The Glasshouse Gua Sha is made of high quality natural black obsidian, shaped to perfectly fit to the contours and pressure points of your face. Black obsidian arises from volcanic lava and is used in naturopathy to promote blood circulation, relieve tension and blockages, and strengthen connective tissue. 

Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese massage technique which has been used for centuries to form a mindful skincare ritual, helping to improve lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and aid in the removal of toxins. It can be used daily to create a ritual of calm and inner peace as part of your usual skincare routine.

Each Gua Sha stone is made in Eastern Asia. Shape and colour may differ very slightly from the picture shown here. Each arrives in a 100% cotton Glasshouse canvas pouch.

After cleansing, warm a few drops of facial oil in the hands and apply to the neck and face in upward circles. Working with the Gua Sha in the same hand as the side of the face, beginning at the centre, use the tool flat against the skin and apply gentle pressure outwards towards the ear. Repeat these motions across the forehead, under the eyes, from the nose across the cheekbones, and along the chin and jawline. Finish by smoothing from behind the ear and draining down the neck.

As this technique aids circulation, you may notice a warmth and redness in your face, but at no point should this be uncomfortable. Avoid any spots or areas of broken skin and simply work around these.

Your tool can be cleaned with soap and water after use.
