Amethyst Gua Sha

The History of Gua Sha

Gua Sha facial technique dates back centuries ago to ancient China and was used as a healing technique for stagnant energy (“chi”) in the body. It was believed that when “chi” is stagnant, it causes inflammation and that leads to various conditions and chronic pain. By rubbing the skin’s surface with Gua Sha, the stagnant energy is broken up, promoting healing.

Practitioners also use Gua Sha to stimulate specific acupressure points to increase the blood and energy flow to the face and improve lymphatic drainage.

Centuries later, the world rediscovered the Gua Sha and crystal rollers like the amethyst roller. Health-conscious celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston, and Elle Macpherson embraced them fully and touting their benefits got their fans and beauty brands to do the same.

Amethyst benefits

Amethyst is one of the most attractive crystals in the world. Today amethyst is often used in meditation as it increases concentration, relieves stress and strain, soothes irritability, balances mood swings, dispels anger, rage, fear and anxiety.

Amethyst was considered one of the five precious stones together with diamond, emerald, sapphire, and ruby until very recently.

Amethyst was also believed to be a strong stone of protection and was carried as amulets to protect from injury.

About the Amethyst Gua Sha

Amethyst Gua Sha is a perfect way to combine the effects of a Gua Sha and amethyst crystal.

As you gently massage and scrape the skin, you are getting into a meditative state, and amethyst plays a part in promoting clarity and relaxation.

Amethyst Gua Sha calms inflammation and redness, nourishes skin cells and encourages regeneration.

Amethyst is also believed to help draw out toxins and free radicals, detoxifying skin, preventing bacteria growth and tightening pores.

How to use the Amethyst Gua Sha

The great thing about Gua Sha is that you see the effects almost immediately.

Gua Sha combines short and long strokes across the face to stimulate the lymph nodes under the skin surface as well as lymphatic flow and drainage.

In the beginning, use amethyst Gua Sha once or twice a week to assess your skin’s tolerance; later, you can do it almost every day if needed.


  1. Every time before starting with Gua Sha, apply the green tea oil to your face
  2. Forehead: Keep Gua Sha flat and scrape with an upwards and outwards motion from the eyebrows to the hairline.
  3. Cheeks: Scrape in an outwards motion starting from the crease of the nose towards the ear.
  4. Jawline: begin at the chin and scrape towards the ear.
  5. Under-eye area: move from the inner corner of the eye outwards to the temple. Be gentle as under-eye skin is very soft.

Amethyst Roller and Gua Sha Combination

Often the best results are achieved when using amethyst Gua Sha together with your amethyst roller. Amethyst roller is very easy to use and significantly impacts your facial tissues, lymph and blood. The rolling open up pathways improve lymphatic flow and reduce puffiness and inflammation.

Amethyst roller reduces puffiness of the face, relieves facial tension, boosts circulation, and promotes lymphatic drainage, resulting in beautiful and glowy skin.

Use your amethyst roller at room temperature, or if you like the cool feeling, you can keep it in the fridge. Use light pressure on your face, neck and chest. Spend more time on the areas that feel more tension, like the jaw or between your eyes.

The larger end of the amethyst roller is better for larger surfaces like cheeks and forehead and the smaller end for delicate areas like the upper lip, chin, under eyes.
