The Power of Rudraksha Mala Beads & Essential Oils
Welcome to OhanaTribe!
I’m simply Faten, a passionate and curious human being exploring different ways to improve people’s wellbeing, including mine. I founded OhanaTribe to share some of the tools that have helped me personally in my pursuit of a more peaceful and balanced life. Rudraksha Mala Beads and Essential Oils, have helped me foster this harmony into my life along with yoga and meditation.
Sacred Rudraksha for Peace and for Our Planet
I co-designed all the Mala bead necklaces and bracelets mostly with sacred Rudraksha which are also known as the “Eyes of Shiva“. Rudraksha beads are not only sacred and powerful to bring peace, reduce stress and dissipate fear, but they are also 100% natural & sustainable for our planet. Unlike gemstones, which we have to source & use mindfully.
Rudraksha are seeds found in a blueberry-like fruit of the Rudraksha trees that flourish mainly in Nepal, India and Indonesia. All the Mala beads you find here have been handmade and blessed by the soulful artisans of Aum Rudraksha Designs in Bali. My goal by offering their beautiful work of art in Canada is to help them with their mission to bring more peace into the world with the healing powers of Rudraksha mala beads. With each purchase you make, you are encouraging their local economy and helping them fulfill their mission.
Aromatherapy for Your Daily Well-Being
I love nice aromas. Who doesn’t, right? But when it came to finding the right essential oil blend that also pleases skeptics who think all essential oil blends smell like patchouli, that’s when I found my challenge! Having previously worked in fine fragrances, and having the gift, or sometimes the curse, of a very sensitive sense of smell, I wanted to create blends that were not only beneficial to people’s well-being but most importantly that smelled amazing. I wanted to fool the skeptics and simply allow people to enjoy the benefits of beautifully blended essential oils.
With the help of Arline, a certified aromatherapist and founder of Smell This here in Vancouver, we came up with five unique essential oil blends that I called “Moment Blends“. Moment blends because they were inspired by moments in which I love using essential oils to bring me back to the present moment and to my breath. I made them in spritz or fine mists to spray on linens or in a room. In roll-ons for people on the go and that you can safely apply to the skin. In pure blends to use in a diffuser or in a relaxing bath.
Did You Know That Rudraksha Are Natural Diffusers for Essential Oils?
I had been using Rudraksha Mala beads and essential oils separately for a few years by now, but when I was in Bali and met up with Soma, the founder of Aum Rudraksha Designs with whom I co-designed the Mala necklaces and bracelets, I told her about the “Moment Blends” that I was working on back in Vancouver. That’s when she revealed to me that Rudraksha are actually natural diffusers and they love to be oiled. In that moment, my eyes opened wide and my jaw dropped. Really!
To my surprise she went on to explain that Rudraksha Mala beads just like Lava beads, are porous. You can apply a few dabs of your favourite essential oil on them and the aroma will slowly diffuse as you are meditating or simply wearing them as an aromatherapy necklace or bracelet. Pure essential oils will completely evaporate within a few hours but if they are blended with a carrier oil like coconut oil, you can simply wash your Rudraksha Mala beads with a natural soap and warm water before applying another essential oil blend. As simple as that! Use them separately or together, have fun experimenting what works for you.
