Here is a newly created Vegan Altar Kit which features a one of a kind artisan manzanita burl stand.
This burl has a Scarab laser engraved artwork on it.
The burls are from Eastwood’s Manzanitas which are well known for their unique grain and vibrant spectrum of color. These burls are the product of severe weather as well as brush clearing near our mountain Sanctuary. We retrieve the manzanita that has fallen, laying out in nature.
These are VEGAN in that no animal product of any sort is involved with our kits.The manzanita is finished with many layers of all natural plant based Tung Oil and citrus based finish.
Each manzanita ART stand is unique, one of a kind. The stand can be used for smudges and also as a stand to hold a small sculpture or perhaps a crystal rock garden.
Manzanita burl is the perfect wood for a smudge stand due to its fire resistant properties.
(Abalone is an animal and it is endangered! Therefore we do not believe in using abalone shells for smudging. Furthermore – same thing with eagle feathers!)
We include with this altar kit:
The one of a kind scarab art manzanita burl stand
1 Cedar and Lavender Smudge, 4-5 inches tall1 Selenite Wand 3-5 inches
1 lQuartz crystal
An organza bag to carry everything.
Cedar is often used in sweat lodge ceremonies. The smoke of burning cedar is said to attract good spirits and eliminate negative energies.Within the blessed smudge stick is a super charged Quartz Crystal (imagine how powerful this is!)
Lavender connects with Spiritual Awareness, for meditation, to help with fears, and for Acceptance. It helps facilitate altered states of consciousness. And, Lavender is a symbol of Truth, Equality, and Joy.Selenite calms and soothes, bringing a deep sense of tranquility. Meditating with Selenite aids in access to past and future lives. Selenite brings mental clarity, clearing confusion and revealing the bigger picture behind any problem.Clear quartz helps to elevate your consciousness and bring clarity into your life. It is clear light, cleansing and purifying energy fields.
The CRYSTAL SMUDGE is an original concept by San Aset, and she has been creating these for friends and family for almost 20 years. These smudges create an energy unlike any other smudge and have been used at births, weddings, holidays and in memorial services.
Each smudge is different and the pictures here represent how they look. We don’t have a huge inventory of pre-made smudges and burl stands. And each manzanita burl stand is UNIQUE, one of a kind. All of our Iseum Sanctuary ceremonial items are made with great care, positive intention, and blessed with loving nature.
These are actual pictures of the Bast House Temple, the lavender field, and smudges in the process of being created. Each smudge and all the crystals have been blessed in the Bast House by Ankh-sen-Aset (see picture). Bast (also known as Bastet) is the ancient Egyptian Goddess of protection and cats. Re, our Mau Cat, is meditating in the Bast House, with happy cat thoughts.
