A smudging ceremony is the ancient ritual of burning plant resins or herbs in a bowl while intentions and prayers are called forth.
For centuries Native American and indigenous cultures have practiced smudging rituals to clear negative energy and invite in peace, kindness and harmony.
The smoke from the herbs or plant resins are formed using a feather or hand and directed like a spiritual cleansing bath surrounding the person or the space.
These bowls are decorated with 4 protea seed pods to honour the 4 directions and which hold the sacred patterns of the flower of life unique to the floral kingdom of the Cape of Good Hope.
These stones are to protect the base of the bowl from high heat from the coals.
