The Bian Goddess Gua Sha stone from Philosophia Botanica was designed by Francesca- a Traditional Chinese Medicine and Thai Medicine practitioner, yoga teacher, botanical skincare formulator and all-round amazing human.
Since attending the Pro Gua Sha training with Francesca, we connected in a way that had me feeling like I'd known her forever...we connected through our mutual love and passion for 'flow'.
I am so excited and honoured to bring her magical stones and wisdom to Australia.
Francesca has taken the time to 'cleanse' each stone in moonlight, and I advise you to continue this ritual should you choose to invest in the Goddess Gua Sha.
Yes, facial Gua Sha has a long list of benefits...just as bian stone has a long list of healing properties.
I'm not so interested in isolated benefits anymore, and I believe those who would benefit the most from the practice of facial Gua Sha are those who feel especially drawn to the stones, drawn to the idea.
I don't want you to invest in this stone just to improve wrinkles, puffiness, tension and breakouts.
I would rather you look at this as a way of falling in love with taking care of yourself, melting into the decadent experience of intentional self-care.
This is the Goddess stone.
When I think of 'Godess', I envision the feminine, the magical, the mystical and the power of nature.
It really is the best name for it, as Bian stone is famous for it's abundance of trace elements//minerals and all-round healing capabilities. Believed to have formed around 65 million years ago when a meteorite hit the earth's surface, this truly is a powerful stone with a Goddess-like essence.
