Abalones are characterized by several open respiratory pores in a row near the shell's outer edge. The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre, which in many species is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong changeable colors which make the shells attractive to humans as decorative objects, jewelry, and as a source of colorful mother-of-pearl.




Many cultures think of the abalone shell as a symbol of water as its calmness and tranquility protect us from life's unsettling passions and wash away any unpleasantness therefore shielding us from the darkness.  The use of abalone shells in smudging dates back to ancient indigenous cultures who used the shells to hold the burning herbs or plants.  The shells were often chosen for their durability, as they were able to withstand the heat of the fire without breaking.  Additionally, the shells were seen as sacred objects, representing the connection between the earth and the ocean.  Burning sage clears away negative thoughts and energies while it harmonizes the mind, enhances intuition and inspires feelings of love.  




♡ Hold your smudge stick at an angle downwards away from your body and light the tip.

♡ Allow the smoke to travel freely around the area or person you are smudging.

♡ Place the smudge stick safely on an Abalone shell ensuring it catches all ash and embers.
