The most effective incenses for the Full Moon
These are the best incenses for the Full Moon! Make sure you choose the incense you like the most. Doing so will boost the positive energy you attract. These incenses have pretty similar properties, so if you simply prefer the smell of one over the other, then that is all you need to guide your decision.
Palo Santo incense
Palo Santo is considered a sacred, magical plant. It has been used for millennia to drive away negative energies and evil spirits, but also to prevent diseases that are caused by these energies and spirits.
In this case, we are talking about diseases of the mind, such as sadness, depression, and anger. These are often caused by “bad energy” or “white planga”, “an energy that is not seen, not heard, not it is touched and has no smell ”, similar to an evil eye.
White Sage incense
White Sage incense has always been considered sacred for many of the Native American populations on the west coast, where it is used in multiple practices. The most widespread use is undoubtedly fumigation: the smoke of the burnt sage can purify the person’s invisible aspect.
When should you use them?
You can use incense when the Full Moon is at its peak, or the days before or after.
How to use them?
You can simply let the incense burn and fumigate your house, or you can use it to purify some magical equipment ready for a Full Moon spell. This could be your altar, your divination tools, or anything else.
Sticks or grains?
It’s your call! I love sticks, and they work great for me but if you want to use grains, you can do that!
Do I need a burner?
If you are going to use grains yes, an incense burner is the most practical and safest option. If you use an incense stick, you don’t need one. However, you might consider using an incense holder.
A prayer to chant while using incense for the Full Moon
You can chant these words to let the moon know you are channeling your energy to make some magic happen. If you want, you can also create your own custom prayer for the Full Moon and speak it while the incense burns.

How to get rid of the remains after a session is done
When you are done with the incense, you can dispose of it in two ways: you can blow the ashes outside into the wind or you can bury it in a field to reunite the incense with the earth. Your call!
Where can you buy incense for the next Full Moon?
You can buy it both online and in physical stores. Just make sure the incenses are high quality so you can truly channel the energy of the incense while protecting your health too.
