Natural or Synthetic?
The idea of using scent in your spell casting is to enhance its power with the energy of other plants, herbs etc. For this reason i ask you to think carefully before using any kind of synthetic scents as these have no magickal energy connected to them. Man made synthetics do not hold any of the energy connected to the plant/herb etc they are trying to recreate and instead contain chemicals which can hinder your magickal efforts.
Natural essential oils have wonderful and very powerful energies which are directly connected to the plant or herb they come from. This makes them ideal helpers in all magickal workings, helping focus you and add their specific qualities to your spell work.
Ways To Use Fragrance In Spell Work -
Candle Anointing Oils:
Choose or blend oils using pure essential oils which correspond to the spell you intend to cast. By anointing the candles with this oil you will release their energies as the flame burns down releasing a light scent.
Incense Grain or Stick:
Burnt in the room while you cast your spells incense can really set the right mood and enhance your spells energy. Try and get grain incense where possible or carefully select your stick incense to avoid synthetics.
