Whether you’re moving to a new space or office, vacationing in an Airbnb, or simply want to energetically revive your current digs, this House of Intuition-curated smudging kit—it includes an abalone shell, sage, charcoal tablets, a candle, matches, sea salt, and incense—is a fantastic ritual to clear a space energetically and to create new beginnings. Sage, charcoal, salts, and incense are all believed to have negative-energy dispelling powers, while abalone shells were used in Native American spiritual ceremonies for centuries as a source of vibrational healing; they’re also thought to help cleanse the chakras. Bundled into one set, these exquisite elements make a spectacular gift—or stash it away for yourself when not-so-nice vibes feel a little too pervasive.
1. Pour the salt into the abalone shell, and place either the charcoal tablet or the sage bundle on top; light.
2. If you’re using the charcoal, wait a few minutes for it to smolder and turn light gray, then put the incense directly atop the tablet to get it burning.
3. Holding the abalone shell, walk around to repel any bad energy. When you’ve hit every spot, place the shell down and set an intention as you light the candle.
4. Let the euphoric calm sink in.
