How to Strengthen Tulsi Beads
To make Tulsi products strong and long-lasting, you can soak them in oil. Mustard seed oil is typically used in India and Linseed oil has shown to be effective, though any nice quality vegetable oil could work.
For Larger beads you can soak them in oil for a few days. For Smaller beads or neck beads you can rub them liberally with oil. Then you can rub excess oil off the beads and put them out in sunshine for a day or so.
This process strengthens the beads nicely.
