Sha encourages just the opposite; life and movement. A consistent practice overtime can result in an overall more lifted and toned appearance. Additional benefits include cleared congestion, a glowing complexion, and increased lymph and blood flow leading to improved skin health.

Why Cecily chose these products // Our Neroli Clarifying Toner calms and clarifies, while our Night Regenerative Balm soothes and deeply hydrates. Together, they deliver a complete array of nourishment to skin, formulated without drying alcohols and synthetic ingredients present in most moisturizers. Prepping your skin with these products creates the perfect glide on skin to reduce tugging and facilitate smooth strokes, maximizing the tool’s benefits.

Our teachers // We give honorable credit to the various established teachings which informed this collaboration. They include Cecily’s Gua Sha Facial Fusion method that traces back to knowledge of the Dr. Vodder technique of manual lymph drainage (MLD) and Traditional Asian Medicine and Dominique’s aromatherapy learnings taught by Andrea Butje as well as her western and eastern herbalism training which began with Ursula Basch and evolved with the help of many other teachers throughout the years.
Our Mookaite Jasper is sourced from mines in Western Australia and Mexico that re-purpose all remnants to minimize waste.
