Lymph Compound is a concentrated herbal skin supplement crafted to clear and contour the skin of the face and neck. Therapeutic, whole plant extracts of conifer trees and vibrant organic herbs activate the pathways of movement and detoxification within the inner waters of our cells and tissues. As interstitial fluids are liberated from the burden of stagnancy and metabolic waste, the skin becomes clear and vibrant and the natural contours of the face reveal themselves.

KEY ACTIONS:

  • lifts and sculpts facial contours
  • clarifies, clears, and decongests
  • reduces fluid retention and waste burden

CONVENTIONAL COMPARISON: There is no conventional comparison to this product, because the role of the lymphatic system is under-valued in western and conventional care. Lymph Compound supports the vital role our lymphatic system plays in optimal skin health and vibrant aging. Read more about the connection between lymph + skin in Laurel’s Journal.

THE POTENT PLANTS WITHIN
A combination of stimulating shrubs and conifers White Pine, Juniper and Rosemary improve circulation and fluid movement with the presence of rosmarinic acid, terpenes, and shikimic acid. Gentle, lymph-loving herbs Red Clover and Fennel activate detoxification pathways and improve the quality of elastin with nutrients like magnesium, quercetin, and isoflavones. Polysaccharide-rich Bladderwrack Seaweed and mineral-dense Sea Salt bring in the rhythm of the ocean and inspire movement beneath the skin, releasing stagnation and stuck fascia. The aromatics of Rosemary center this formula, assisting in the release of muscle tension and gently encouraging us to let go of what no longer serves us.

LAUREL SKIN COMPOUNDS
A first-of-its-kind category, Laurel Skin Compounds are herbalist-created skin supplements; carefully formulated to replace lab-made synthetic options with a whole-plant alternative.  Used by the drop to complement our Hydrating Elixirs, each concentrated plant medicine blend targets specific skin concerns and supports symptoms of imbalance as they arise, allowing for even more customization in your Laurel Skin Ritual.

Rosemary – One of the most-researched herbal medicines in existence, it is no surprise that Rosemary is the foundation of this formula. This biodynamically farmed shrub improves cellular response to inflammation, increasing strength and resilience. Abundant in rosmarinic acid, it facilitates fluid thinning to release stagnation and blockages beneath the skin. Rich in minerals, antioxidants and unsolic acid that boost the skin’s production of natural ceramides and collagen type 1, firming the skin and connective tissue. This therapeutic evergreen has balancing effects on the pituitary gland and nervous system, easing muscle tension and releasing the grip of an overactive mind.

Clover – This nourishing purple blossom is filled with isoflavones which are shown to firm and strengthen the skin. A cleansing lymph-mover, known as an ‘herbal alterative’, to assist our cells in the efficient management of metabolic waste through the appropriate pathways. An abundance of minerals like magnesium and vitamins like niacinamide, make Red Clover a soothing herb suitable for most skin types.

Juniper – A precious shrub that is dear to my heart, bringing life to seemingly barren desert landscapes. This desert conifer is a common decongestant, with the ability to thin fluids, reduce inflammation and increase circulation. This stimulating lymphatic ally warms our tissues and promotes the movement of both blood and interstitial fluid. Juniper’s leaves and berries provide nutrients like vitamin E, carotenoids and flavonoids that strengthen and brighten the skin.

White Pine – This long needle conifer is a profound healer that grows abundantly throughout the US. Healing pine resins have been used by herbalists for centuries to rapidly reduce inflammation, balance microbial loads, and stimulate cellular repair. Modern research has shown that shikimic acid, a natural AHA found in White Pine, is an effective skin decongestant and lymph-thinning mover. Pine terpenes have a relaxing effect on the body and speak directly to our lymphocytes and immune system, encouraging self-regulation in the same way forest bathing eases our anxieties.

Fennel – This resilient weed is loaded with collagen-protective antioxidants like ferulic acid and caffeic acid. Its anti-inflammatory effects come from its abundance of quercetin and apigenin. Fennel supports the way tissues and cells respond to toxins and waste build-up, supporting the body through blockages and stagnation by preventing lipid oxidation and protecting cellular DNA from damage.

Bladderwrack – Intensely hydrating and rich in vitamin B and polysaccharides, this beautiful seaweed excels at rehydrating and soothing the skin. High in fucoidan, a phytonutrient shown to increase collagen synthesis, to firm, strengthen and rebuild the skin. Adding seaweed and sea salt into this formula was an intentional choice to bring in the energy of water, promoting ease of movement through fascia and interstitial fluid that lies just beneath the skin.

My Own Lymphatic Journey

Facial edema is quite a challenge. It is something I have dealt with for over a decade, due to multiple health concerns. I have watched as my lymph has gotten backed up and my interstitial fluid burdened with metabolic waste from my over-active immune system. This has caused bouts of acne, hyperpigmentation and inflammation – all because what lies under the surface of my skin is akin to stagnant, slow-draining bathwater.

So much of what I have learned about the importance of supporting my lymph and fascia came from master lymph esthetician, Angela Peck. My skin glows from that lymph movement support when I’m able to receive it. Unfortunately, I can’t get lymphatic and fascia-supportive facials all the time, and that’s where the Lymph Compound comes in.

Everyone’s use of this product (and all our Herbal Compounds) may look slightly different, as we are each on our own unique health journeys. My application begins with 1 drop at the top of my hairline and follow that down to my temples and jawline and behind my ears. These are areas that hold a lot of tension and stagnation for me. Then I add another 2 drops to apply to the front and back of my neck, and down my chest.

The combination of our Lymph Compound with facials that include lymphatic work and fascia support has helped me a great deal. While I still manage hyperpigmentation and facial edema due to my health concerns – and may, in fact, have to manage those symptoms forever – this formula continues to help a great deal; eliminating acne, unburdening my skin, and reducing fluid stagnation by leaps and bounds from where I began.

This is my own personal journey with this product. The words I share here on Laurel Skin and about our products are not intended to prevent, cure, or diagnose disease.
Love, Laurel
