Mala beads were originally created over a thousand years ago, to assist the wearer in prayer, they are a type of rosary, to count blessings or intentions. (A intention is a devotional affirmation said out loud). Our mala bracelets have no religious connotation, and are worn by people of many different faiths.
The most important part of using a mala, is that each intention is done with deep love, compassion, devotion and for us to be in the present moment, which is one of the main reasons malas where created, to help us stay focused on our breathing, our intentions, and to help avoid distraction during meditation.
Lava Stone: Volcanic Rock or Basalt is formed when gasses are trapped in cooling lava. This combines the elements of earth, air, and fire to create a truly unique mineral that imparts a deeply grounding vibration. The energy of Lava Stone is intensely calming and healing. Lava acts as a natural diffuser, when combined with our body heat the stone diffuses essential oil. This stone will hold and carry 1-2 drops of essential oil per 8mm bead.
Our bracelets are strung with durable elastic stretch cord. 7.0 inch is average size for most wrists. Each stone is unique; please allow for slight variations. Please indicate wrist size in comment section at checkout.
