Pure protection for your skin. Obsidian is a grounding pitch-black volcanic rock with protective and purifying qualities.
Obsidian is great for stressed and overstimulated skin types and is the to-go anti-stress rock for busy city life. If your skin needs some extra protection from pollution and stimulants, then this is the rock for you.
Please note that all crystals are unique and therefore there will be variations in color, shape, structure, surface, etc.
Lymphatic drainage and relaxation of facial muscles.
This Gua Sha is designed for lymphatic drainage, relaxation of tense facial muscles and for stimulating facial acupressure points for increasing flow and energy to the skin.

WHEN NOT TO GUA SHA
Gua Sha massage is not ideal when you have:
- Infected skin
- Damaged skin
- Skin cancer
- Swollen lymph nodes
If you are in doubt, always ask your doctor. Use with caution if you are taking blood thinning medication. If you have any type of blood disorders, or have extra sensitive skin due to illness and medicine, talk your doctor first.
CAN I USE MY GUA SHA WHILE I'M PREGNANT?
It is safe to perform Gua Sha massage on your face while pregnant, but ask your doctor first before doing Gua Sha on your body, as this treatment is detoxifying.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY GUA SHA?
You should wash your Gua Sha with soap and water after each use.
Crystals absorb energy, so we also recommend cleaning your Gua Sha crystal energetically with sea salt baths. Fill a bowl with 1.25 cups of water and 1 tbs sea salt. Place the Gua Sha in the bowl and let it be there for up to 24 hours. If you have more than one Gua Sha crystal to clean, clean them separately, not in the same salt bath.
The metal on the glow rollers doesn't tolerate salt water, so to energy cleanse the glow rollers place them on a bed of dry sea salt for up to 24 hours.
HOW DO I RECHARGE MY CRYSTALS?
You can place your crystal Gua Sha tools in the windowsill during a full moon to charge them. You can also hold your Gua Sha in your left hand and place your right hand above the crystal and set a healing intention from your hand to the crystal, mentally reciting the properties you would like from it. Remember energy flows where intention goes.
HOW OFTEN CAN I USE MY GUA SHA?
There are no rules, but for visible results, we recommend you start by doing Gua Sha 5 times a week. Once you have your desired results you can maintain them by doing Gua Sha 3 times a week or as needed.
DO I NEED TO USE ANY SPECIFIC PRODUCTS WITH MY GUA SHA?
It's important you use an oil appropriate for your skin type or a balm that will provide glide for the Gua Sha tool.
WHICH CRYSTAL SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Choose the crystal that you feel intuitively attracted to or use the crystal descriptions for guidance.
