Caring for your mala
Your mala beads have the power to heal you, protect you, and guide you. They are a constant reminder of your truth + intention. No doubt, they hold great significance in your daily life and your meaningful rituals. We recommend that you care for your mala in the following ways:
Swimming, showering, sleeping with, or working out with your mala on should be completely avoided. Water especially will cause the thread of your mala to break down, as it is made of 100% pure silk.
Precious metals & porous gemstones should not be treated with ammonia, chlorine, or other harsh chemical solvents found in cleaners, perfumes & lotions.
Polish your mala beads with a 100% cotton cloth or special jewelry cleaning cloth only.
Keep your mala beads stored in the muslin pouch we supplied you with to prevent oxidation and tarnishing.
Hand-made mala beads are unique, precious, sacred and fragile. Please wear them with the utmost care.
Cleansing Your Mala
Mala beads absorb energy and should be cleansed regularly in order to function at their highest frequency. The most effective way to give them a deep energy cleaning involves water + the Full Moon.
Think about how clear and cleansed you feel after an intense hot yoga session and a salt scrub. Same idea! Our crystals need love to.
FULL MOON MALA CLEANSING + ACTIVATION RITUAL
To cleanse, activate and recharge your mala::
Leave your mala overnight in direct moonlight, at the peak of the Full Moon. Let them bathe during sunrise, too, then bring them inside.
After cleansing: Charge your mala beads with your intention by closing your eyes and imagining all unwanted energy being released, and being fully recharged with positive energy from the Universe!
Close this ritual with a thank-you to Mother Earth, Mama Moon and Father Sun for all the ways they support your journey. Acknowledge the elements, the lessons and the blessings.
Your mala is a sacred tool infused with healing vibrations, and reminds you to say focused on what matters most to your heart + spirit. It is not necessary to do this every Full Moon, but you can, depending on how much negative energy has been cycling through it.
Our mantra is: Love your mala and it will love you back!
