- Used for over 5,000 years by Ayurvedic practitioners, the Kansa Wand not only boosts circulation, plumps, depuffs, firms, and softens fine lines, but when acids are released from the body in conjunction with the facial tool, it delivers a greying effect on the skin. Easily rinse-able with water, the grey effect signifies that your skin is detoxing. The Kansa wand is made from teak wood and Kansa metal—a mix of copper and tin. Ancient wisdom claims this metal to be more healing than gold or silver and helps increase your skin's ability to heal.
- The Kansa wand is used to massage the marma or "energy points" on your body. First, apply a few drops of your favorite serum (Radiant Rani Brightening Serum pairs nicely with the wand). Copper is a healing metal that will enhance the function of an antioxidant-rich serum or oil as you gently massage.
You can massage in any way that feels best, some recommendations are:
1. Massage the wand in circles around the middle of the forehead five times in a counterclockwise direction. Repeat five times in a clockwise direction.
2. Draw the figure-eight pattern on the forehead five times. This calms the mind and emotions, stimulates memory, and improves concentration. It’s also helpful for relieving sinus headaches.
3. Massage in a zigzag pattern across the forehead five times, using gentle pressure.
4. Clench your teeth so that you can feel the jaw muscle. Massage with firm pressure in a circular motion on this point with the wand. Repeat five times.
5. Circle the cheekbone five times using firm pressure.
6. Move under the cheekbone. Massage upward and downward with firm pressure, moving from the corner of the mouth up to the earlobe and back to the corner of the mouth
7. Move to the jawline. Move down from the ear to along the jaw towards the chin, from the chin back along the jaw to the ear lobe.
- Care: For daily care, simply wipe wand after each use or use soap and water only on the metal part. For a deeper clean, create a paste with tea tree oil and fuller's earth clay.

"But it stems from another place that I never quite celebrated while growing up in Wisconsin as a first-generation Indian American. After visiting Jaipur, India in 2010 as an adult, the thought of owning my story and upbringing became clear. For the first time, I wanted to reclaim those years and really celebrate my culture and pass on those traditions and heirlooms to anyone who may or may not feel the same way. It took me a minute, but when I got there, the juices started flowing and the inspiration was limitless.
Yet, inspired is an understatement. The elevated level of self-care in India and their devotion to ritualistic daily practices sparked the idea for Ranavat, a botanical skincare collection that drives connection. Kings and queens of Rajasthan wanted to live forever (don’t we all), and they used ancient elixirs and potions to help them get there. But when I think of royals, I don’t consider them elitists - I don’t connect with that. These are men and women who served their community and kept track of their kingdom.
With that in mind, I revealed Ranavat in 2017 because I truly believe that right now, more than ever, we want to feel something. A product is a product. I know that. You know that. There’s enough out there in the world that can take us from point A to point B." - Michelle Ranavat
How It’s Made:
Ranavat learned first-hand that working with only the essentials yields noticeable results. The brand's distinct aesthetic and thoroughly researched formulations give way to each strategically-picked botanical.
When it comes to creating the blends, Ranavat prefers taking the long road. Each ingredient is methodically extracted, preserved for its healing properties, and secured for your skin’s benefit. Essentially, it’s the melding of modern chemistry and romance.
