Sandal Wood Malas
The Sandalwood Meditation Mala is made with the traditional 108 beads. Each bead is smooth combined with a natural gemstone or crystal.
The beads have a light sandalwood scent. Sandalwood has traditionally been regarded as one of the purest substances and is valued for its cooling properties and its medicinal value, too. It is believed to promote tranquility as an aid to meditation.
Sandalwood's scent is both excellent for staying present and alert during meditation, which makes it wonderful for ritual and spiritual practice. Its scent is said to transform desires, and also to bring emotional balance. In alternative healing, sandalwood is used in Ayurvedic medicine, and to treat anxiety, insomnia, neuralgia, sciatica, depression, coughs, nausea, dry skin, cardiac tonic, inflammations, fevers, antiseptic, dystentery, and stress-related disorders. Sandalwood is also used as an aphrodisiac.
