How You Can Burn the Incense

Why do you choose the incense sticks while there are other forms of incense available on the market? Well, most of the incense on the market contain chemical perfume. Besides burning incense, many perfumes sold on the market also contain a mixture of chemicals. This means that to enjoy natural scents at affordable prices, the choice is only to burn spices and incense resin and maintain fragrant plants, but cannot be enjoyed at any time. A common way to enjoy the aroma of incense is to burn using charcoal. First, prepare a fire-resistant container. Containers can be made of metal, pottery or ceramics. To prevent the burning container from overheating, the container can beĀ filled with ash or white sand. Furthermore, of course, adding hot charcoal. For charcoal, there is a special charcoal that is odorless and not smoky.

One important point here is that charcoal must burn completely until the color turns red and produces a layer of ash before it is used to burn incense. If the charcoal has not been completely burned, it can be ascertained that the flame will be extinguished very quickly. Especially if it is then added to the incense on top, it could be that the fire will be extinguished instantly.

After hot charcoal is stored in the combustion container, it’s time to add incense. Incense resin granules can be directly added to charcoal or pounded first. To facilitate rooting, it is recommended to mash incense first. Furthermore, if incense is sown directly on charcoal, it will produce thick smoke and a strong odor. This is caused by a resin which burns directly when touching the embers. To avoid this, incense can be placed next to charcoal, or put aluminum foil on charcoal and put incense on top of this layer of aluminum foil. In both ways, the essential oil contained in incense will evaporate slowly without burning too much resin so the aroma will be fresher.
