Burning incense without charcoal
Burning incense without charcoal is becoming increasingly popular. Using an incense warmer for smoking incense over a tea light are a great alternative to burning on charcoal and particularly suitable for incense such as herbs, flowers, resins and woods, they burn up gently. It creates less smoke than when burning with charcoal.
An incense warmer consists of a vessel made of ceramic or clay, with a fine metal screen placed under a burning candle. According to the principle of aroma lamp Incense are placed on the screen and can then fade slowly and spread their delicate scent.
Burning with the incense warmer is simple:
• Place the incense warmer on a fireproof surface
• Place a burning candle in the warmer
• Insert the metal screen on the warmer and add a little incense on the screen.
Do not let this burn unattended.
Resins and balms such as frankincense, benzoin, myrrh, become a thin liquid when heated and could drop through the metal. Therefore we advise you to sprinkle some quartz sand on the screen or place a piece of aluminum foil, then add your incense.
Put on only small amounts of incense at a time.
When burning herbs or herbal mixtures with oils keep at a reasonable distance from the flame so the Incense can not ignite.
Cleaning the metal screen: resin residues are burned directly over the flame and then brushed off with a small bristle brush with soapy water from time to time to remove the black carbon.
Another type of incense warmer is our fragrance lamp Geo. It consists of a vessel with a removable tray that is filled with water. Once the water starts to evaporate, add a few grains of resin or other aromatics and soon a pleasant scent spreads in a room.
