Sandalwood promotes tranquility during meditation.
Meditation Malas are used for meditation practice to count breaths or mantra repetitions. Neck malas have 108 beads and a 'head bead' to indicate the end and beginning of each 108-bead count. The number of beads signifies the 108 worldly sins in the Buddhist tradition or as a multiple of '9' in the Hindu tradition. This number is also significant in many other religions. Each type of bead has its own significance.
Wrist malas have 27 beads and a head bead. Counting the wrist mala beads 4 times over will achieve a count of 108. Wrist malas have an elastic cord and do not have knots between the beads. Length measurements are around the mala - the circumference.

I love them, I love having them, I love everything about them. They smelled wonderful right when I opened the package. They still smell great, just not as strong of a scent. I feel like they would be a good choice for anyone; also a great thing to wear just about anywhere. :-)
