Red Sandalwood

Sandalwood symbolizes protection, vitality, relaxation, healing, balance and spiritual devotion.

One of the reasons why Sandalwood is considered a symbol of protection is because the inner trunk (heartwood) of this tree has a leathery quality to it and cannot be eaten by termites or other insects. Termites tend to eat the outer layer (sapwood) but the inner layer (heartwood) remains intact. Other than this, sandalwood is also said to have a powerful energy to it that is associated with raising your vibration and offering powerful protection against negative energy.

In Hinduism, sandalwood is linked to wealth and prosperity as it is believed that Goddess Lakshmi (the Goddess of wealth and prosperity) lives in the sandalwood tree. In fact, the sandalwood tree is known as ‘Sriganda’ which translates to ‘The scent that is dearest to the Goddess‘.

Blue Indigo

Indigo is a deep, vibrant blue color that is often associated with spirituality and inner truth. It is often referred to as a “sixth chakra” color, and it is associated with intuition, insight, and heightened awareness. Indigo is believed to be a bridge between the physical and spiritual realms; it is said to be a color of transformation, helping one to tap into one’s inner wisdom and uncover hidden truths.

Indigo has been used in many different cultures throughout history. In Ancient Egypt, it was used to represent all things sacred, and was often worn by royalty and those of high social standing. In India, it is believed that the color indigo brings luck and abundance. In the Middle Ages, it was used to dye the robes of monks and nuns, and even today it is still used to dye the robes of Buddhist monks and nuns.

Indigo is also believed to have healing and calming properties. Its dark blue hue is thought to bring balance, peace, and inner strength. It is often used as a color for meditation, as it is believed to help one to connect with their inner self and open up to deeper understanding.

Golden Turmeric

Turmeric was used much more extensively by the natives of India than today. Turmeric was highly valued by the ancient Indo-European people not only for its preservation properties, but for its energetic and spiritual qualities as well. The Arya culture was a group of people who worshipped the solar system and the sun as a deity. Turmeric was very sacred to them, due to its golden yellow color (like sunlight) and they believed it had special protective properties Remnants of this belief still exist today, particularly in South India, where some people wear a dried turmeric rhizome bead the size of a large grape around their neck or arm. This is an ancient talisman tradition used to ward off evil and grant to the wearer healing and protection.

People of ancient India believed that turmeric contained the energy of the Divine Mother, helped to grant prosperity, cleanse the chakras (energy centers in the body), and purify the channels of the subtle body. Even today, Hindu people consider turmeric to have auspicious qualities, and use it in many sacred ceremonies. It is commonly made into a paste and applied to the forehead (ajna chakra or third eye) during pujas (devotional ceremonies) and weddings. Traditionally, turmeric was also used to dye the marriage clothing.
