Our take on the classic mala bead bracelet. We combine beautiful, serene Turquoise with the traditional meditation wood known as Agarwood. An everyday bracelet to gently remind us of intention and well-being.
This double-wrap mala bracelet is comprised of an eye-catching, stabilized-Turquoise stone and rare Vietnam Nha Trang Red Oil Agarwood. The Agarwood is a wonderful dark brown color with deep resin strikes resembling tiger stripes throughout.
For thousands of years, Turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility and protection. Legend has it that Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. The tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become Turquoise. Turquoise signifies the god of the sky alive in the earth. Wear Turquoise for its beautiful, serene colors and as a purification stone to dispel negative energies and protect against outside influences.
Agarwood (also called Aloeswood or Oud) is a spiritual wood used extensively in Buddhist ceremonies and meditation. Agarwood is naturally formed within the forests of Southeast Asia when the Agar tree develops resins as a natural defence against infection. Over an extensive period of time (up to 100 years), the resin saturates the wood, resulting in a rare, dark, beautiful heartwood.
Agarwood is also known as a spiritual and healing wood. Many believe Agarwood contains the positive life energy (Qi) of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment and health. Agarwood bracelets and necklaces are carried or worn to manifest positive energy and good fortune.
