This smudging kit contains 7" white sage (salvia apiana), barred turkey feather, and abalone shell. White sage is considered a sacred herb for cleansing, purifying, protection, wisdom, and prosperity. Smudge kits are used to remove negative energy and can help disenfect a room. Afterwards, you're left with a purified spirit. Burn the white sage while catching the ashes in the abalone, and use the feather to disperse the smoke and combine the human aura, helping to restore balance. The process highlights the 4 elements- fire with lighting the sage, abalone from water, feather disperses smoke in the air, and the ash returns to the earth.
