The herbally infused oil is a rich but lightweight blend that glides extremely well across the skin to ensure no tugging or pulling.It's also not overly greasy, which would make the Gua Sha slippery to hold.
How to Use
For two types of Facial Gua Sha Massage:
Warm up the Gua Sha by soaking it for 10-20 seconds in hot water (not boiling, approx. 116F or 45-48C). Do not microwave as Obsidian is a volcanic glass with extreme heat retention properties. Dry quickly after taking it out.
Apply the Herbal Youth facial oil by smoothing it over areas for massage. 5-6 drops would be enough for the face. The oil is perfect for use with gua shas because it glides well while firming and toning the look of skin.
Follow the diagram above. The scraping motion releases tension in the muscles of the face and promotes blood circulation by stimulating different lymphatic drainage points. Scrap until you feel the muscle tension loosen and that the jawline is visibly less puffy.
Why is the Herbal Youth Oil the best fit for Gua Sha?
What about my neck area?
Use the combed edge of the Gua Sha to lightly pull up and downwards on the sides of the neck, avoiding the voice box area. Do not use too much force and remain as gentle as possible as the throat area is more fragile.
What if I live in a very dry climate? Is the oil enough?
Yes, however feel free to add more oil.
Is this product safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
Yes! Gua Sha is fine for pregnant women as long as it's gentle and focused on the face, neck and shoulders. Do not use Gua Sha on the feet or hands as it is believed that feet/hand reflexology can be overstimulating.
