Morrigan is a powerful goddess who can help us connect with the strongest part of ourselves. I love her energy so much! If you love incenses and you feel a connection between you and Morrigan, read this article and learn which are the best incenses to connect with her.


When working with Morrigan, the Celtic goddess associated with war and transformation, you can use specific incense to align with her energies.

Suitable options include Dragon’s Blood for transformation, Myrrh for spiritual connection, Frankincense for communication, Patchouli for protection, and Rose for aspects related to love and sensuality.

Be cautious and do thorough research when considering the use of more potent substances like belladonna.

Always approach Morrigan with respect, set clear intentions, and tailor your incense choices to your specific goals and practices based on your tradition.

The original name of Nightshade is Atropa Belladonna, which derives from the “parca Atropa”, the one who had the task, in Greek mythology, of cutting the thread of people’s lives.

From it the substance called anthropine is obtained, used as an ointment from the name the whisper of the witches, on the occasion of the Sabbath, also it was used whenever a coven wanted to summon the devil. Nightshade incense is great for those who want to connect with the underworld and the afterlife.

Since ancient times, it is believed that by burning this precious red substance, it is possible to exorcise evil, and attract love, and have good luck. Dragon’s Blood incense, in fact, has always found its greatest use in magical-religious rituals. In India, it is still used as ceremonial incense.

In witchcraft, it is indicated to increase the power of love and sexuality spells but, paradoxically, it is also used in compounds intended for abortive use. In Hoodoo, a type of African American witchcraft, like in New Orleans Voodoo, is used to attract money and love, but also to purify places and homes.

It is considered useful for protection during astral travel or simply during sleep. Dragon’s Blood incense is suitable for purifying environments before a ritual, as protection during summoning and invocation, and even exorcisms.

Blackthorn incense embodies two different natures, lovingly intertwined with each other in a single, intricate design. Brightness and darkness, joy and pain, life and death, come together and entangle tightly in a perfect harmony of opposites, an intimate union that the ancients loved to examine. It was widely considered a representation of the completeness of being.

They probably saw the truth hidden beyond the appearance of forms, a truth that Christian preachers, having reached a time of profound change, did not know, and therefore considered diabolical. This is probably one of the reasons why the wild plum is remembered above all for its dark aspects, which made it a tree dear to witches, ambiguous and dangerous.

The dark color of its fruits, their sour and bitter taste, together with the impenetrable and tangled darkness of its branches, made it a disturbing and threatening shrub, similar to a creature of darkness, twisted and skeletal, which captured the unfortunate who they got too close, dragging them into the unknown darkness of its thorny recesses.

Witches were believed to use their long thorns to pierce fetishes and wax dolls, causing pain, disease, and, in some cases, death to their chosen victims.

A great incense stands as a symbol of Morrigan’s destructive power.

How to get rid of sticks after a session is done?

When you are done using incense, you can dispose of the ashes in two ways: you can blow the ashes outside in nature or bury them in a field to let the incense get back to earth, which is its natural original source. This makes the final part of your ritual a chance to thank the earth for its gifts to you and your practice.

How beautiful is that?

You can buy it wherever you like, either online or at an herbalist shop. However, make sure you always choose natural, organic incense so its natural properties are intact. Burning low-quality incense can harm your health, so for the sake of your magic and your health, make sure you buy organic!
