Everything you need to know about a JADE ROLLER
WHAT IS A JADE ROLLER
Jade face rollers are relatively new in the western world. Jade face rollers originated in ancient China where they were used in beauty rituals for multiple skin benefits. A jade roller is a dainty pretty tool usually made of a precious or semi-precious stone.
Face rollers made of real jade (jadeite) are very expensive as the stone is quite rare. Most face rollers in the market are made of different stones than jadeite, such as Rose Quartz, Xuiyan, Amethyst etc. hence the different colours of the stones.
HOW TO KNOW IF A JADE ROLLER IS REAL
Face rollers are often referred to as ‘jade rollers’ even though they are made of different stones and not real jade. That’s ok, as long as it’s a real precious or semi-precious stone. What’s important regarding the face roller is the action of rolling the cool stone on the skin which has many skin benefits.
It’s said that different stones have different spiritual properties. Genuine jadeite stone represents health and prosperity and it’s quite rare and valuable. So if you are after the spiritual benefits too and having genuine jade is important to you, ask the seller for a certificate of the stone’s authenticity.
Some face rollers in the market are made of reconstituted stones. It means they are made of marble, glass or different stone debris put together, then bleached, injected with dyes and chemically treated. They also don’t carry any of the original properties of the real stone and because they were treated with chemicals, I wouldn’t like to have them near my skin.
HOW TO KNOW IF A JADE ROLLER IS FAKE
Reconstituted stone rollers are made to resemble authentic jade rollers so they are usually green in colour. They are not as cool in touch as the real stone and they may have tiny cracks in the stone that gather dirt and bacteria.
If you are in any doubt ask the seller to confirm what stone the face roller is made of and for the certificate of the stone’s authenticity.
HOW JADE ROLLER WORKS AND WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOUR SKIN
The action of rolling the cool stone on the skin is very relaxing and it encourages lymphatic drainage. The face roller can help with the below:
- Reduce face and eye puffiness
- Reduce lines and wrinkles
- Reduce dark circles under eyes
- Improve skin elasticity
- Tighten pores
- Brighten up the complexion
- Reduce skin inflammation and redness
- Encourage relaxation
Regular face massage using a jade face roller will help increase blood circulation and lymph flow and remove toxins. This will help enhance the skin tone, reduce puffiness and dark circles and allow the skin to look healthier and more youthful.
HOW TO USE JADE ROLLER ON THE FACE TO SLOW DOWN SKIN AGING
Face massage using a jade face roller is a wonderful addition to your daily natural skin care routine if you crave something more than a face massage with just your fingers. And it’s said that ‘3 minutes of rolling per day keeps wrinkles away’.

You can store the face roller in the fridge before using it on the skin, especially during the summer months, to keep the stone extra cool. It will enhance the skin tightening and relaxing benefits.
HOW TO CLEAN JADE FACE ROLLER
After each use, wipe the face roller with a soft dry cloth. Once per week use a cloth dampened with soapy water to clean your jade roller. Don’t submerge it in the water. ⠀⠀
Genuine stone face rollers are fragile and most likely will break when dropped so keep it safe, stored in the Sana Naturals eco pouch or in its original packaging.
