The construction of a Mala is intentional all the way through – from the selection of materials to the meaning given by the person wearing it.
The materials used to make Malas have natural energetic properties and hold sacred, spiritual meaning. Your custom Mala bracelet is constructed with 18, 27, or 54 beads and fastened with a guru bead. You have the option of adding a tassle, pendant, marker beads, knots between the beads (this lengthens the bracelet), and choosing the band material and color.
Upon receiving your Mala, be sure to cleanse it and set your intention. Cleansing is done using Palo Santo sticks or a Sage smudge stick. Set your intention by touching each bead and reciting a 3-5 phrase mantra such as “Love, peace, joy.”
Note: If you would like to send in a personal pendant for your Mala, please indicate so when ordering.
