108 divinely aromatic Sandalwood 5 mm beads are strung to make this meditation tool. The yellow-orange cord tassel is 2" from the guru bead.
Sandalwood is linked to several spiritual practices such as Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sufism, Zoroastrianism and some other East Asian religions. The classic-scented oil from the valuable East Indian tree is found in many perfumes and aromatherapy to promote mental and physical health. Sandalwood has been known to address problems of alertness, anxiety, wound healing and difficulty sleeping. The coveted, comforting scent alone is a bonus.
