White Sage Smudge Kit With Abalone Shell This handy smudge kit comes complete with, 1 abalone shell, 1 carved wooden cobra tripod stand to hold your shell, and 1 bundle of 3" California White Sage. The perfect set to start you on the path to cleansing and clearing energy. How to perform a sage smudging ceremony with this kit - It's easy! First light the white sage bundle and let the end burn for a bit and then blow it out. The bundle will continue to smoke if lit properly. If it doesn't, you must go back to step one and relight. Once you have the bundle smoking nicely start wafting the smudge stick and rotating it in a counter clockwise motion throughout the space you are cleansing. This counter clockwise motion helps to clear the energy. You may also want to speak soothing words or a mantra such as "positive energy dwells freely throughout this space" or play soft meditation music in the background to enhance the effects of the ceremony. Once you feel confident that the energy has been sufficiently cleared to your liking (this can take several minutes or more) go back through the space, this time wafting the smoke in a clockwise direction to recharge and uplift the energy that was just cleansed. Collect the ash and embers along the way from the smoldering white sage smudge stick in the abalone shell that is included in this kit. You can perform this sage cleansing ceremony as often as necessary until the vibe in the space feels clear and uplifted.
