Incense has long had associations with magick and witchcraft, as indeed it is used commonly by many other religions. The use of Incense in witchcraft is threefold:
- It conditions the mind by stimulating our sense of smell.
In connection with spells, it draws down the spirits through its magickal
association with the elements of Air.
According to ancient beliefs, when a spell is done, it raises the spell up
into the ether and sends it on its way.
In magick, the type of incense used needs to correspond with the nature of the spell being worked. Most spells require incense associated with a particular planet or deity. Many are used for their purification and cleansing properties during ritual.
