If we’ve learned anything from the success of our Rose Quartz Crystal Contour Gua Sha, it’s that the intersection of vibrational energy and skincare is the future of green beauty. This month we are introducing two new stones, Blue Sodalite and Green Aventurine –– each with a special vibrational energy, so you can manifest your best vibe and glow.
INSPIRATION BEHIND IT: Our Crystal Contour Gua Sha is inspired by Gua Sha therapy, an energy treatment of traditional Chinese medicine. Odacité adapts this Gua Sha technique for the face, in order to massage the muscular fascia* (for a lifting effect) and the lymphatic system (for a detoxifying effect). *The fascia is a fibro-elastic membrane that covers the muscles and is composed of connective tissue rich in collagen fibers.
CREATING A BEAUTY TOOL: To create the Crystal Contour Gua Sha, we hand carve each stone to specific angles, thickness and roundness to adapt precisely to the morphology of the face, offering a powerful, aesthetic treatment.
Le Crystal Contour Gua Sha easily gets into the corners and follows the contours of the face, encouraging an intuitive flow to provide an effective facial treatment.
ANCIENT RITUAL FOR THE MODERN LIVING: The ancient Gua Sha technique is the perfect ritual for the modern woman/man. Let’s face it, the modern era is equivalent to less time, more stress, pollution, extended hours in front of screens, and feeling excessively tired... so we need a fast, effective way to restore the glow and relieve the signs of stress and fatigue. Gua Sha is a deep tissue version of the face roller, and will help recharge your skin with exceptional energy in no time.
HOW TO GUA SHA: In order to create an effective Gua Sha treatment, gently glide the stone across your face, never pulling on the skin. To create a perfect glide, use the Crystal Contour Gua Sha with our All-Embracing Serum, infused with Oatmeal to give it a silky-soft feel in which le Gua Sha slides perfectly… You can customize the All-Embracing Serum with any of our targeted Serum Concentrates to target specific skin concerns.
ADD HEAT & COLD: To enhance the benefits of your Gua Sha tool, add warm and cold temperatures to your treatment. Start with the warm Gua Sha – place your stone in warm water for a few minutes – this will help open your pores and ensure the products seep deeply into the skin.
Finish off with a cold Gua Sha – let the stone sit in ice water for a few minutes to seal in all the beautiful nutrients of your products. You can also place your Gua Sha in the fridge overnight to energize & de-puff your face the next morning. This is especially beneficial around the delicate eye area and a total savior after a night out.
USE IT ON YOUR BODY: The Gua Sha tool is also effective to help release body tension, particularly on the neck and shoulders. Simply apply All-Embracing Serum and glide the stone over the tensed area, applying appropriate pressure.
PICK YOUR CRYSTAL: Crystals have been used for centuries to manifest intention, call on spiritual protection and energy healing. Pick the Crystal Contour Gua Sha stone that resonates with you and what you want to bring more into your life… or get all of them... to manifest more harmony, prosperity and unconditional love! Both your energy and skin will thank you! 😍
