Tulsi and freshwater pearls with sterling silver caps.
Premium hand carved Tulsi beads from Vrindavan.
The benefits of the Tulsi(Ocimum tenuiflorum) leaves are well proven, but did you know the touch of the Tulsi wood on skin acts as a rejuvenator for the stressed mind and brings the spiritual self of a person closer to God? Wearing Tulsi beads brings good luck and fortune to the devoted wearer, and balances the kapha and the vata dosha. The beads are used to worship Krishna (an incarnate of Lord Vishnu who is believed to be the creator and the beloved of the Tulsi) when strung as chanting malas.
When a pearl is born, it is the result of irritation to the soft body of a mollusk. The sea animal, trying to soothe the stuck sand or speck, nourishes the irritation with a layer of nacre, followed by another and another until the pearl is formed. This is why pearls are considered to be gems of nurturing and nourishment, as their origin is a result of self-nurturing. That’s why it’s no surprise that pearls have a centuries-long reputation for their healing properties, especially in traditional Asian medical systems, and is also why pearls have many metaphysical properties akin to crystals
