Sandalwood- In India sandalwood is given divine status and is thus very commonly used in mala beads. The fragrance of 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. Our bracelets are authentic Indian bracelets that have been blessed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Each bracelet comes specially gift-wrapped with you in mind!
