Tulasi is a soft, fibrous wood that is susceptible to moisture and temperature damage. These beads can warp and crack if exposed to humidity, water, or a lot of direct heat and sunlight. It is popular for user to oil their Tulasi beads prior to use, and to keep them clean and dry. Vaisnavas also respect their japa mala beads and do not take them into environments such as restrooms. Traditionally, they are kept and used in a japa bag, also available.
