Mala beads have been used by yogis and spiritual seekers for thousands of years to help keep their minds focused during meditation. Also called “Yoga Beads”, Malas were first created in India 3000 years ago (with roots in Hinduism and Buddhism) and are used to keep count of mantra repetitions, or for a special style of meditation called Japa, which means, “to recite”. The term ‘mala’ is a Sanskrit word for “meditation garland.”
Mala is usually made of 108 beads and a guru bead. This enhances the practice of japa meditation (also called mantra meditation) by keeping count of the number of times a mantra is chanted. Malas can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27 and 54.
The number of beads in a mala is associated with the aim of japa. A mala with 27 beads is used for attaining spiritual progress, while a mala with 108 beads is used to achieve fulfillment.
Sandalwood’s magical powers are believed to enhance your meditation and increase the power of your wishes. The aroma — which retains its fragrance for decades — comes from the wood itself rather than the leaves or flowers. The warm soothing scent of sandalwood helps the mind to unwind and helps open the heart to love.
In ancient Buddhist tradition, Sandalwood has been celebrated as the perfect meditation tool for thousands of years. It is widely believed that the sandalwood scent can stimulate sensuality, grant a sense of awareness, invoke tranquility, awaken the divine thoughts within and promote profound relaxation. Sandalwood stimulates the base Chakra - believed to enhance trust and self-identity. It promotes energy and enthusiasm; increasing a person's self-esteem and zest for life.
White Jade is used for serenity, wisdom, balance, all things associated with the best of spiritual practices. This gem stone is the ultimate symbol of calm and serenity. It helps bring serenity to the mind by releasing negative thoughts. A stone of balance and healing, it alleviates anxiety and fear based emotions.
Aventurine promotes positive, easy going attitude towards life, balances male and female energies, brings joy, happiness and emotional tranquility. It aligns one's centers, purifies the physical, mental and emotional bodies, promoting health and well-being. Aventurine promotes compassion and empathy, stimulates our mind, creativity, motivation and independence. It protects us against electromagnetic energy and environmental pollution. It is also a stone of prosperity.

- How Do I Take Care of My Bracelet?
How you care for your elastic bracelet is just as important as how we make it. Follow these tips to make them last.
- Always put your elastic bracelet on the right way.
This is one of the main factors in bracelets that don't last. Never put on your bracelet by stretching it over your hand. As much as possible, roll it over your hand without excessive pulling.
Whatever you do, don’t pull on one end of the bracelet to form a triangle and stretch it over your hand. It stresses the elastic and eventually, it will snap. To keep your bracelet in tip top shape, roll the beads over your wrist, stretching the elastic as little as possible.
- Keep the bracelet away from soap, perfumes, hair and skin products, sun screen, salt water, etc. Many of the products we use everyday can degrade the quality of the elastic over time.
If you never take off your elastic jewelry, it is being exposed to chemicals that are breaking down the elastic over time. The shampoo and soaps in the shower, hair sprays, perfume, body lotions, and sunscreen. They all do their part to help breakdown and weaken the elastic over time, eventually causing it to snap. Take elastic bracelets off before applying lotions or sprays. Ideally, don't wear them in the pool or the ocean either.
- The only suggestion to limit the occurrence of having your bracelet get caught on something, is to wear your bracelets on your non-dominant hand. For righties, wear them on the left and lefties, wear them on the right. You are much less likely to get your wrist caught on something with the hand that you use to do less things.
