Recently, Merrit Malouf Plumb and I got the chance to sit down with Jennifer Eddinger to talk about Ayurveda, the Water Element, and a little bit about skin care. Here’s a link to that discussion.
The Kansa Wand contains bronze, a copper alloy that has been used in Ayurveda for centuries. Some people call Bronze the “healing metal” because of its ability to “conduct” energy. (some people claim it can help to balance your chakras.) From a purely physical standpoint, the massage from your Kansa wand helps to stimulate blood flow, plump up your skin, and therefore reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and of course, decrease the puffiness around your eyes. (which is basically the biggest reason I wanted to use it.) Another cool thing about using the Kansa wand? When you first start, it’s cool because it’s a metal, and the air temperature is cooler than your skin temp, so it’s basically like rubbing oiled icepacks on your tired eyes.
Combining the use of the amazing Kansa wand with this new product we have in the studio, Kesaradi oil by iYura, you get the benefits of the massage waking up your skin combined with a signature blend of ayurvedic balancing and brightening oils.
The Kesaradi oil smells heavenly. It contains Saffron, Tumeric, Rose, Vetiver and more in a sesame oil base. A little bit goes a LONG way. The instructions actually say 3-5 drops, but I end up almost tripling that each time I use it, opting to put 3-5 drops on the top of my Kansa wand and then massaging my face in circular motions, starting with my forehead. I work my way down, usually on my left side because I’m left handed, and I spend plenty of time around my tired eyes (because I’m willing to try anything at this point to not look so darn tired!)
After just one use, you’re gonna notice that your skin is soft, but not greasy. (well, it’ll be greasy if you go overboard with the lotion, but 3-5 drops per section seem to do my skin perfectly.) I definitely feel like the oil keeps my skin soft and protected from the colder air that we’ve been experiencing lately and the smell is divine.
I honestly can’t say if I look “years” younger or not, but I do love the smell and feel of this product and I highly recommend it. If the least you get is a great facial massage and well moisturized face, you’re doing good, right? The oil didn’t cause my skin to break out, even using sesame which can be a heavier oil. I can’t say enough about how much I love my new skin oil, and I think you will too!
If you want to learn more about the Kesaradi oil, definitely come by the studio, or check it out online. (this is an affiliate link.) I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how much you like this natural skincare product, and I think you may get hooked just like I did! If you want to know more about the Kansa wand, leave me a note, I may write a post just for you! If you have a Kansa wand, what do you think of it? Have you used it to rub your feet, your neck, or your arms? (I love that actually.)
