Black Obsidian Gua Sha
The Gua Sha is an essential part of your beauty ritual, this sculpting tool is used to improve the skin's firmness and enhance the performance of facial oils/serums absorption while stimulating collagen production for firmer skin. Black Obsidian is known as the 'Truth Stone" purging negative thoughts and emotions. Believed to provide powerful mental detoxification that shields and protects against negativity allowing the bearer to release disharmony, resentment and anger.
Regular use of the Gua Sha will improve skin elasticity and skin smoothness while reducing muscle tension. Black Obsidian is forged from the force of hot volcanic lava submerged in the sea. A solid smooth black stone is said to be a type of volcanic glass.
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese practice of scraping the skin with a Gua Sha Tool to improve energy flow and blood circulation. In Chinese, “gua” means “to scrape” and “sha” loosely translates to “sand” and refers to the rough, sand-like rash and bruises created by the traditional treatment method. However, the modern application is gentler and also balancing of chakra with the use of a crystal stone.
This ancient technique has experienced a revival as an amazingly effective Facial & Body sculpting method of using a crystal Gua Sha sculpting tool to improve the smoothness and firmness of the skin by using firm long strokes for several minutes.
Most practitioners agree that consistent use of the tool helps improve microcirculation, skin toning and smoothness. The Gua Sha massage is a great treatment for breaking down fat deposits as it works to improve circulation. Gua sha effectively works at increasing blood flow beneath the skin.
*We recommend using a facial oil, to begin with, this will aid absorption and enhance the effects of your serum or oil.

The smoothness of the edges is the primary function of the Gua Sha we inspect each stone to ensure the edge is not rough or sharp.
