Aphrodite, or Venus, is the popular goddess of love from Greco-Roman mythology. Many pagans are dedicated to her, and love spells that honor her are particularly potent. This Aphrodite Incense will honor this goddess and may just help you to gain her favor.
Why would someone worship aphrodite? Because she is the embodiment of love, beauty, sexuality, ecstasy, and passion. She can bless people with fertility, ignite passion in the bedroom, protect a relationship, and enact vengeance against cheaters or bad lovers.
She is also a sea goddess that protects sailors, and perhaps strangely a goddess of war. She had cults in many places, including Crete, Cyprus, Corinth and Sicily.
Aphrodite loves receiving gifts, maybe more than most other deities. She returns these favors with gifts of her own, sometimes bringing a new love into your life and other times protecting the love between two people.
This incense remedy will also be useful as an offering for Ishtar, Astarte, Hathor, and Turan.
