***** Abalone Shells
By Virgo Organics
Artistry & Nature Combined
The Abalone Shell is said to enhance feelings of peace, compassion and love. It has a lovely warm, gentle vibration. It is great in times of tough emotional issues, soothing the nerves and encouraging a calm demeanour. It is said to gently help open our psychic and intuitive connections.
One of the main reasons abalone shells are used with spiritual alignment...
The "Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing" is a powerful Native American cleansing technique. It is a ritual to remove negativity. Smoke attaches itself to the negative energy and removes it to another space. Cleansing is the word traditionally used, but you can think of it as a shift in energy from any bits of negativity to a more positive, peaceful state. Smudging can be used to cleanse an object, a place, or your spirit, mind or body. Native Americans often use smudging in association with other ceremonies. The abalone shell symbolizes the water.
You can also use abalone (Paua) shells for a beautiful and unique way to display jewelry, crystals, candy, loose herbs, resins, and more! 🐚🌺
*** Tip: To protect your shell from burn marks when using it for smudging, place salt or sand inside the shell to extinguish smudge sticks.
✨🐚✨ New Sizing Options!
~ Approx. 5.5" - 6"
~ Approx. 6.25" - 7"
*As a natural item, please allow for slight variations. Also please note that if you choose the "stand only" option, you will not receive a shell.
✨ These larger shells can comfortably fit a smudge stick (or a charcoal disk), a Palo Santo stick, and a few large crystals all at the same time! 🙌✨🌛
✨ All by hand, my husband and I carefully clean, grind, sand, and polish each and every shell. Though we come from different tribes, our love for the abalone lives deep within us. No harsh chemicals are used in the process. 🌿 For the bottoms, we remove large crustaceans, then add a protective polish. We choose to leave the bottoms the natural color as we appreciate the rustic vibe and authenticity for its purpose.
✨ Made by nature, no two shells will ever look exactly alike.
Please view the photos to see the possible color variations.
The shells in the photos have been sold, so unfortunately we can't match the exact same one to an order. Again, please note these are a natural item, the colors and the sizing will vary.. though each one we work hard to ensure it's iridescent, colorful, shiny, and beautifully unique! 🌺✨🐚
It is tradition that the shell will choose you.
✨ 6" Hand-carved wooden shell stands are available in the drop down menu. These stands are sturdy & are the perfect fit for these larger shells. Depending on availability, the color of the wooden stand will vary.
✨ Tip: If you use the shell to burn charcoal discs for resin incense or for smudge sticks, make sure to add a stand and to have a decent layer of sand or salt underneath so that the heat does not damage your shell. It works lovely for this purpose and gives off an authentic, positive vibe when burning incense or herbs!
✨ Our abalone shells are harvested in Mexico and New Zealand under regulated waters by license fisherman who adhere to strict sustainability regulations to ensure no over-harvesting is done. For all shells harvested, the Abalone interior animal is used in the local food industry... nothing goes to waste. 💚🌿
Have you noticed waiting lists are now being offered for these shells or how their just simply out of stock? Unfortunately this pandemic has taken a toll on fisherman, just like the rest of us. These shells may not be available in bulk as they were before, until possibly next summer if we're lucky. What we have is all we have left and we went to a great deal of measure to get these. Please cherish these sacred smudging shells as they deserve. Pilamaya (thank you)!
I hope the world heals soon. 🙏🏼💞

• The more thoroughly a soap bar can dry out between uses, the longer it will last. Make sure to use a soap saver or soap dish so that your soap can dry out between uses. Don't allow your soap to sit in a puddle of water or let the shower pour down on it. For soap saver trays and pouches, please visit our shop.
• Softer water usually makes your soap last longer because the soap lathers more quickly so you don't have to rub it as much.
• A person who uses a washcloth, sea sponge, or a different lathering aid will use less soap than one who rubs the soap directly over the skin.
Yes we do. PLEASE contact me if you have ANY questions or need a certain product made without certain ingredients & I will do my best to accommodate you.
