The Bowl

For burning incense, you can use all refractory vessels of clay, porcelain, ceramic, copper, brass or stone. A plate or bowl can be used.

Metal receptacles should be so big that you can pour a sufficient quantity of sand for thermal insulation.

For fumigating the apartment or for an incense ritual with several people, in which the incense bowl is passed around in turn, vessels made of metal are not suitable because they are too hot.

Especially good for smoking incense are burners that have one or more feet made of ceramic or stoneware. The feet prevent the resulting heat during smoking being delivered directly to the surface.

Make sure when using bowls of ceramic and stoneware that the glaze is lead-free and cadmium, so that no pollutants are released when heated. The internal temperature of the vessel should be greater than 1200 degrees Celsius.

Please ensure that the vessel can not tip over and stands on a fireproof surface.

 

incense-sand

Firesand

For the burning of incense using a fine sand or sea sand, which is filled in the incense bowl and ensures that the Charcoal is adequately ventilated from below and uniformly burns. The sand also prevents sticky remnants of burnt incense to pollute the shell.

Instead of sand, you can also use Japanese incense ash. However, this has the disadvantage that they can stir up very easily when fanning the smoke.

Tip : Do not use bird sand, because it is most often enriched with anise and other flavors. These aromas are released during heating.

incense-charcoal

Charcoal

It is self-igniting Special incense charcoal in tablet form, which can be ignited easily and quickly. The charcoal is available in two sizes with a diameter of 33 mm and 40 mm. If you want to burn only briefly, you should choose the smaller charcoal that burns in about half an hour; for longer incenses the larger coal with an time of one hour.

Alternatively, you can also use Japanese Incense without admixtures. However, this requires a little more attention, because it must be constantly fanned until it glows.

Tip: Keep your charcoal well packed in a dry place so it will not get wet or damp this makes it difficult to ignite.

 

incense-pliers

Tongs

A tong is used to hold the charcoal when lighting so you do not burn your fingers. You can also be used like a large pair of tweezers.

 

incense-feather

Feather or fan

With a beautiful feather or a fan, you fan the lighted charcoal, so that glows beautifully and evenly. The feather can also be used to distribute the smoke in the room.

 

incense-mortar

Mortar

Many smoke deposits contain essential oils, which evaporate quickly. Therefore, it is recommended that this be reduced in size until just before smoking in a mortar, so that the full aroma can unfold. If you use an incense for smoking, the substances mix evenly by crushing in a mortar. There are porcelain, marble or stone mortars.

 incense-spoon

Incense spoon

An incense spoon can be used to dispense the crushed incense in the mortar to lay the incense on the charcoal. With a spoon, you can remove charred remains of the incense of the charcoal as well.

incense-mixture

Incense blend

For burn you can use dried resins, balams, wood, bark, leaves, needles, roots, flowers and herbs and of course our finished incense mixtures which are available for every occasion and every mood. If you start burning incense we recommend that you use Incense that exude a pleasant aroma, such as sandalwood, cedar tips, white sage or incense resins such as, benzoin or myrrh.
You will quickly find out which incense deposits you like best and maybe even create your own blends.
