About the Ayurvedic Facial Rejuvenation Tool
This Ayurvedic facial rejuvenation tool is a powerful addition to your skin care ritual. It is an artisanal facial massage tool, sometimes called kansa, that is made from teak and a high quality bronze traditionally called the “Queen’s metal.” We proudly offer this superior grade tool that consists of a high density of bronze for advanced therapeutics and pronounced durability.
Bronze has many healing qualities that make it very effective for facial rejuvenation purposes. Often called the ‘healing metal,’ it first appeared about 5000 years ago and was created by a culture in the Indus Valley that contributed to the traditional medical system of Ayurveda.
When used for facial rejuvenation purposes, this bronze has powerful effects both for enhancing the health and beauty of the skin, and stimulating healing throughout the entire body. It releases tension in the face and naturally activates many important acupuncture and marma points to create a systemic stress-relieving and healing effect on the various bodily organ systems.

How To Use:
Best when used on a clean face. Cleanse face with your favorite cleanser or our Immortelle Cleansing Dew to remove all makeup and dirt. Create a water and oil mixture in the palm of your hand. For example, spray one of our hydrosols, Mist of Immortelle facial toner or misting potion in a cupped hand and add Radiant Rose Glow facial serum or another oil-based serum. Emulsify this combination the palm of your hand and gently pat onto your face. Next, use your Ayurvedic Facial Rejuvenation Tool to massage outward and upward in circular or arc motions. It’s important to not pull the skin. For best results use regularly; Sara Crow recommends at least once per day for several minutes. Enjoy!
On rare occasions, kansa may generate a dark residue on the skin. Simply wipe up with a warm wet washcloth. This isn't harmful and usually indicates some excessive acidity within the skin and/or acidity produced in combination with skin products. If this is problem for you, try using the facial tool with our jojoba oil on clean skin. This tends to eliminate excess acidity.
