Abalone is used in traditional smudging ceremonies. These natural shells are the perfect size and shape for holding a sage wand as it burns. They keep the wand from dropping burning cinders and are shallow enough that they don't put it out. The element of water displayed by the abalone is a perfect compliment to the fire of the smudge bundle. As you carry the shell, you can waft the smoke using a feather or your hand.
Known for calming overstimulated or erratic emotional states, abalone was revered for thousands of years and believed to encourage psychic and intuitive abilities as well as dream work and astral travel.
