Abalone Smudging Shell
ABALONE SMUDGING SHELL
Traditionally, Abalone Shells are used as a representation of water, bringing in all four elements to your smudging practice, as follows...
Abalone shell - Water
Sage or Sand - Earth
Lit Sage - Fire
Smoke - Air
Abalone Shells help to catch ashes and hot cinders from the lite bundle as you move about your space or ceremony in your smudging practice. Also helpful to hold a charcoal tablet when burning.
It is recommended that sand be placed on the bottom of the shell to assist with the heat from the lit smudge. Be mindful that some Abalone Shells have natural occurring holes in the shell.
