Carolyn Synder is a full time momma yet her side hustle, running CAROmalas, is THRIVING. Carolyn’s company makes custom mala beads.
“Each mala is created in a conscious and prayerful way. I cleanse and sage the beads before hand-knotting each one. The tassel is created from 7 loops of string for each of the chakras and wrapped 5 times for the elements: earth, air, fire, water and ether. Knots at the guru bead represent the balance and connection of each side of the body and knots at the tassel give reverence to the sun, moon & earth.”
