Gua Sha - Empress Stone, large
The Empress Stone is a patented facial gua sha tool designed to sculpt and reinvigorate the skin. The Empress Stone is composed of Bian stone, an amalgamate of 40+ minerals known for their healing properties. Each edge of the tool is intentionally architected to enhance the practice of facial gua sha, which is a traditional Chinese beauty practice.
This stone has a beautiful weight to it and is ideal as an all over body self Gua Sha massage practice or to give to a loved one. Slow steady sweeps over areas of tension is incredible.
Known for its rejuvenating properties, Bian stone was created when a meteor struck a mountain in ancient China. It is said to emit ultrasound pulsations, far infrared rays, and negative ions as a result of the cosmic impact — all of which are known for their antioxidant and anti-aging effects on cells and DNA.
Facial Gua Sha is a beautiful way to care for yourself, create ritual within your day and a nurturing skin care treatment. Gua Sha is a simple technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine used to relieve blockages in the Meridian System creating a smooth flow of Qi (energy) throughout the body-mind.
How to use:
Cleanse your face and hands, spritz your face with water or use our fav Hanako Rose Face Mist, then use your favourite natural facial oil (Glow Face Oil or Illuminate are what I enjoy daily) and apply gently and generously to your face and neck. Using very gentle upward sweeping strokes to "scrape" the Gua Sha over the face. You may notice little red spots or patches occur on the skin this is normal. Drink a large glass of water afterwards.
