Mini Abalone Shell

Mini Abalone Shell

Abalone comes from a large mollusk shell that is found in the shallow coastal waters. Usually, the material is brown to grey hue. It is known for its iridescent rainbow that shows different colors depending on the angle.

 

Abalone shells are only found around the coast of New Zealand.

Abalone helps one become more in tune with their intuition to better express creativity. Often, abalone shells are used as a vessel for cleansing in a smudging ritual. Sage is burned inside the shell as an offering, therefore, Abalone represents Inventiveness and Offerings.

 

Abalone shells have been used for many years as a bowl to burn sage, wood, or sweet grass. They are also used for crafts, home decorating and used in jewelry.  

 

Due to the unique nature of each shell, your item may vary slightly from the picture shown.

Smudging ceremonies using herbs, resins, Palo Santo Wood and incense are a custom of many indigenous cultures throughout the world, including indigenous peoples. Traditionally used in rituals, ceremonies and for spiritual purification, house blessings and spiritual cleansing. The smoke is believed by many to cleanse either a space or the body and aura, drive away negative energy and help reconnect with mother earth. Make sure the room where you are smudging is well ventilated. Open all the doors and windows. This is essential to not only drive out the negative energies (provide them with a route out) but also as a health precaution.

Please Do not use it if you suffer from Asthma or have respiratory issues. Do not use near infants or young children or anyone who is or may be pregnant. Do not leave burning smudge unattended! If you are just starting out with smudging don't be too worried about which instructions are 'correct' or 'work best'. Do what works best for you and 'feels right’ for you. Your 'intention' is a key component of the ritual so be clear on what you want to achieve and keep that in mind as you perform the ritual. At the end of the ceremony make sure the stick is extinguished. You can crush the end in sand, dirt, or abalone shell, place the cover of the pot over it or simply place the stick in the open water container. Just be sure the stick is extinguished before it is left.
