The Meaning behind Malas + How to Care for Them


Mala Beads, or prayer beads, are unique pieces that we may use to set intentions, meditate, or simply wear for beauty + positive energy. Each mala necklace will have its own set of properties depending on the crystals/gemstones chosen to help aid you in your spiritual practice. You may set your own intention with your Mala necklace or bracelet + meditate with your intention or mantra.
If you practice yoga, Mala Bracelets are great to wear during your practice, wrapping your intentions + yoga practice together.

Your handcrafted Mala has been designed + created to meet the highest standards of quality. Whether you meditate mindfully with your mala or feel it’s positive vibes + energy by wearing it simply around your neck or wrist, there are some simple ways to extend its longevity.
To extend its beauty over time:

AVOID WATER. Avoid contact with water + do not wear during vigorous activity. Please do not wear your Mala during swimming, hot yoga, sauna/steam room or while bathing or showering. Water and chemical products (chlorine, detergents, oils, perfume, etc) could cause damage to the cord + findings.

KEEP YOUR MALA SAFE. Avoid hanging your Mala as prolonged hanging can pull + break down the cord. Storing your Mala in a soft cloth bag or jewelry box will protect it from animals, children + dust.

POLISH. Our Mala Beads are made with high-quality Sterling Silver or 14k gold fill and overtime exposure to air + moisture can tarnish. Simply use a polishing cloth to gently brighten your metals and return them to their original shine.

When you receive your Mala necklace - hold it in your hands, take a few deep breaths + think or speak your intention over it. Your mala is now charged with your intention + is ready to help you in your journey! To cleanse/charge it after wearing simply place it on or near Clear Quartz or Selenite, or place it in the sunlight for about an hour. Some crystals are sensitive to sunlight and can fade over time so be sure not to leave it out too long.

Mala Break "throughs"


Oh no, your mala broke... it's totally ok! Your previous intention has been fulfilled! Malas are a unique tangible reminder of our intentions + our unique journey so when they break it represents a "progression on your path".
You don't "need" the healing gemstones anymore + the intention you set has worked it's magic!
A broken mala signifies a time for reflection + transition.
In a healthy practice of letting go, we urge you to consider releasing the intention associated with that Mala + turn your thoughts to what you wish to manifest next.

If you just adore your mala + wish to have it restrung, that's perfectly fine too! Just reach out via email at thecrystallinemoon@gmail.com + we can repair it for a $35 handknotting + restringing fee.

How to Use Your Smudge Bundle


Open windows in the room you are intending to cleanse to allow the smoke + negative energies to escape. You can say or think any positive intentions you have for this cleansing.
Before lighting, remove Selenite wand for safe keeping.

*IMPORTANT*
Should you chose to burn your smudge bundles, Please do so with care! Do not burn around anything flammable or leave unattended while burning. Make sure to place your smudge bundle in a fire safe dish/bowl/burner/wand after it is lit to prevent any accidents.

***Do NOT leave your burning bundle unattended!***

To light your bundle, place the tip over a flame + allow it to ignite for a few seconds + then blow the flame out. You want the bundle to smoke, but not be aflame. When you are finished burning your smudge stick, make sure it is completely out (you can spritz with water to ensure) and place in a fire proof container for extra safe keeping.

Please burn responsibly!
