The Abalone Shell is a beautiful, traditional vessel in which herbs and smudges can be burnt. The shell is great for leaning burning sticks in while they are burning and also with the addition of sand or earth can be then used to help extinguish them afterwards. Also loose herbs or the broken ends of smudge sticks can be placed in the shell for burning, again with or without sand or earth.
It would work well with the Triple Goddess Smudge stick, during a self-care ritual, such as yoni steaming, Yoni Wand exploration and/or self massage.
(Please do not leave burning smudge sticks unattended. If in doubt, just place the stick, that you think has gone out, outside where you can retrieve it later).
