Palo Santo Mala
Palo Santo wood has been used for thousands of years by Shamans and Healers among the Inca population. This Holy Wood" is a part of their ceremonies and healing rituals. It provides energetic protection and removes bad energies.
The mala's origin goes back almost 3000 years and the term is derived from the Sanskrit word “Japamala,” which is a string of beads used for prayer and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists. It is similar to the concept of a Rosary in the Catholic faith.
The mala string is made up of 108 individual beads, which are used to keep count while chanting or repeating a mantra or intention while meditating. It is a tool to help you count mantras, and acts as a tactile guide as you sit in silence.
The number 108 has spiritual significance and is considered sacred in the Hindu religion. The number 1 stands for God, the universe or your own highest truth, 0 stands for emptiness and humility in your spiritual practice and 8 stands for infinity and timelessness.
Hand knotted between each bead.
