Why are abalone shells used so frequently in smudging rituals?  Aside from the practical bowl-shape to catch hot embers, all four elements are represented. The shells are seen a a gift from the sea (water); the raw herbs represent earth; the lit wood or herbs fire, and the smoke created and released is air.
