These can be burned in their natural state on self lighting
charcoal, or crushed and made into stick or cone incense.
Censing, which represents the element of air, exorcises and keeps
unwanted energies away from the magic site; offers sweet air to
the God and Goddess; raises vibrational rates and summons
energies; relaxes the senses; and contains and concentrates power.
The act of burning incense or other substances is also known as
"carrying our wishes" up to the God and Goddess. For Centuries,
people have recognized the powerful links between fragrance and
the mind. And, for centuries, they've used pure essential oils to
conjure hidden stores of emotions and images. Today, Science has
confirmed that essential oils, the aromatic essence of leaves,
bark, roots and flowers, can enhance our moods, sharpen our minds,
and awaken our physical selves.
