Rosewood Prayer Mala with Dorje Tassel

Rosewood  – is a wood that is found in abundance and used for many items from furniture to essential oils, but its use in malas is most helpful in its simplicity.  A simple mala made from wood will eliminate distractions and allow for a more focused and deep meditation practice.  The scent of rosewood is an added bonus and will also provide a sense of calm and relaxation, especially when worn around the neck as a mala. The mild scent of rosewood has been known to alleviate depression and can be used as an aphrodisiac.
