Our 108 Hand Knotted Sandalwood Mala is a lovely and smells even better. Sandalwood know for its fragrant scent is a soft appealing smell that has been cherished by gurus for centuries. Although it is very time consuming to place each knot, the end result is worth it. It reminds me of the ones our gurus wear back in India even today.
