This is a basic list of incense & oils that can be used in rituals, spells, and other magickal workings dedicated to protection & defense . Fragrances followed by (O) are to be used as oils, the rest can be used as either an incense or an oil.
The following fragrances had very specific ways of being used so I added that information here:
|Blueberry||Burn to keep unwanted influences away from you and your home.|
|Copal||Burn to cleanse away negativity.|
|Frankincense||Burn to remove unwanted influences.|
|Myrrh||For protection and purification.|
|Pine||Burn to reverse and return negative energy.|
|Rose||Burn to reduce personal stress and restore calm to your home.|
|Sandalwood||Burn for protection.|
|Spice||A fiery multi-purpose fragrance that can be used for protection.|
