So I was reading up on incense properties, to refresh my memory.
I burn hand dipped naturals from Primo out of Oregon… and I’ve always had my favorites. Night Queen, and Amber. I love other smells, yellow rose, nag champa, patchouli, etc etc etc I have an incense collection that I could construct an entire altar with. But Night Queen and Amber are my stand-by smells – always.[[MORE]]
So considering the warfare within my body and heart and mind lately I was looking into it, from a religious standpoint for myself. I learned a couple of things.
1. Both Night Queen and Amber are Aura cleansing and more importantly aura healing scents.
2. Again, Both Night Queen and Amber are energy lifts during the day time, having the same effect as a cup of coffee, it is said they lift your mood and your energy in the afternoon.
Night Queen – (aka Night Jasmine) – Dreamwork, Prophetic Dreams, Money Drawing, Love. It is said if you are experiencing restless sleep or nightmares, try burning a sandalwood, frankincense, night queen or lavender incense before bed. It is said to be the choice herb/oil of Dianic women. It is also said, throughout history, it has been used to lower fevers, help with all forms of rheumatism, and sciatica. Other related properties: symbolic of the moon and of the mysteries of the night, can induce prophetic dreams if burned in the bedroom; also associated with good luck in love and wealth, anointing; Balance; Luck; Fortune; Justice; Happiness; Harmony; Peace; Meditation; Money; Riches; Astral Projection, Sleep, Healing and Health.
I also use the oil in a perfume solid form, made of beeswax and essential oils. Great in spell crafting or applying to chakras for specific purpose.
Amber Incense – Love, Protection, Cleansing, Meditation. Used to enhance and inspire the sensations of love, comfort and happiness. (Which we can all use more of, right?) In aromatherapy the oils (the same oils these sticks are dipped in) amber is applied in treating rheumatic (lupus…….) and thyroid ailments. It is not natural in itself. I didn’t know that. It is a resin, that oil can slightly be derived from, but has to be mixed with other oils, and the bits of amber resin added to it. (Which begs, what else is it mixed with??) It’s zodiac influence is Libra – as am I. It’s emotional property is stability and self confidence (maybe I should imbue amber more into my daily life, no?) It’s healing properties are general wellness, and physical maintenance. Magickal properties are Restoration, settling, end to turmoil and peace.
I also use the Auric Blends oil. I have since I was about 12. For all the purposes listed above. And I find it to be a great barrier when the veil is thin – for whatever reason, it strengthens my personal …. “filter” ….
Fair winds…. I hope some of you found this post useful.
