Today’s post is all about answering this question that I get a lot from you Merbabes – what’s the difference between jade rollers and rose quartz rollers?
So after reading my previous post on face rolling 101, you’re now convinced that a crystal face roller is THE ONE – a divine and relaxing routine to sculpt your face and detox your skin. Now the question is, team rose quartz or team jade? You’ve seen them both on Instagram, but you’re super confused about any differences between the two. If you decide that you need both for that perfect shelfie, I totally get it (I myself have a collection of over 20 face rollers!). But if we need to pick one, I’m here to help.
In terms of cleaning the rollers, both types of crystals are porous so it’s a big no no to clean with any harsh chemicals. I recommend spraying it with alcohol spray and wipe dry with a piece of soft cloth.
When you choose a face roller, think about the size, the weight (large and heavy rollers are not ideal to use on your face), the craftsmanship (whether it’s durable and if it’ll last), and the authenticity of the crystals that they’re made out of.
So when you’re trying to choose between a jade roller and a rose quartz one, it’s pretty much down to their unique energy profiles.
I’ve asked a few of you in my Mer-tribe to share your thoughts on rose quartz or jade and here are some beautiful words:
I feel rose quartz is loving and nurturing. It always helps me feel settled and supported when I’m anxious or stressed. Jade for me is very centering and grounding. It reminds me of my connection to all. – Anna
Last time I was very lost and down, I sat and connected with rose quartz which felt warm in one hand to remind me of my soft, heart, nurturer, and cold haematite in my other hand and it supported my strong, focused core. I came away refreshed, calm and be able to continue with ease. Maybe it was the crystals or maybe the mindfulness, but I am still very grateful to rose quartz and haematite! – Bronwyn
I have been infusing crystal energy into my aromatherapy skin care products. My rose quartz made my skin tingle and feel full and plump. I also noticed I felt more confident and self love, I felt strong yet loving. I call it my goddess cream because I feel totally aligned with the goddess within. – Jane
My son used to call rose quartz my ‘calm stone’. Whenever I lost my temper at anything, he’d say; ‘just a minute mum, let me get your calm stone!’ ???? – Jo-anne
Jade is known to help relax the nervous system and eliminates toxins from the skin. It’s also believed to balance the body & mind connection and dispel bad energy. – Carmel, reiki therapist.
While all crystals promote harmony between the mind, body and spirit, the Jade crystal is a superstar in the world of crystal healing thanks to its powerful connection to the heart chakra and its varying degrees of intense, piercing shades of green. When it comes to bringing prosperity and abundance into your life, the Jade crystal stone is the ultimate good luck charm. – Energy Muse
Although I only have our J-RO by Julisa rose quartz rollers in our range at the moment, I’ve been feeling the call of jade and I’m considering to introduce them in our next launch! For me personally, I’ve always been drawn to rose quartz which makes me feel at peace, calm and loved. I use rose quartz in my meditation, and have created a short mediation routine here designed to be practised before your facial rolling. But it’s funny that I actually grew up wearing jade (a small round piece around my neck), which is a hand-me-down from my great grandmother.
The verdict? Go with your inner calling and reach out to the stone that’s caught your eye.
So tell me Merbabes, are you team Rose Quartz or team Jade?
