Saraswati (also Sarasvati) is the Hindu goddess of learning, wisdom, music, and aesthetics.

She is also known as Bharati (eloquence), Shatarupa (existence), Vedamata ('mother of the Vedas'), Brahmi, Sarada, Vagisvari, and Putkari. As Vac, she is the goddess of speech.

Saraswati first appears in the Rigveda and, in later religious texts, she is identified as the inventor of Sanskrit and, appropriately, gives Ganesha the gifts of pen and inks.

She is also a patron of the arts and sciences, and the wife of Brahma, even if the Bengal Vaisnavas considered her first the wife of Vishnu.

Sarasvati is also worshipped as the goddess of learning in Jainism and by some Buddhist sects.


Saraswati's name means 'elegant', 'flowing', and 'watery' and this is indicative of her status as one of the early Aryan boundary rivers.

The Saraswati River (modern name: Sarsuti), just like the Ganges River, flows from the Himalaya and is considered a sacred source of purification, fertility, and good fortune for those who bathe in her waters.

The sacred river, again like the Ganges, then developed into a personified deity.

She has her own festivals, notably the Saraswati Puja, held on the first day of spring.

During the festival, worshippers wear yellow, which is associated with wisdom and prosperity.

Statues of the goddess are also draped in yellow silk, and believers pray for blessings on their pens, books, and musical instruments.

Children are taught to write for the first time during the festival, Brahmin priests are given fine food, and ancestors are venerated.

Saraswati is also worshipped along with other major goddesses in the pan-Indian celebration of Navaratri.

As the patron of music, she is frequently prayed to by musicians before concerts and, as a goddess of intellectual pursuits, by students before examinations.


Some Hindus believe all creatures were born from the union of Brahma and Sarasvati starting with Manu, the first man.

More specifically, Saraswati's son is the rishi (sage) Sarasvata.

He, nourished by the bountiful waters of his mother, was able to withstand the Great Drought of Hindu mythology and so survive as the definitive repository of the Vedas sacred texts.

In Hindu art, Saraswati is usually depicted as a graceful youth with white skin.

She most often wears a white sari (which symbolises purity) which has a blue border.


Frequently represented in figure sculpture on temples, the goddess may be accompanied by either her husband or a peacock, her traditional assistant.

As with many Hindu deities, Saraswati is often depicted with four arms, each holding a symbolic object.

In the left hands she can carry a palm-leaf manuscript and ritual water vessel.

In the upper right hand she holds a white lotus flower while the lower right hand typically performs the varada mudra, the traditional gift-giving gesture of Hinduism.

Another object commonly seen in Saraswati's hands is the vina (the Hindu classical music instrument) which reminds of her gift of music to humanity.

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?

Welcome to Pure Perfume

Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.

u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".

Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!

• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!

Botanical Perfume FAQ's

• Keep products in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight
• Avoid using near the eyes or other sensitive areas
• Do not take internally
• Keep out of reach of children and pets
• Our products are 100% free of synthetic ingredients.
• All base products used are USDA Certified Organic and also are Non-GMO

As this is pure perfume, only a drop or two is needed. The organic botanical alcohol is NOT drying like the alcohol used in mass marketed perfumes. The EDP's (Eau de Parfum) come in convenient spray bottles.

Mine Rough Stones and Crystals

Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.

ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.

One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".

If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.

Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
