CAUTION: Charcoal gets very hot. Never hold charcoal once it has been lit. Never leave your charcoal unattended when its burning. Always burn on heat resistance burner. Charcoal will cause burner to get hot. Please insure that your burner can absorb the heat as to not damage furniture or start a fire. Also place burner on wood coaster or other heat resistant material. Never handle hot burner with your hands. Keep away from kids and pets.
These charcoal discs are quick-igniting.
- Prepare your vessel:
A screened charcoal burner like this one is best!
Make sure the screen in concave, this way it will create a nook for the disc to stay in place inside your burner.
(Charcoal touching metal won’t burn, so if your burner does’t have a screen place sand in the bottom of the vessel, and place charcoal on top)
This is important: make sure your container is heat-proof, metal is definitely the BEST option. Charcoal gets very hot! Other materials can/will break and you can end up starting a fire. Please be cautious.
- Light the charcoal with a candle or a torch lighter.
Quick-igniting charcoal will start sparkling. Avoid the smoke released from the sparkles. (For not quick-igniting charcoal we suggest burning it for a couple of minutes on stovetop or on burner with torch lighter)
Always hold charcoal with tongs.
- When charcoal gets a ring of ash, it’s ready for the incense!
Add a pinch of loose incense (with fingers if you are careful, or use a metal spoon if you’re extra careful)
Resin will boil, then melt into the charcoal. Herbs burn faster, wait until they are charred to scrape them off the charcoal to add more.
This is why screened burners are the best! It’s so easy to scrape them off into the vessel!
To make the charcoal burn hotter or faster, tap the ashes off, leave the ashes if you choose a slower burn.

The smoke from burning incense is a vehicle that can carry prayers.

Burning loose incense is a unique experience. The endless combinations in every pinch you place onto the hot charcoal makes for a dynamic aromatic experience, as the proportion of herbs and resins in each pinch will be slightly different from the one that burned before.
Use caution when working with fire and hot charcoal. Do not leave unattended.
Inhale and exhale deeply. Allow yourself to bask into the experience.
