Salty Kisses Mala
If your spirit animal is the mermaid, the Salty Kisses Mala is for you. You love the ocean, your toes in the sand, the sun on your face, your hair in the breeze and above all, salty kisses.
The word Aquamarine is derived from latin where "aqua" means "water" and "marine" means "of the sea" and was believed to be treasured by mermaids. It is a vital tool in cleansing and clearing the water element, a symbol of our emotions and feelings. It has been used for protection when traveling by, over or near water. Aquamarine can be the perfect companion for meditation as well as connecting the heart and throat chakra so you can speak from your heart.
Cherry Quartz is a manmade "stone" which is actually glass. It is the color of the heart chakra, reminding us to live a life full of love.
Sandalwood promotes humility and its scent is believed to aid and maintain a person's alertness while meditating.

Sourcing of our sandalwood mala beads:
Since 2014, Blooming Lotus Jewelry has been supporting a family-owned small business in Rishikesh, India, by sourcing all of our sandalwood beads from them. In October of 2014, I met with the family in person at their shop in the heart of Rishikesh, the birthplace of yoga. Our sandalwood is sustainably sourced in Mysore, India, adhering to harvesting regulations and using fair-trade practices. It then makes its way to my supplier in Rishikesh, before heading to us here in the U.S. to be assembled into various mala designs unique to Blooming Lotus Jewelry. We are proud to know our source personally and directly support their family for the past 8 years.
