Incense has been used throughout the centuries in spiritual practices all over the world, particularly for use in protection and purification rituals. It has been burned to cleanse living spaces, banish negative energies, and to encourage higher spiritual vibration.
Protection incense is easy to use, either by simply burning within your home, using in cleansing rituals around the body or space, or using it to cleanse protection crystals such as amethyst or blue angelite.
With so many types of beautiful incense available on this market, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. In this guide we will explore some of the best incense for protection, and how to use it effectively.
Frankincense incense is a popular choice for purification and protection, and has been revered by many ancient civilizations because of this power. It also serves to boost spiritual awareness, clairvoyance, and intuition.
For this reason, it is particularly effective when burned during meditation practices, allowing the eyes to open and see things that try to remain hidden.
Amber is a very potent incense which has historically been used for medicinal purposes due to its antiseptic qualities. The resin is used to attract and absorb negative energies, whereas the incense is very effective in neutralizing negative energy in the space we inhabit, and to bring good luck to its user.
Amber is also a stabilizing incense. This means that when we feel out of balance, it brings order and protection to the higher and more powerful energies.
The beautiful woody scent of sandalwood is a great addition to the home. It is an instant mood lifter, bringing brightness and positivity to its users, and soothing anxiety and stress. In doing so, it promotes the access of good energy and good intentions, and protects the user from harm.
Sandalwood incense also acts as a purifier of the body, acting as a conduit for negative energy that has built up within to flow out. Consider using it in a purification ceremony of the body, allowing it to billow around you before meditation practice.
Myrrh, like amber, has historically been used for medicinal purposes, but also found its way into spiritual rituals. Myrrh incense is said to ward off evil spirits and draw spiritual protection.
Much like sandalwood it is also thought to draw negativity away from the body, allowing our natural vibrations to realign with the vibrations of the universe.
Sage incense is perhaps best known for its purification abilities. Used in cleansing rituals around the home and the body, it is thought to banish negative energies, leaving the space feeling safe, welcoming, and positive. It is also effective for cleansing healing crystals.
When used regularly, sage creates a protective bubble around us, warding off evil and banishing electromagnetic pollution, leaving the home and the body safe and protected.
