FAQ's

What are your Rudraksha mala’s made from?

Spiritually they have been worn and used for meditation by Hindu’s and Buddhists for many centuries. They are considered to be very holy and healing in their effect on the wearer.  They bless one with peace of mind, protect against evil spirits and protect the wearer against an early or untimely death. It is believed if wearing the mala upon dying one is released from the karmic cycle of birth and death. They are grown in the wild in sustainable plantations found in the Himalayas, Nepal, Malaysia and South East Asia.

How should I care for my rudraksha mala?

Rudraksha beads are sacred and need to be treated with respect and care. We suggest you wash them every once in a while to remove dirt and dust, and to oil them with coconut or sandalwood oil for preservation. Due to your natural body oil, they will turn darker with wear, which gives them a much loved and lived in look.
