How to Roll with your Gemstone Roller

There are two different ways to use the roller. One is in a gentle downward movement. This is detoxifying and stimulates lymphatic drainage. The second, is in a more vigorous and rejuvenating upward movement. This stimulates circulation and oxygenates the skin. If you're confused, watch the video a clearer explanation.

Apply a serum or mask all over face and decolletage.

DETOXIFYING FACIAL ROLLING HOW TO (best practices from The Organic Esthetician):

  • Start at the base of your neck. Gently roll in a downward motion from ear to clavicle. Repeat 3x then move to the next section, working across your neck from the ear to the center line.
  • Move to the center of your chin. Roll out from the center towards the hair line. At the end of your third pass toward the hairline, drain the lymph by rolling down the side of the face toward the clavicle once. Continue this pattern, rolling horizontally across the face 3x then draining once down perpendicular to your previous movement, as you work your way up the face.
  • At the under eye, use the small end of the roller. Roll 3x from the nose toward the end of the brow. On the last roll, finish by drawing down the side of the face to the clavicle. Repeat these movements just under the eyebrow.
  • Lastly, gently roll from the center of the forehead toward the side of the face 3x, draining down to the clavicle on the last pass. Repeat this moving up the forehead.
  • To finish, repeat your last draining movement 2-3x more.
  • Repeat on other side.

You'll notice a constant need to swallow. This is very normal during lymphatic drainage and a good indicator you're doing it correctly.


  • Start at the neck. Roll from base of neck to jaw line in an upward roll. Your pressure should be medium to firm. When you get to the jaw, give a little flick. Repeat this 5-10x as needed, then move to the next section. Repeat till you've reached the center of your neck.
  • Next, roll from the chin to your ear just under your jaw line, chiseling definition at the jaw. Repeat 5-10x.
  • Move up to the center of your chin, rolling from chin to ear in a slightly upward angle. Repeat 5-10x. Repeat 
  • these movements working up the face, finishing under the eye.
  • Now, move to the forehead. Roll from your brow toward your hairline in a vertical upward movement. Repeat 5-10x. Repeat these movements working across the forehead.
  • Repeat on other side.

Wipe your face clean followed by a serum or moisturizer. If you started with serum or moisturizer, the product has been pushed deeply into your skin during rolling. Slather on some more.

one! You can roll every day but we recommend doing this three or four times a week.

Jade Eye Mask & Rose Quartz Eye Mask

Now that you're excited about facial massage rollers, I'm going to blow your mind. Jade Masks. The same magical benefits of jade have been intricately woven into a delicately cooling mask for your tired eyes. 

The coolness and weight of the jade helps relieve sinus issues, closes pores and reduces puffiness and wrinkles. Jade remains cold while in contact with the skin and this helps to close the pores and tighten the skin. Also a good use for meditation, the jade helps calm the soul and brings about deep relaxation and tranquility.

Using a Jade Eye Mask regularly will soon leave your face feeling firmer, smoother and looking clearer, while also working wonders for under-eye puffiness and dark circles.

  • Soothes and relaxes facial muscles and skin
  • Eliminates congestion and reduces inflammation
  • improve blood circulation and skin tone
  • improve elasticity of the skin
  • promote lymphatic drainage
  • reduce puffiness and wrinkles
  • reduce dark under eye circles
  • eliminating toxins

The stone is naturally cool to the touch. However, putting the mask in the fridge before use will make it an extra nice treat. The Chi Jade Mask can also be used warm by simply soaking it in hot water for a few minutes. Make sure the mask is dry and not too hot for the skin before laying over the face. Whether hot or cool, feel the tensions fall away, lines soften and soul rejuvenated.

How to use: 

After using your serum of choice and/or jade roller, lay the cool mask over eyes while feeling tension dissolve. Leave on as long as you wish. Turn the mask upside down and lay over the mouth and jaw area to soothe lines and tension around these pent up areas.

So I know you're waiting for me to tell you which roller is better and the answer is... 

It's a personal preference. Choose the roller you are most drawn to, or which qualities you feel would benefit you personally. Just be sure to purchase genuine Jade or Rose Quartz. Some of the cheaper rollers found on websites like amazon or ebay can be dyed glass or made from flimsy glued metal. 

A genuine, high quality Jade roller will retail for $30+ and a genuine Rose Quartz Roller retails for $45+. A Nephrite Jade or Jadeite Jade Roller will go for around $85-$95

What we call jade is actually two different minerals. There is huge confusion about the types of jade, about which colors are most valuable and the grading standards. Most "jade" rollers which you see on the market are not confirmed as genuine because Chinese manufacturers use the term "jade" so loosely.

There are just two different types of what we refer to as true, genuine and authentic "Jade":

JADEITE jade and NEPHRITE jade. The two have different chemical compositions, hardness, densities, and crystal structures.

Jadeite Jade is rarer and ranges widely in color from white, brown, lavender, black and grey. Translucent emerald green jadeite is the most prized. Jadeite is mainly mined in Burma, southeast Asia.

Premium Nephrite Jade Roller

Nephrite Jade ranges in color from greenish to brown, whitish and black. Nephrite jade is mainly sourced from Taiwan
