The most effective incense for positive energy

*I found the best quality incense on Etsy. I wasn’t happy with what I found on Amazon! I also suggest that you check what local shops nearby have in stock.


As a magical tradition, cedar incense, an incense of Lebanese origin, is a very effective energy raiser. Cedar is under the influence of Jupiter but also has solar characteristics. It is endowed with strong purifying power and the ability to chase away bad dreams and ward off evil spirits.

In some ancient texts, cedar is considered a watchful sentinel of the house where it is planted, due to its power to keep thieves, onlookers, and unwanted people away. The smoke of this incense also attracts positive energy towards material prosperity.

Sandalwood incense is used as a harmonizer to overly rational people who tend to keep everything under control, to those who are facing a period of strong emotional stress.

It gives lightness, stimulates serenity, and calms the mind by dampening excess aggression as an energizer because harmonizing the emotional part it helps to regain physical strength and attract positivity towards your overall health.

A rose incense acts on the heart chakra, opening up to love and harmony. A rose gives a sense of deep happiness and joy and, moreover, it is an excellent aphrodisiac, especially when used with other flower essences such as jasmine. Within the natural rose incense, you will find some resins and harmonizing spices that normally act by calming the moods of agitation.

And then, of course, you will find pure incense that accompanies inner recollection and purification on an aromatherapy level. Pure incense is used in religious ceremonies precisely because of these characteristics.

Therefore, the properties of natural rose incense are stimulating and energizing. If you need some positive energy to rule your love life, rose incense is what you need!

When to use them?

You can use incense for positive energy when you think you need a fresh start and you feel your energy is a bit low. If you want, you can burn the incense for positive energy on a Sunday so the Sun’s energy of this day can be around you to enhance the incense’s effects.

How to use them?

Burning incense sticks is quite simple.

First, gently remove the incense stick from the package as they are fragile and may break. Then, light the opposite end using a lighter or a match.

After lighting it, you will have to wait a few seconds for the flame to grow in size, then extinguish it with a fan movement or by blowing lightly.

Once the flame is out, the combustion process begins and wisps of smoke immediately fill the air.


Finally, carefully place the stick horizontally inside the holder.

You can find incense holders on Amazon (US or UK), on Etsy, and in other specialized witchy shops!

Sticks or grains?

I love sticks and I think they are the best and most practical option to let the energy of incenses work effectively, but if you want to use grains, you can totally do that! This is a personal choice! Use whatever is available to you.

Do I need a burner?

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

A prayer to chant for positive energy

You can chant these words out loud, if you want, to let the incense for positive energy attract positivity. You can also recreate your own prayer if you like!

“Might fresh positive energy come my way
I can feel the positivity blessing my soul
Blessings my life
Blessings to those around me
Blessings my hopes and dreams
No time nor room for negativity
Positive is like a strong bright light pervading it all”

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

When you are done, you can dispose of it in two ways: you can blow the ashes outside into the wind, you can bury it in a field to let the incense get back to earth.

Where can you buy incense for positive energy?

You can find endless brands offering amazing incenses for positive energy online, but watch out! Some of them may seem like great brands but they are not! 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 the philosophy of the brand you would like to buy from!

If you have a trusted herbalist close to home, you can ask them for some guidance. 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.

If you want to attract fresh positive energy in your life, you would like to use magic but you don’t feel comfortable with casting the spell yourself, don’t forget I can help you with my spell casting service!
