Known as "the stone of transformation." Malachite is used for deep energy clearing, bringing healing & positive transformation to the wearer through its ability to stimulate the heart chakra & absorb negative energies & pollutants from the body & its surroundings. Malachite is especially balancing to pitta dosha.
Sandalwood has been honored as a meditation tool for thousands of years. It is widely believed that the scent of Sandalwood can increase sensuality, invoke self-awareness, promote tranquility, enhance the connection to one's higher self & support profound relaxation. Sandalwood stimulates the Muladhara base Chakra, which is believed to enhance trust & self-identity. In Ayurveda, it promotes energy & enthusiasm, increasing a person's self-esteem & enjoyment of life. Sandalwood is especially balancing to vata & pitta dosha.
