The following article was written by my husband sharing his personal experience using the Aulora Oil and Aulora Board from BE International Marketing.
No too long ago, I wrote about my personal experience wearing the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi from BE International.
In this article, I thought of writing another BE product review which are the Aulora Oil and Aulora Board.
What prompted me to try the 2 health and wellness products above?
To be honest, I wanted to experience the effect of Gua Sha.
Understanding the health benefits of gua sha
Personally, I like going for a massage to relieve my tired muscles.
When I was in my mid thirties, I would go for shiatsu massage once a week to relieve my tired and sore muscles from working out at the gym and also boxing and martial art classes.
Throughout that time, I have never tried gua sha before.
I have heard about it, but I never really tried it.
What is gua sha?
According to www.healthline.com,
Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation.
The practice of gua sha is done by scraping your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue which increases blood flow.
The scraping of the skin is done using a smooth-edged instrument known as a gua sha massage tool.
What are the health benefits of gua sha?
Some of the benefits of gua sha are:
- Promotes metabolism and blood circulation
- Dispelling pathogenic wind
- Improve body immune system
My experience using the Aulora Oil & Aulora Board
My first experience opening the bottle of Aulora Oil is its pleasant smell.
The smell of the oil is very soothing and calming. The smell is also not too over-bearing.
When I first apply the oil on my shoulder, one thing that I noticed is there is no heating feeling.
I was expecting it to feel like a sore muscle relieving liquid such as Ammeltz Yoko Yoko which give off a heating feel on my skin.
To my surprise, I don’t feel any heating sensation on my skin.
That made me wonder…what are the ingredients in the Aulora Oil?
After doing some research, I found out that there are 10 ingredients used to make the Aulora Oil.
The ingredients are:
- Prunus amydalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil
- Vitamin E
- Origanum majorana leaf oil
- Lavandula angustifolia (lavander) oil
- Pelargonium graveolens (rose geranium) oil
- Zinglber officinale (ginger) root oil
- Juniperus communis (juniper) fruit oil
- Santalum spacita wood oil
- Rosemarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract
- Helichrysum italicum flower oil
As for the Aulora Board, there is nothing much to it other than it was made using buffalo horn.
Why made it using a buffalo horn instead of ceramic, metal, plastic etc?
It seems the massage board made with buffalo horn can last longer and is also ultra smooth.
The smoothness of the board surface will never hurt your skin as you use it to scrap across your skin to cause petechiae.
Petechiae or sha are light bruising which often appears as purple or red spots on your body which are tensed, fatigued or tired.
For me personally, I always experienced stiff and tired shoulders because I spend long hours sitting in front of the computer.
As you can see from the picture below, the red spots after gua sha are on my rhomboid muscles and shoulder blade.
These are the muscle groups which are always stiff when I spent a few hours working in front of my computer.
There is no pain feeling whatsoever.
To my surprise, the relaxing effect on my upper back and shoulder can be felt immediately.
All in all, my experience using the Aulora Oil and Aulora Board has been positive.
