Abalone Smudging Shell
Traditionally, smudging is a ritual performed prior to a ceremony to clear out any negative energies, thus creating a space suitable for healing and positive energies to emerge.
The Abalone shell is a natural product, which means that one shell is slightly larger than the other. There are small natural holes in it, which provide an excellent air supply. The shell is brightly colored with a beautiful pearly shine. The shell takes thousands of years to become a beautiful mother-of-pearl shell.
White sage is usually roasted in an abalone shell. Abalone shells are used for burning sage smudge sticks.
Sage is roasted in an Abalone shell to complete the four elements:
shell = water
lighting = fire
smoke = air
herbs = soil
