About Howlite: White howlite is said to bring ideas into focus and is a stone of purity. It is also recognized as a stone that can calm the mind and decease anger. Howlite is often dyed other colors but we like it best in it's natural white and grey form!
About Mala Beads: Mala beads can be more than beautiful jewelry: They can be gateways for personal peace, prayer and meditation. If you haven't used mala beads before, don't be intimidated as they can be used by anyone AND they can simply be enjoyed as a decorative piece. Traditionally, mala beads are used to keep count when reciting a mantra.
To count your mantras, hold your mala in your hand and turn each bead with your thumb and middle finger, making your way around the beads. Reaching the larger Guru bead at the end signifies a time for reflection. A mantra may be a simple prayer or affirmation.
