The scallop shell is the traditional emblem of Saint James the Greater and is popular with pilgrims on the Way of St James to the apostle's shrine at Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Used by the Native Northwest American Indians as a natural vessel for cleansing, offerings and prayers. Many paintings of Venus, the Roman goddess of love and fertility, included a scallop shell in the painting to identify her. Sage is one of the most cleansing and purifying herbs.
This smudge kit comes with two sage bundles, a large natural seashell vessel and complete instructions for use.
