100% NATURAL AGATE STONE - EACH STONE IS TRULY ONE OF A KIND.
Essentialit's custom shaped gua sha tools cut from genuine agate are as stunning as they are functional. Gua sha is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine technique and is one of the most simple and effective self-care practices you can learn.
Benefits of regular use include: improved circulation, lymphatic drainage, enhanced skin tone and elasticity, reduced appearance of expression lines and wrinkles, easing tension and stress, as well as preventing or clearing breakouts. SHAPE WAVY: The waved edged tool has been designed to caress the face and neck and is ideal for gentle lymphatic drainage work. The shape makes it easy to hold and a larger surface area makes it perfect for body work on the shoulders, arms, legs, and back. This tool is great for those who are discovering gua sha as there are no complicated maneuvers necessary for optimal utilization.
NOTE: Due to natural variations in stone, every gua sha is unique in pattern and color. Simply choose the gua sha tool of your choice through the drop-down menu. As soon as a stone is sold out, it won't come back in the exact same look.
Start by generously misting toner or essence onto a freshly washed face. Follow with 3-5 drops of a Facial Oil and apply all over your face and neck. The key is to create a surface that your tool will glide across- never practice on dry skin. Take this time to set the tone for your ritual with some deep cleansing breaths. If you're familiar with gua sha continue your practice as you normally would.
- Start with a clean face and prep skin with a facial oil or serum. - Keep the tool flat against the face and begin with the forehead. Scrape in an upwards motion from the eyebrows to the hairline. - Move to the cheeks and scrape in an outwards motion starting from the crease of the nose until the ear. - Move to the jawline and use the end of the gua sha tool with the two curves. Start from the chin and scrape until the ear. Gently massage the gua sha tool into the ear to release tension. - For the under-eye area, very gently scrape the gua sha from the inner corner of the eye outwards to the temple. Because the area is so sensitive, it is important to only apply light pressure.
