Resin Incense

Resin incense, which has been used for thousands of years in India as part of ritual, is said to bring couples together and to heal bonds between individuals. Frankincense can be used to awaken the mind to a higher state and to enhance meditation and prayer. Incense is usually made of mostly natural materials. The first incenses created were made from aromatic materials such as sage, resins, oils, wood, and others. The end of the incense — which can be cone, stick, round, or other — is lit with flame to burn and emit smoke. Nobody should ever ingest an essential oil, but people can swallow frankincense extract. Frankincense is natural, but like many other natural substances, it can be poisonous. Some people who have used frankincense extract have experienced: stomach pain. 

Burning Incense Sticks:

  • Light the tip of the incense stick. If your incense has a bamboo stick, hold the uncoated portion of the bamboo stick and light the opposite "coated" end.
  • Gently extinguish the flame by blowing or fanning.
  • Place the unlit end in an appropriate incense burner.

How to Burn Resins: 

Light the charcoal with matches or lighter for about 20 seconds until it self-ignites. Use tongs to hold it up (never hold it with your fingers alone or you might get burned). Place the lit charcoal in a bowl or any incense burner. The bowl or incense burner should be filled with sand or dirty.

How to Burn Resin Incense Without Charcoal:

  • Clean the candle diffuser well. Leftover particles and dirt may change the scent of the resin.
  • Fill the well halfway with water. The water will keep the incense from sicking to the burner.
  • Place a few nuggets of resin incense in the water.
  • Light the tea light, and place it under the diffuser's well.
