Jade is a powerful gemstone that has been used for thousands of years in both Eastern and Western cultures. In China, jade was utilized in the building of sacred structures and statues as a way of promoting prosperity. Viking warriors forged many of their weapons with jade; it’s said to have protective qualities that were essential in battle. For generations, jade has been a beauty staple in Asia and Europe.
Jade Rollers are hand-held contraptions used on the face, neck and décolleté. They typically have a smooth, cylindrical jade stone attached to a wheel on a handle and possess both cosmetic and therapeutic properties.

Along with love, jade is sought after for its anti-aging qualities. It cools the skin and can minimize the appearance of pores for a dewy effect. Regular use can help relieve tension in the facial muscles—a cause of wrinkles and pre-mature aging.
Speaking of stress relief, using a jade roller calms both the skin and the spirit. Properties of jade encourage peace and harmony, so just having the jade roller around can uplift our environment.
Jade rollers complement our skincare regimen because their recommended use is with liquid products. So whether we just finished our DIY mask before bed or we’re applying a moisturizer with sunscreen before a day out, using the roller after applying products (but before make-up!) pushes them into our pores for longer-lasting results.
