Among the various magical herbs that can be found in nature, saffron has been used for many centuries. Its field of action is truly vast and extends from love to healing, from happiness to lust, from strength to psychic powers. A plant that can truly satisfy many needs in today’s society.
Saffron is a male plant that comes from the sun. In fact, its main element is fire, but it can still help you enhance your psychic abilities, the ones driving Hekate’s energy and power.
It can also help you during some spellcasting, especially if you want to increase the love between you and another person and the same for lust.
Saffron incense helps psychic powers to predict the future and aids a speedy recovery in case of need.

Sticks or grains?
I love sticks and I think they are the best and most practical option to let the energy of incenses work effectivity, but if you want to use grains, you can rely on that. It’s your call and your practice, don’t forget that!

If you are going to use grains yes, an incense burner is a useful and important tool to burn your grains safely, but if you are going to use an incense stick you only need an incense holder.
