Scents – mood setters
The sense of smell is extremely important, and it is often through the nose that you just “know” they are the right one. Incense is a mood setter and helps to increase energies. Many find incense great to use for smudging, while others find it helps set the mood for meditation. Whether you use powered, stick or cones, incense can be a powerful tool in your meditation toolbox. Also important is the part incense plays in a ritual. From the incense used in the Christian church to that used by the magic practitioner, the use of scents is a powerful part of spiritual practice.
While lotus, frankincense, or frankincense and myrrh are all good general scents to use, using the appropriate scent can add depth and power to your ritual or meditation. However, how do you know the right incense to choose?
