If you purchase a bead bracelet or pendant, it is advisable that you remove it before you come into contact with water. If you don't, the wood's surface will appear dull with time. Coming into contact with water will not diminish the power of the wood, only it's look.
To care for your wood, follow these steps:
1 - Wipe it dry with a clean cloth. Squirt a small amount of polishing oil onto the cloth.
2 - Gently polish the beads or wood surface and sides with the oiled cloth. Put the wood aside to allow it to absorb the oil naturally.
Soon your Raja Kayu product will look new again. This method applies to all your Raja Kayu products. Be sure to use a cloth that is chemical free.
DO NOT place anything hot on top of the RK surface eg. mug of hot tea or candle etc. The heat will melt the resin content of the wood and this creates scaring on the surface. It won't diminish the power of the wood but it will lose its esthetic quality.
