Silk Garshana (Lymphatic) Massage Gloves
These premium raw silk gloves have just the right amount of texture to exfoliate dead skin without the harshness of a hard bristle brush or rough exfoliating beads. Garshana—dry massage—helps to unclog pores, optimize sweat gland function, and improve lymphatic circulation.
Garshana (Sanskrit for "friction by rubbing") is an ancient Ayurvedic massage, done with textured, raw silk gloves. Manual massage with garshana gloves stimulates the lymph directly under your skin to carry toxins out of your body at a more efficient rate. Can be used before abhyanga to prime your skin for oils to be readily absorbed. Massage with these gloves daily to:
- Remove ama (toxins), and stimulate blood flow
- Improve lymphatic circulation
- Detox the liver (massage releases impurities in the skin & blood vessels)
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite
- Promote the appearance of smooth, youthful, glowing skin.
On dry, clean skin, apply medium-firm pressure and vigorously massage back and forth over the long bones and in a circular motion over the joints. Avoid massaging over the heart and chest. If desired and time allows, follow garshana massage with a light ayurvedic oil massage (abhyanga) to soothe the skin. Because garshana opens the pores, doing abhyanga afterwards allows the herbal massage oil to better penetrate and nourish the skin more deeply giving it the love it needs.
Our Garshana gloves are one-size-fits-all. The product is intended to fit loosely on your hand and be used in a direction that does not encourage the glove slipping off. In general, if one uses the glove rubbing lightly and sideways, it usually will not slip off, but we do understand that for smaller hands this can still be an issue. Please contact our customer service department if you have issues with fit, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Raw Silk Gloves
A simple, daily essential tool for overall health and well-being.
Garshana (Sanskrit for "friction by rubbing") is an ancient aryuvedic massage, done with textured, raw silk gloves.
I vastly prefer these garshana gloves to a dry brush--much simpler and my skin is softer and smoother than using a bristled brush. a quick and effective way to kick off my morning and start the day! also prepares my skin perfectly for the massage oils and helps them to be more effective and longer lasting!
I put off buying these for years because I had a dry brush and didn’t know the difference. Oh my goodness, these feel heavenly, and I actually use them, versus the dry brush which hurts. Lovely step before oil to get the circulation going.
