Metaphysical Properties of Incense


Depositphotos_27619041_l-2015The use of incense dates back to ancient times. Ancient transcripts from as far back as 1800 BC speak of the use of incense in ceremony and spiritual practice. The burning of incense, along with the aromatherapy characteristics of the oils in the incense, is beneficial in energetic cleansing, opening up the chakras, and reaching a higher state of consciousness. The ambiance of burning incense is comforting and peaceful.
Here at Smudge we carry a large variety of incense, for every purpose. You can choose your own mix bag from our Canadian made selection from B.C., or you can choose from some very popular boxed incense from around the world. We also carry ceremonial incense formulated with hoodoo and voodoo magical oil blends.
You can simply burn incense and do a simple spell, dedicating an intention on a specific purpose. You can cleanse your sacred space in preparation for spiritual ceremony or spell work. Enhance your meditation by burning incense to clear and enhance your energy and chakras.
