Featuring our Lots' O Rocks' gemstone, Sandalwood beads are traditionally used in malas for meditation with their soothing aroma and are believed to bring clear perception to the wearer. In JB sandalwood bracelets, they are enhanced even further with one of our beautiful gemstones. Our beads are authentic and have been blessed for us by Lama at Swayambhunath Stupa in Kathmandu, Nepal. Their fragrance will last forever with proper care. Namaste!
