The kansa wand, pronounced cuns, is made from pure tin and copper (a sacred bronze) known as “Healing Metal” in Ayurveda. The goal behind using the kansa wand is to provide slight friction to the facial muscles. This pulls acidity from the tissues and decreases damaging acid build-up. It has been used for centuries in India to improve health, reduce stress and increase energy. It can also leave the skin with a natural, healthy glow.
This is a very convenient tool to use, as it’s designed with a wooden handle and bronze dome. Without much effort, you can apply as much pressure as you prefer when stroking the tool along your face. Similarly to other facial tools, the kansa wand works even better when you apply organic oils to your face beforehand. In India and in Ayurveda practices, jojoba oil is the popular choice.
