Care & Precautions

Rudrakshas can be worn by all (Men, Women & Children) on a regular basis.

Rudrakshas should be taken off during sex, bowel movements, going to funerals and menstrual cycle. Rudrakshas should also be taken off while taking bath (as regular soap and water can dehydrate the beads) and while sleeping. Before wearing it again after taking a bath in the morning it is recommended to chant “Om NamahShivay” mantra 5 times.

The Rudraksha beads should be kept clean. The process for cleaning Rudrakshas is as follows: first they should be dipped in warm water overnight. Then they should be scrubbed thoroughly using a plastic brush (a new toothbrush can be used). Lastly, they should be washed with normal water and should be allowed to dry. After the beads have dried any vegetable oil has to be applied on the beads (using a small toothbrush). Thereafter Incense and Sandal paste can be offered and the seed mantra for the Rudraksha bead can be chanted. 

Rudrakshas are very strong beads and have a life span of hundreds of years and if maintained properly they can be handed over through generations.
