Rudraksha seeds are from an evergreen tree, genus Elaeocarpus, and are used to make malas in Hinduism. The name comes from Sanskrit, “Rudra’s eyes.” This traditional style represents Lord Shiva/Rudra himself. Legend says that Shiva awoke after a thousand years of meditation and began to shed tears of worldly wise compassion, these tears crystallized into seeds and there grew the first Rudraksha tree.
Rudraksha: Creates a protection of your own energy, and shields the wearer from negative energies.
Smoky Quartz: One of the best grounding stones available. It helps connect to the nonphysical chakras and bring one back to the physical world. It can protect from negative energies by grounding them to the earth, and assists in organization and sensibility in everyday life.
Complimentary Mala Bag included!
