These Lion Paw Shells are strong and heavy shell, and perfect for burning sage & smudge sticks and other botanicals. It is wise to insulate the bottom of the shell with a minimum of 2 inches of sand or ash to protect the shell against high temperatures. They are ideal for burning sweetgrass and sage or indirect burning incense such as resin.
Place a few dried sage pieces or sweet grass in the bottom of the shell with the sand, ignite then blow out flame and the sage or grass will release a cloud of white, purifying smoke.
Shells measure approximately 5-6" in size.
