"Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step."
The Abalone Shell (known in New Zealand as paua) are the shell of choice when smudging, because they catch the hot cinders that fall away from the smudging stick after it has burnt.
Mother Earth got it right! Abalone shells are a thick seashell which shimmers with the gorgeous iridescent colours of mother-of-pearl. We also have some mesmerising rainbow abalone shells in stock. Abalone shells hold the energy of the ocean and bring a strong calming and healing energy, allowing you to remain connected to the sea.
You can use the Abalone Shell to catch the embers of your smudge stick, or place the herbs on a lit charcoal tablet. When using charcoal tablets, the bowl or shell should be filled with sand or a flat stone to prevent overheating the container.
