House blessing/protection incense in the square jar on the left, personal power incense next to it on the right.
A couple of weeks ago my circle met and we made incense for house blessing/protection. This time my incense had a much more modest ingredient list, only five different things:
Basil~ courage, love, protection, repels negativity, wealth; basil is also an old traditional housewarming gift
Cloves~ cleansing, purification, wards negativity, wealth
Lavender~ cleansing, purification, peace
Myrrh~ binding, protection, purification/consecration, wards negativity
Rosemary~ blessing, courage, love, health, protection, purification
I am trying to get my herb garden put together again so that I can once again be growing many of the herbs myself to use in incense, candle magic, etc. I still have some of my own calendula, lavender, chamomile and garden sage, but my stash is running low. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can soon afford to replace/replant them all and have a good growing season this year!
