3 most effective incenses when working with Aphrodite
Rose incense is wonderfully scented and acts on the heart chakra, opening us up to love and harmony. A rose gives a sense of deep happiness and joy and, moreover, it is an excellent aphrodisiac.
Therefore, the properties of natural rose incense are stimulating and energizing. You can use these incenses for meditation and reiki because acting on the heart chakra facilitates the centering and flow of energy.
This incense can create harmony and joy within your family, or an atmosphere of love and passion with your partner.
Musk incense is all about love, magnetism, success and magical powers. Musk is suitable for rituals of passion, attraction, love. It stimulates the spirit and knowledge, lifting us to reach our full potentials. It gives magnetism and charisma while propitiating success.
As myrtle is the symbol of Aphrodite, burning this incense can be a great offering to the goddess so that she can connect with you faster.

Why should I use incense for Aphrodite?
You should use incense to create a suitable and energetically welcoming environment where she can connect with you. You can also use incenses in your magical practices outside of meditation and cleansing! Let’s see you should use each incense to enhance the power of your witchcraft.
If you are going to cast a spell dedicated to Aphrodite, you can either experiment with the incenses you use or settle for one that resonates with the spell’s other ingredients. For beauty spells, I suggest you use rose incense, while for spiritual works musk incense will help to attract the people or things you desire.
Reconnecting with your feminine energy
If you need to reconnect with the feminine energy within you, praying to Aphrodite will help you find your ancestral femininity. This is enhanced as you pray while burning some rose incense. After that, make sure you take some time to bathe, buy something fancy for yourself and indulge in some TLC!
When should you use incense?
The best day of the week to use Aphrodite’s incense is a Friday, since this day is connected to love and beauty.
How to use it?
Burning incense is super easy. Light your chosen incense and let it burn while chanting a prayer for Aphrodite or when doing your own magical craft in her honor.
Sticks or grains?
I love sticks and I think they are the best and most practical option when burning incense, but if you want to use grains, you can! It’s completely up to you.
Do I need a burner?
If you are going to use grains, yes, I highly recommend using an incense burner to make sure you are being safe. If you want to use incense sticks instead, you don’t need a burner! For incense sticks, an incense holder is more than enough!
A prayer to chant while using incense for Aphrodite
If prayers are not your thing, you can skip this step. Alternatively, if you love prayers but these words don’t resonate with you and your craft, create your prayer to create an even deeper connection with the goddess.
Goddess of beauty
Goddess of love
Goddess of procreation
I am here for you, to honor you
I am here to be your humble vessel
Might your energy bless me
I embrace your energy
Guide my craft, bless my soul
So be it”
How to get rid of ashes after a session is done
When you are done burning the incense, you can blow the ashes away outside or you can bury them in a field to let the incense get back to earth. Do whichever you prefer!
Where can you buy incense for Aphrodite?
You can buy the incense wherever you want, but make sure the incenses are high quality so you can truly enjoy the properties of the incense while being safe too. Online, you can find plenty of cheap incenses but, before buying, try to learn more about the product’s manufacturing process.
In-person shopping is great for buying incenses as you can ask the storeowner for guidance regarding which incenses you should buy. They might even give you some ideas for your practice if they are a witch themselves! How beautiful is that?
