Protection & Defense Incense Recipe

This one of the incense blends I created for my shop.  I had easy access to all these ingredients.  My apologies to those of you who have difficulty procuring them. I make some suggestions at the end to try to help you.

1 part marjoram
1 part rosemary
1 part white sage
1/2 part wood betony
1/2 part sennel
1/2 part parsley
1/2 part rue
1/2 part woodruff
1/2 part wormwood

  1. Burn over charcoal in a well ventilated room. Defense Incense

WR's Herbal Magick Protection & Defense Incense Recipe |

  • Use only dried herbs.
  • Finely chopped and/or ground herbs work best.  Use a coffee grinder or food processor to chop herbs.  NEVER use a coffee grinder that has been, or will be, used for coffee (because coffee oils will survive washing as do various oils from herbs).
  • Can’t find an ingredient? I would recommend checking with your local pagan shop, spice stores, and tea shops for ingredients.  Grocery stores should be used as a last resort as the quality of the herbs sold isn’t the best (a lesson I learned once I opened my shop).

Please note:   These herbs are combined for their magickal properties, not their aromatic properties.
