Kansa—the Sanskrit word for “bronze”—is a metal alloy composed primarily of copper. In Ayurveda, copper serves a wide variety of beneficial purposes thanks to its antimicrobial and detoxifying properties. The ability of the Kansa wand to cleanse impurities, improve lymphatic function, and boost complexion is part of the reason why we decided to make our own!
