Love Shack: Incense Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

According to The Mistic, an old-time occult shop that supplies products and services for the "spiritually minded," in New Orleans (a place with a long history associated with sellers of Hoodoo and Voodoo products), incense can be used "in spells to encourage romance, stimulate sexuality, draw love, and create harmony."

Some of the herbs included in these incense blends are juniper berries, lavender, calamus root, basil, red roses, periwinkle, and cinnamon. According to the Mistic, "Occultists generally agree that the best time to do work which draws love and sex is Friday under the Waxing Moon or Full Moon." And, single gals, incense can be used, according to the Mistic experts, to "lure anyone to your shores," or just to "create a general feeling of love amongst partners, friends, family, or coworkers." Are you an incense person? Or would you try it, considering the benefits to your Love Shack? Personally, I just can't fall in love with the scent . . .

I love incense, we burn it all the time. I agree though some are horrible.

I love incense but I'm super picky about what kind I buy, some are too overwhelming and smell horrible. I also have a liquid potpourri burner.
