This beautiful pairing of Mala Beads and B&B Lavender Essential Oil provides an attractive and practical way to wear your lavender scent. Each bracelet has one or more beads made of absorbent wood or lava stone, which holds the essential oil. The more it is used, the more saturated it becomes and will carry the smell of the oil for hours at a time. These Mala Beads were handmade by a longtime friend living in Fort Collins, Colorado. Patti has carefully chosen stones and colors to create these beautiful bracelets. Each piece will come with a bottle of B&B Lavender Essential Oil (Melissa variety) and an informational card explaining the specific stones uses in the bracelet. These have been one of our most popular items in the store and we are excited to be able to offer them for purchase on our website paired with a bottle of our lavender essential oil.
Traditional Mala Beads have a long history. They were first made in India over 3000 years ago and were used in meditation. The word ‘mala’ is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘meditation garland’. Malas are still used today as a tool to help count mantras during meditation and help keep a focused mind.
