Carved sandalwood makes this light mala a classic favorite. Sandalwood's natural scent fades overtime but can be restored with a few drops of essential oil rubbed through the beads. I recommend diluting a couple of drops with jojoba oil and rubbing it into each bead for a very light coating. This is great for the wood and gives you the benefit of sandalwood essential oil, a grounding oil that is a favorite scent of many and considered an aphrodisiac.
If you'd like some sandalwood essential oil diluted in jojoba I can include a roller with this mala for $15. Email me upon ordering to request this addition.

These traditional Buddhist mala are made with various wooden beads and strung on cotton cord. They are simple yet elegant and timeless. Used for thousands of years for meditation, these beads will soften and wear under your hand giving your mala a velvety finish as you use it.
Finished with a Chinese endless knot, an ancient symbol of the flowing of Time and the movement of your life, it represents the eternal mysteries and is one of the Eight Auspicious Buddhist Symbols.
Each mala is handmade, as are these knots, and each is just a bit different making your mala uniquely yours. Customization is available upon request.
