Let’s get started.

You can also use Rose for her passionate side and Black Copal for her darker aspects.

In the past, Peony incense was attributed with magical properties such as driving out demons and warding off spells.

Its name was given to it by Theophrastus in honor of Peone, an ancient Greek deity of medicine who is said to have exploited the properties of the plant to heal Pluto and Mars.

This makes peony amazing for creating strong protective energy around you when looking for a way to connect with the ancestral forces.

Sandalwood incenses are believed to have a very high vibration, ideal for devotional and spiritual magic. Sandalwood has a calming, sedative effect and aids in meditation.

Ritual formulas are used for purification, consecration, relaxation, and peace. You can burn it when you do some spiritual work and are looking for ways to reconnect with your femininity and the strong spiritual alignment of your soul.

In all cultures, roses represent love, affection, loving inclination, and inner peace.

The proverbial delicacy and sweetness of the rose give its aroma an indisputable feminine predominance, yin. Nothing more than a rose could bring to mind the concept of beauty.

If we want to learn to accept ourselves and to be accepted by others, this is the best incense to use and the most effective.

It favors mental openness and love relationships. It helps us to understand things and also to forget. Its action clarifies ideas and fosters connection with others; it is also relaxing, antidepressant and aphrodisiac. Very suitable for blends with Sandalwood and various resins. It helps to strengthen the will, protects, purifies, and brightens the aura.

It is suitable for strong spirits as it will help you to express your feelings and emotions sincerely, with the detachment necessary to preserve your balance, spreads harmony and patience, creating atmospheres full of the joy of life. When it burns, it helps you accept yourself and distance yourself from painful memories.

Sticks or grains?

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

Do I need a burner?

If you are going to use grains yes, I highly recommend using an incense burner so you can burn the incense grains safely and practically, but 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 Lilith

You can chant these words out loud but it’s not mandatory! If you are not into prayers, you can skip this part, or, if you love prayers but these words below don’t seem to be in tune with your devotion to Lilith, you can create your own prayer!

“Powerful Lilith
Goddess of the moon
Goddess of women
I am here to honor you
I am here bowing to you
Might your energy bless me
I embrace my femininity
I embrace the strength and the generating force that all can create and all can destroy
Let me be your vessel to make this energy rule the world and shape the universe
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 outside into the night or bury them in a field to let the incense get back to earth. Do whatever feels right!

Where can you buy incense for Lilith?

You can buy the incense wherever you want, but just make sure the incenses are high quality so you can truly enjoy the magic and the properties of the incense you will use while being safe too. Online, you can find great and cheap offers but, before buying, try to learn more about the product’s manufacturing process.

If you know some esoteric shop you can go there so you can also have the chance to ask for some guidance about choosing the right incense for what you would like to get from this practice.
