Magickal Potpourri

I know that many people prefer to use incense when scent is called upon for magickal working, however I like to use potpourri for this purpose instead. Since there is no smoke, there is no dust and no damage to your lungs or the air. And if you have ever tried to make incense, you know it isn't easy! This is just about as easy as it comes. When mixing the herbs together, visualize you need. Feel the herbs in your hand, send your power to them for whatever the purpose they are being made is. That's it. Here are some of my favorites!

Altar Potpourri
3 parts Frankincense
2 parts Myrrh
1 part cinnamon
Use as a general potpourri on the Altar to purify the area.

Consecration Potpourri
2 parts Lavender
1 part Wood Betony
1 part Blessed Thistle
1 part Rosemary
1 part dried Lemon
Use when purifying or consecrating magickal tools, jewelry, quartz crystals and other stones, pass the tool through the fragrent steam several times. Do this while visualizing the steam purifying the tool.
