Sacred Incense Spells
DIVINE MONEY SPELLS by William Oribello

Since ancient times, incense has been burned as a deity offering, spiritual cleansing, mood setting, or for magickal purposes. The Bible says in Exodus 30:1, "Thou shalt make an Altar to burn Incense on." History tells us that incense has been used as a sacrifice to the Deity, as a demonifuge to drive away evil spirits, and because people believe that it will bring good luck and enable them to gain their desires in love, money matters and other forms of magickal workings.

Our mental state and emotions can be profoundly affected by scents and fragrances. They can stimulate, calm, and regularize. To calm reduce anxiety, stress, and fear, we use incense that has a direct and relaxing influence on the psyche.

Burn incense in the evening, while listening to soft background music and candlelight, relaxing as all your tensions and troubles dissipate along with the fragrant smoke. Incense can also have stimulating as well as revitalizing effects, and may be helpful in strengthening our potential and energy when we feel weak, discouraged, or exhausted.

The practice of burning incense to accompany invocations, prayers and spells is particularly favored by practitioners of Divine Money Spells. In addition, if a spell involves a person far away, incense may be burned to "carry" the wish or desire to him or her. Incense if particularly good to help carry a spell across running water, which has a tendency to "carry" the energies of a spell away from who it was intended.

When incense is burned prior to magickal workings, fragrant smoke also purifies the surrounding area of negative and disturbing vibrations. Though such purification is not usually necessary, it does help create the appropriate mental state necessary for the successful practice of magick. When the incense is smoldered in a ritual setting it undergoes a transformation. The vibrations, no longer trapped in their physical form, are released into the environment. Their energies, mixing with those who use them, speed out to effect the changes necessary to the manifestation of the magickal goal.

The oldest and most original incenses used by mankind have been tree resins and herbs or woods that burn with a fragrant smoke. Typical herbal incenses include sage and tobacco, much favored by Native Americans and those who follow their traditions.

Sage is typically utilized in the form of wrapped and tied smudge sticks, while tobacco is burned in a ceremonial pipe. The best-known wood chip incense is the rare and expensive sandalwood, which is made of finely shaved chips of the tree of the same name. Resin incenses, which are granular lumps of dried tree sap, include the Biblical frankincense and myrrh as well as Benzoin and Copal, the latter a very special holy incense of the Mayan Indians of Central America.

Resins are often burned in mixtures, the light scent of golden frankincense combining beautifully with richly musky myrrh and sharply aromatic Benzoin. Another favorite mixture is cleansing camphor and purifying pine resin. There are two types of incense that are used in magick: the combustible and the noncombustible. The former contains potassium nitrate (saltpeter) to aid in burning, while the latter does not. Therefore, combustible incense can be burned in the form of bricks, cones, sticks and other shapes, whereas noncombustible incense must be sprinkled onto glowing charcoal blocks to release its fragrance.


Of all of the methods featured in this book, incense magick, when used with Bible verses, is probably the easiest to practice. The fragrant smoke from your incense actually does a lot of your work for you in settling your mind to focus on what you want to accomplish. As well, the type of incense that you use can be entirely your personal preference. Certain types of incense can be used for various magickal desires, but for example, if you associate strawberry incense with love and romance, then by all means use strawberry incense when doing a love spell. If you cannot make up your mind, sandalwood incense is an excellent all-purpose incense that will be effective with any kind of magick spell.

As always, before you start your magick, place yourself in a quiet location so you won't be disturbed for about a half an hour. Relax and light your incense, envision the smoke rising as a caressing hand. Allow the incense to encircle your body and infuse your spirit with its wisdom and knowledge. Meditate on what you want your spell to accomplish and visualize how you will feel when your spell does its work. When you feel energized and ready, read your verse out loud three times. You can perform this spell for three days, wait three weeks, and try again if the spell does not take.
