Sacred feather prayer fans are an ancient tradition that spans many cultures and nations. Sacred prayer fans are used to help dispatch prayers to the heavens, and are considered to hold great healing power. Sacred prayer fans can also be used when smudging or cleansing a space, to bless a person or space, to give gratitude, and during healing work.
Macaw feathers used in these fans are naturally shed from birds in a free-flighted aviary.

Smoky Citrine is an unusual and powerful stone. Quite literally a combination of Smoky Quartz and Citrine, which gives a subtle golden tone to the traditional Smoky Quartz color.
Note that the vibrant orange stone many know as Citrine is actually heat treated Amethyst. While this is also a lovely stone to work with, it does have a different energy than natural Citrine which is a more gentle golden color.
Each sacred prayer fan is handmade and just as no two feathers are alike so is every fan unique. Sacred prayer fans are a wonderful healing tool with a myriad of uses that can blend with any tradition or background.
Please note that all fans use domestic bird feathers, as it is illegal to sell or possess feathers from birds of prey.
