Each smudge kit contains:
- White Sage Smudge Stick
- Large Abalone Shell
- Palo Santo
- Tumbled Stones: Black Agate, Green Aventurine, Citrine
- Quartz Point
- Black Obsidian
How to Burn Sage:
1. Light the sage smudge stick with a match.
2. As the sage smudge smoulders, move through each space you are wishing to cleanse while speaking your intentions. Use the abalone shell to collect any ashes that may fall. It is normal to need to relight the smudge every so often.
3. Once you have wafted smoke into each area you are wishing to smudge, return to a central area, and extinguish the smudge.
