How to Use/Wear
Avoid exposing your mala beads to sun and water. Occasionally, but not too often, your mala beads need to be cleaned. Place them in a bowl of water (room temperature) and soak up to 5 minutes. Use a soft cloth to wipe the beads, rinse off and dry them. Wood beads need at least 24 hours to be completely dry.
Store your mala on your altar or on any sacred place, best surrounded by crystals and any other sacred object.
