Myrrh is a complex essence and contains many different energies. Myrrh thrives in full sun and was used in ancient Egyptian rites as an incense of Ra, so the solar correspondence is evident. The plant’s thorns and dark, blood-like resin also lead to an association with Mars.

However, most esoteric scholars associate Myrrh with the Moon, particularly the phase of the Black Moon. A secondary planetary correspondence would be Saturn, which rules darkness and death.

As for the Wicca current, Myrrh is most frequently associated with the element of water, closely related to the Moon. Indeed, myrrh certainly has some watery attributes such as its links with pain, contemplation, and the womb. Myrrh leads us into the depths of emotion to work its healing magic.

Sticks or grains?

It’s your call! I love sticks and they work just great for me but if you want to use grains, you can totally do that!

Do I need a burner?

If you are going to use grains yes, an incense burner is a mandatory tool to burn grains safely, but if you are going to use an incense stick, you don’t need one. However, you might consider using an incense holder, especially if you want to leave the incense burn all by itself.

Where can you buy incense for New Moon?

Online, you can find endless brands offering amazing incense specifically designed for the new moon. Combining many incenses can enhance its effects, but watch out! Some of them may seem like great products but they are not the organic, natural, or high-quality incenses for new moon that you need to rely on to make some magic!

To prevent any disappointing experiences, always read the product’s description, check previous clients’ feedback and opinions about the brand and then try to learn more about the history and philosophy yourself. If you have a trusted herbalist nearby, you can ask for some guidance with tips and tricks on what to choose and how to use it.

Only make sure the incenses are high quality so you can truly enjoy the magic and the properties of the incense you are going to use while using safe incenses for your health as well.
