Roses and Love
Ayurveda has a long tradition of using the energy of gemstones in healing. Worn against the skin, the gemstones impart energy to the body for various purposes. Malas are spiritual strands of 108 beads used in meditation or prayer. We found the most beautiful mala, called “The Rose Love Mala” made in Bali, just in time for Valentine’s Day! The design consists of:
-Rose Quartz (the Meru, or center stone) is known as the love stone, it opens the heart, enhances feelings of love and creativity, and helps to heal emotional wounds.
-Rhodochrosite is known as the stone of passion. It opens the heart chakra and increases optimism, spontaneity and the expression of feelings.
-Quartz Crystal increases spiritual wisdom, insight and clarity of thought.
-Tulsi is also called Holy Basil, and the wood of Tulsi is said to be more powerful than any gem in the protection from negative influences. It is a wonderful tool for meditation and spiritual growth.
