In cultures all around the world, springtime is known as the season of renewal, rejuvenation, and getting a fresh start. While any time of year is appropriate for setting new goals for yourself - whether spiritual, mental, or physical - many people are inspired by the newness of spring to start seeking positive changes. Watching plants come back to life, snow melt away, feeling temperatures rise, and hearing birds chirp, all instill a refreshing sense of opportunity and hope after a long winter.
The DharmaCrafts products on this list are intended to serve as inspiration and motivation for embracing new beginnings as you enter another spring season.

Here are a few of our spring incense sticks to purify your spaces with:
White Tara is one of the 21 forms of Bodhisattva Tara. In this form, she is associated with healing, prosperity, and purity. As you seek positive change in your life, burning this incense as an offering to White Tara will call upon her healing powers to help guide your path.
This premium Japanese Incense comes in 5 scents, each of which is inspired by a different natural element found on our planet: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. As you burn this incense in your meditation room, each of the unique fragrance blends helps to empower different aspects of your mind and soul. Sekishen, for example, takes inspiration from metallic elements and is an excellent incense for manifesting your goals.

Bringing the soft, sweet scents of spring indoors helps to cleanse the air of the heaviness of winter, while also inviting a sense of calmness.

For centuries, Hindus and Buddhists have used mala beads as a tool for prayer. Like a rosary, the individual beads on a strand of mala (typically 108 bead mala necklaces or 27 bead mala bracelets) are used to count mantras during meditation and prayer. Nowadays, malas are also popular in the general meditation community as a way to increase mindfulness and focus during meditation sessions.
At DharmaCrafts, we offer dozens of beautiful and unique malas made of various crystals and in multiple styles. The purpose and energy provided by your mala prayer beads varies depending on the materials used to craft the beads in your mala.
Here are a few of our malas beads that feature the best crystals for spring:
Moonstone is, overall, one of the best crystals for new beginnings because of its association with introspection, emotional balance, and soothing stress/ worry. This stunning iridescent stone comes in a myriad of colors, each of which possesses slightly different properties.
This gorgeous green mala features prehnite and olive quartz beads that both help balance the heart chakra - the body’s center for compassion, love, and forgiveness.
The prehnite stones in this mala help to promote unconditional love and healing in the wearer, while the olive quartz beads dotted in between help to encourage confidence and wisdom. When combined, these stones aid in letting go of negativity while moving towards a bright, new future.
Our striking red aventurine and jade mala features an orange and green color palette that is just as powerful as the energies possessed by these stones. The fiery aventurine on this mala bead necklace boosts the wearer’s confidence and courage in order to communicate effectively and help attain any goals, while the pastel green jade helps to keep the wearer grounded and compassionate.
The plethora of Zen garden sculptures we offer here at DharmaCrafts bring your garden to life with the protective and healing energies of various deities. As you prep your garden, yard, and other outdoor spaces for the spring and summer seasons, adding a few of these meditation garden statues will bring an air of calmness and positivity.
Our collection includes outdoor Buddha statues that help to bring good health and fortune to your home, graceful bodhisattva garden statues (such as Guanyin and Tara), charming sculptures of whimsical animals, sanguine monk statues, plus much more.
