i would like to make ladles out of my dipper gourds, they have been cleaned and dried for sometime, should i put a sealer on them? and if so, what should i use?

If you intend to make decorative ladles, you can seal them. Shellac is made of natural substance, disolved in alcohol. Or you can just use some oil (linsed) to seal it.
These are good as long as the ladle is not used.
