How to Cleanse Your Mala Beads
Mala beads are believed to absorb and store energy, therefore depending on your preference you may wish to cleanse your mala beads from time to time.
We recommend that you do not lend or share your malas with others as not to transfer any energy. If this does happen you may wish to cleanse your mala.
How To Cleanse Your Mala
There are a few different ways you can cleanse your mala. Here are some of our favorite ways to cleanse ours:
- placing it in the sunlight or moonlight
- burning white sage
- by sound vibration such as a singing bowl or chanting
All of our malas are blessed in Bali and it is not necessary to cleanse before wearing.
Cleaning Your Mala
With regular use you may also wish to clean your mala from time to time. You can do this by placing the mala in warm water. You can also add a mild soap if you wish. Soak the beads for some time (some suggest leaving in over night). Use a delicate brush to scrub the seeds. Leave the beads to fully dry.
After cleaning you can also brush your mala with coconut oil, or sandalwood oil. Oiling will make the beads strong and they won't dry out.
If your mala is well loved you may also want to freshen up the tassel. One way to do this is by wetting the tassel and gently combing the strands.
