What are Mala Bracelets? Mala beads are a string of beads traditionally used in prayer and meditation. They are also a beautiful reminder of our intentions.
Malas can be made from gemstones that match the intention of your practice, and often malas are placed in shrines as a reminder of affirmations. Malas are also referred to as mala beads, Buddhist beads or Buddhist prayer beads.
There are several mala styles. Some malas are made with only 108 beads, a guru, and/or a tassel. Our mala bracelets come in various counts to fit the wearer's wrist.
Mala beads have been used in Buddhism and Hinduism for centuries. Buddhists malas are often made up of different types of wood, such as sandalwood and rosewood. In Hinduism, you will find malas made with rudraksha, which is considered a very holy and protective seed.
How should I measure for my mala bracelet?
1. Measure Your Wrist Size
Measure the circumference around your wrist with a tape measure, just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet. If you don’t have a tape measure, you can use some string to get the circumference and place the string against a ruler.
2. Choose Your Fit
Your desired fit is an individual choice. Remember our bracelets are elastic and do have stretch in them to fit over your hand. However, if you have an unusally large hand compared to your wrist, we recommend that you take that into consideration when choosing your size.

- Loose Fit (Recommended):
If you want a loose fit where the bracelet can slip on and off quite easily and has a bit of freedom to move (but it not swimming around on your wrist) select a bracelet size that is at least 1-2 cm bigger than your wrist size.
We recommend a loose fit because it is more comfortable as it has a bit of wiggle room, plus it will place the elastic cord under less pressure over time because it is easier to get on and off.
- Snug Fit:
If you would prefer a snug fit where the bracelet fits quite close to your wrist and doesn't move a lot choose a tighter size which is something a little closer to your actual wrist size.
Bear in mind you don't want it to be uncomfortably tight so leave at least 0.5 - 1 cm extra for your bracelet. Most peoples hands can squeezed a bit and the bracelet will stretch a bit so you can squeeze into the bracelet.
XXS - 14cm

How to Set Intentions?
Mala beads are more than just accessories. They’re meditation tools that have been used for thousands of years. They encourage us to pause, breathe and realign with our deepest intentions. They motivate us to invest in moments of self-care and compassion. They’re our spiritual forget-me-nots.
Using mala beads to set intentions is a powerful way to manifest your dreams and achieve your goals.
SIX STEPS TO SETTING INTENTIONS
1. Dig deep.
There are two critical questions you must ask yourself when setting intentions:
What do I want?
How do I want to feel?
Our feelings provide insight into our true desires. When we craft our intentions based on our true desires we start to align with our purpose and things really start to sparkle. Use your feelings as a compass when crafting intentions. Then get clear in your mind about what it is you want and how it is you want to feel.
2. Write it down.
Once you can clearly visualize your intentions, write them down. Make this a sacred practice. Light some candles, play some mellow music and get cozy. Make sure what you write is affirmative and empowering. For example, instead of “I want to lose 10 pounds by Christmas,” try something like, “I want to feel healthy, strong and radiant this holiday season.” When we write our intentions down we make them real, we give them power.
3. Share it.
Open up and share your intentions with the world. When we feel supported, we feel empowered, confident and radiant. You never know who out there can help you manifest your dreams. There’s strength in numbers. Don’t be shy. Open your heart and raise your voice.
4. Wear it.
Wear your mala during your intention setting process and daily as a reminder of your goals and dreams. When you feel overwhelmed or anxious, take hold of the guru stone and feel the energy of the healing crystals guiding you to peace.
5. Release + Trust.
Surrender your intentions to the universe. Once you’ve written them down and shared them, let them go. Check-in with your intentions frequently, but don’t become obsessed with specifics. Trust that the universe has got your back.
6. Check in.
Remind yourself daily of your intentions. Develop a spiritual ritual for yourself. Maybe it’s a morning meditation or an evening yoga practice. Use this time to count your blessings and align with your intentions.
