Straight from Morocco! I picked up these beautiful capsules made of thuya wood while visiting Morocco. They are a wonderful way to store your Mala as this wood has been used since the days of Solomon and David when it was called thyine wood. Thuya is one of the few kinds of wood mentioned in the Bible, referenced by John in the Book of Revelation. Popular during King David’s reign, it became a favorite among the cultural aristocracy. The Greeks named it Thuya, meaning sacrifice because they used an oil distilled from it as incense in their religious ceremonies. Some churches still use it today. As sandarac oil, Tetraclinis articulata oil is valued for medicinal uses. This special wooden capsule makes for a lovely way to travel with your Mala or other special jewels.
