Incenses meaning and uses in rituals and witchcraft

Incenses are very important items in Witchcraft. The smoke they created is capable of inducing different feelings, purifying environments, purifying and protecting environments, purifying objects during the consecration, and more. In this post, we’ll see the main incenses meaning and their usage in rituals and witchcraft.

We can’t prove when incenses were created, but we know for sure that ancient civilizations like the Egyptian and the Hindu already used them in rituals. One theory tries to explain the importance of them stating that Goddesses and Gods lived outside de Earth and only the smoke created by fire was capable of reaching them. Hence, herbs started to be burned and then the incenses were created.

Anyway, incenses are used until today and not only during rituals but also for welfare.

    • Hi, Carol! Thank you for your comment!

      I’ll try this mixture of sandalwood, patchouli, and frankincense too. Thank you for the hint!


  3. Frankincense, Myrrh & Dragon’s Blood. Individually I adore them, but combined are divine. Especially when you consider how well there singular magical properties compliment each other. The combinations scent is also simply wonderful & great for meditation.

    • Hello, Nora! Yes, I do.

      All you need control it is your own power and mind. If you’re starting now, start by meditating and getting to know yourself better. Then you can start working with the Moon energy. Then start casting some simple spells. You’ll see it’s pretty natural and easy 😀
