Abalone Shells are often used in smudging rituals, not only because they are practical (to catch hot cinders that fall from smudge sticks), but also because they are a beautiful gift straight from the ocean.
These shells are thick and shimmer with the gorgeous iridescent colors of mother-of-pearl.
They hold the energy of the ocean and bring a strong calming and healing energy, allowing you to remain connected to the sea – even when you are landlocked.
Including abalone shells in your smudging rituals means you are incorporating all four of the earth’s elements: the shell represents water, the smoke represents air, the unlit herbs or sticks represent earth and once they’re lit they represent fire.
By incorporating the elements into your smudging ritual, you’re inviting Mother Earth to be the focus of your ceremony. It is here, in the space created by Her, that transformations and manifestations have space to occur.
Our shells are commercial grade with natural imperfections.
6 inches to 6-1/2 inches each.
Sustainability: We receive our abalone shells from a U.S.-based farm. They are not caught from the wild. The supply is sustainable and does not harm any natural habitat or wild abalones.
