A symbol of protection, healing, and inner peace, sandalwood is a sacred ornament for the wearer. Sandalwood is said to attract positive energy, enhance perception and promote tranquility. In India sandalwood is given divine status and is thus very commonly used in mala beads. The fragrance of the sandalwood is said to be one of the most pleasing to the Gods and is considered cooling, calming and soothing. Sandalwood also promotes humility and focuses the mind to aid in meditation.
Beads are from Nepal. Carefully hand strung in the USA for Tara Imports.
