What makes our crystals so special?

6 April 2021

The market is currently flooded with gua sha tools claiming to be the real deal, but what is it that makes our crystal tools so special? For a start, many of the gua sha tools out there are not in fact real crystal but often glass or composite.

Pure crystals carry energy into the body and it’s imperative to use the highest quality. Glass, plastic or chemically-treated crystals will provide nothing more than an inferior skin massage which couldn’t be further removed from gua sha. Our crystals receive no treatment other than shaping by hand and polishing. This is also why each and every one of our crystal gua sha tools are different and completely unique.

When heated, both jade and quartz are excellent conductors of FIR (Far Infrared Rays). Far Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone. Infrared radiation has been proven to increase collagen and elastin production with continued use.

All our crystals are GIA certified by the British Association of Gemmologists, and of the highest quality possible, affording our complete assurance in both the benefits and power of our gua sha tools.

When you learn how to harness the power of these remarkable crystals, they offer a truly integrated approach to wellness, health and beauty. These gua sha tools and techniques have been used for thousands of years. They’re incredibly powerful, 100% natural and last a lifetime.

Every Hayo’u tool has been recognised by the most coveted awards in the industry including the Beauty Bible, Beauty Shortlist, Bazaar Best of the Best Beauty Awards and Vogue Beauty Awards.

Looking after your crystals

Crystals have the ability to absorb and hold unique energies, both positive and negative. This makes it important to energetically cleanse and recharge them. Think of a crystal like a battery. It vibrates at a certain frequency and emits a low energy. When we’re using a crystal, we’re also using its energy. However, this energy will deplete over time and the crystal may absorb negative energy. For example, if you have had a bad day and you are using the crystal for a facial routine to calm you down. It may take that negative energy away from you, but you will need to cleanse the crystal from what it may have picked up. Look after your crystals and they will look after you.

There are several ways in which you can energetically cleanse your crystals.

  • Cold water with sea salt.
  • Cleanse in the sea.
  • A running stream.
  • Submerge your crystal under cool water for 3 hours after cleansing.
  • Put your crystal outside overnight or on the windowsill when there is a full moon.
  • Leave your crystal outside or on a windowsill in direct sunlight.

Energetically grounding and charging your crystals

There are several ways in which to ground and recharge your crystals. Grounding and recharging a crystal ensures that it has a balanced and stable energy.

Place your crystals among the leaves and flowers of a healthy plant for 12 hours outside or 24 hours inside. Some crystals have the ability to charge other crystals. Place the crystals you would like to charge on a large crystal that can charge other crystals, such as clear quartz, amethyst, carnelian, selenite and quartz cluster. Leave them to charge for 24 hours.

So when it comes to Hayo’u, you can have 100% confidence in our gua sha tools. After all, why opt for a cheaper version when you can invest in one or two tools of the highest quality knowing that they will last a lifetime?
