Mala dedicated to the Goddess Oshun Mala dedicated to the Goddess Oshun
A mala dedicated to the Brazilian Macumba Goddess of Sensuality, Sweetness, Love and Beauty, Oshun.

Oshun is the youngest of the Orisha sisters, born of Olodumare, Creatrix of this and other universes. The Orishas are akin to demi-gods and were tasked by Olodumare to care for different aspects of the world and humanity. She is skilled in divination, which provides her with her knowledge and power.

'Oshún is the Orisha of sweetness, love and beauty. She is the embodiment of feminine grace, and is a flirtatious coquette. She is a generous and loving mother, but she can also quickly turn bitter if she is wronged. Once she is soured, she is unforgiving and unbending. Oshún can accomplish miracles untold. She is the youngest of the orishas and is depicted as a flirtatious, mixed-race woman dressed in yellow, gazing in a mirror.' (

Made with fairly-traded Imfibinga seeds (Zulu teething beads), a hand-dyed (with plant dye) bamboo silk tassel, a 22k gold tassel cap from Turkey, Citrine, Clear Quartz, yellow Jade, peach Sunstone and Rose Quartz all knotted on an amber nylon cord.

***I deliberately leave the tassel longer so that you can cut it to your desired length.***

Citrine: Carrying the power of the sun, Citrine does not hold negative energy, and never needs cleansing. It dispels anger and cleanses the aura. It energises, increases motivation, and heightens self-esteem, personal power, and creativity to align the Solar Plexus chakra. It brings happiness and generosity, promotes inner calm, and balances yin yang energy. Surrounding the Howlite markers are the Prehnite beads.

Quartz: Clear Quartz is the most powerful healing and energy amplifier. It absorbs, stores, releases, and regulates energy and is excellent for unblocking it. This stone works at a vibrational level, attuning itself to the specific energy requirements of the person needing healing. It takes the energy to the most perfect state possible, cleansing and enhancing the organs and subtle bodies to act as a deep soul cleanser.

Yellow Jade: Yellow Jade is energetic and stimulating but with a mellowness. It brings joy and happiness into your life and teaches you that all beings are connected. Yellow Jade aids meditation and visualisation, helping you to let go of material things, ego, selfishness and greed. This stone stimulates and heals the mental body to promote heightened awareness and compassion.

Sunstone: Sunstone instils a joyful outlook of life, helping you to restore and renew yourself when you need it the most. It is known to heighten intuition, clearing all the chakras and bringing in light and energy in order to let the real self shine through. Sunstone is known to relieve cartilage problems and general aches and pains.

Rose Quartz: A Yin stone, Rose Quartz aligns the heart chakra and encourages unconditional love of yourself, empathy and compassion for others and harnessing your creativity to live a life you love. It gently draws off negative energy and replaces it with loving vibes.
