Incense magick is an archaic art that has been used for thousands of years since the days of ancient cultures including Egypt, India, China, Tibet, Japan, Europe, Native American Indians, Mayan, and Inca just to name a few. People use incense for different purposes ranging from religious ceremony to spiritual practices, meditation and relaxation, to practice yoga, to encourage emotional release, to get inspired, to heighten your awareness, to enhance concentration and focus, to stimulate creativity, increase motivation, boost confidence, heighten sexual desire, to heal, to prevent infections, relieve headaches, fight depression, reduce anxiety and tension, to help with insomnia, to soothe, and for magick spells and rituals. It is burned to carry prayers to the Gods, and to create a pleasing environment for humans to meet with Deity. If you are serious about using incense in your spiritual practices, then it is important to consider selecting specific ingredients based on their known properties. You can do a little bit of research on what your purpose or intention is and discover which type of incense resins or herbs you should work with.
Incense magick use is varied. It is burned during magick to promote ritual consciousness, the state of mind necessary to rouse and direct personal energy. When burned prior to magical workings or psychic experiments, fragrant smoke also purifies the altar and the surrounding area of negative, distrubing vibrations. Specifically formulated incenses are burned to attract specific energies to aid in charging personal power with the ritual's goal, eventually creating the necessary change.
