ABALONE SHELL :
The abalone shell follows the Native American belief that mother-of-pearl bearing shells and smudging is a powerful combination that brings them closer to the heavens.
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 represent earth and once they’re lit they represent fire.
Smudging holds an important place in Native American Spiritual Healing. The smoke was believed to disperse impurities allowing the healing process to commence. As the smoke rose it was believed that prayers would also rise to the Spirit World and negative thoughts and emotions were lifted away.
Juniperus Communis is an evergreen tree native to cool, temperate parts of North America, Europe, and Asia. Native Americans used juniper berries for medicinal purposes and also burned the berries to cleanse and purify the air.
