This mala is made from Tulsi wood, also known as Holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) and in India is revered as a holy plant due to its medicinal properties like curing fever and cough as well as its link to the Indian God Vishnu who is the preserver of life.
Every part of the Tulsi plant has its use; the leaves and flowers are used to make tea and the wood (from the stem) is used to make wooden beads that are then strung together to make 108 bead malas.
Wearing a Tulsi mala helps you reduce stress, balance your body physiologically and offers you protection.
These Tulsi malas have 108 beads that have been hand knotted on earth-dyed AHIMSA (cruelty free) silk.
Bead size: 5mm
