Sodalite Gua Sha Healing Benefits: I saw the light
Sodalite encourages being true to yourself and standing up for your beliefs.
“Sodalite brings order and calmness to the mind. It encourages rational thought, objectivity, truth and intuition, along with verbalization of feelings. Sodalite brings emotional balance and calms panic attacks. It enhances self-esteem, self-acceptance and self-trust.
Sodalite balances the metabolism, boosts the immune system and overcomes calcium deficiencies. It combats radiation damage by soaking up electromagnetic smog. Sodalite treats the throat, vocal cords, larynx and helps with hoarseness and digestive disorders. It cools fevers, lowers blood pressure and stimulates the absorption of body fluids. Sodalite can also help to prevent insomnia.” — Charms of Light

About Sodalite Gua Sha
Gua sha on your face needs to be with light pressure with a face oil, you do not need a lot of face oil as it is important to have some grip on the skin. If you have tension and stress in your jaw or at the back of your neck, then it is ok to use a firmer pressure in these areas, but you need to build up, start with a light pressure and then gradually go deeper. It is important to be sensible with pressure and to not hurt yourself, always feel comfortable, gua sha on your face is a pleasurable experience not painful.
Use a gliding motion against your skin, hold the sodalite gua sha at a 30-degree angle, and use the flat side, do not use the edge (people use a 90-degree angle but you are missing out on all that surface on the stone). Always use an upwards motion and go towards your ear (this is where the lymph nodes are which help to reduce puffiness). There are many videos on Instagram @thefacialgoddess
You can keep your tools cool but traditionally the stones are warmed up to increase blood flow and qi. I like to dip my solalite gua sha in warm water.
The best way to clean your sodalite gua sha is after every use, wipe off your face oil and clean with warm soapy water, dry with a clean tissue or cloth and place back in the pouch.
It is recommended to do facial gua sha daily when you first start, even if it is just for 5 mins a day, after a month then you can do a maintenance ritual 2-3 times a week with your sodalite gua sha.
What is Gua Sha?
Gua Sha has risen in popularity rapidly in the last few years, especially in the skincare and wellness industry. Gua Sha (pronounced gwa sa) has been used for centuries as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), much of the history and meaning behind the technique has been lost or overlooked by beauty brands who do not really know the true meaning of gua sha.
Gua sha offers many benefits for skin and health, in TCM, gua sha is commonly used to help relieve muscle aches, pain, fever and other illnesses. The technique has been passed down through generations, with its roots in Eastern wellness methods, how lucky we are to now have these healing modalities in the West.
The most common types of gua sha tools are jade, rose quartz and sodalite gua sha but there are many other stones you can use, the best way is to buy what you are drawn to, that is usually the right crystal for you.
