you can use sound. Use a rattle or drum and smudge yourself with sound beginning at your head and going to your feet.Afterwards flick off any engery clinging to the instrument and ground this energy in the earth.

( if appropriate to the materials the tool is made from), smoke or incense, and food left out in an area for the spirit of the medicine tool. Same goes for the Wiccan Path.
Making an Offering Altar
Keep in mind when you are honoring the spirit of your medicine tool you are giving love and thanks to the spirit or energy of the tool. It is impotant to be respectful of the medicine tool, but to remember you are not idolizing the physical shell of the tool. What is being acknowledge through this form of prayer and offering is the energy and life force that sends breath, healing, and life viameans of the medicine tool.

my prayers for you as you wok the Medicine wheel tools is to go shinning, toward your enlightened path, towards the healing that needs to be brought forth towards the light of the Creator and the Earth Mother.
