The blue whale is the biggest and one of the oldest animals on Earth. This peaceful, yet strong animal is considered the guardian of oceans and carries deep spiritual awareness.

Some cultures consider blue whales sacred, as their songs are believed to carry ancient wisdom + healing, Their song will help you learn to listen + pay more attention to the voice in your heart.
Diffuser Necklace :: Apply Essential Oils
Rub a drop of the essential oil of your choice on any of the wood beads. Be careful not put oil on any of the gold details - keep it on the wood. The scent will last for 1-2 days - some oils last longer than others. Wood darkens over time with the oils. This is totally normal, and they still look beautiful.
This mala is made with wood beads gold plated details + a whale vermeil charm. It is approximately 30 inches long with a 1.75 inch pendant, it hangs approximately 15 inches. Lighter than our traditional 8 mm mala necklaces, this style weighs 29 grams / 1 oz.
Each bead is carefully and mindfully separated by a tiny gold bead. Once finished, we cleanse and activate it for you with a moonlight bath.

Caring for Our Oceans
The Oceans is our biggest resource for life on Earth.Today, garbage, oil spills, overfishing, mercury pollution, offshore drilling, whaling + shark finning, are amongst some of the most serious problems that are affecting not only the waters, but also the Ocean wildlife. This collection is a tribute to the magic of the Oceans + its animals. My hope is that anyone who a piece is reminded of the love the Ocean has for us, so that we can hopefully do everything in our human power to protect Her.10% of the profits of this piece will be donated to support the restoration of wildlife + wellbeing of our Oceans.
The Ocean Collection
The Ocean is the womb of our Planet, as it is where life began on Earth. It symbolizes both change + constancy, the vast, borderless + formlessness, the wild, untamed + calm, the unknown, unfathomable + the mysterious. It represents the subconscious + our deepest emotions: stormy, crashing, and also peaceful. Its waves carry beautiful, ancient magic + wisdom.Water is the Element of the Divine Feminine: the Element of emotion, intuition, compassion + purification. Everything is born + grows with and because of water. We are mostly made up of water. It carries the essence of life + love and many considered it sacred. The animals who live in the Ocean are held, protected and embraced by Her waters: cleansing, healing, and loving, and they too, are carriers of Her energy as well as their own unique medicine.
