How to Burn Resin Incense

Burning resin incense is a great way to create a peaceful and inviting atmosphere in your home. Resin incense is made from tree sap and is available in a variety of scents, such as frankincense, myrrh, and dragon's blood. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to burn resin incense:


1.     Gather your materials: You will need resin incense, a heat-proof dish, and a charcoal disc. You may also want to have a lighter or matches on hand. Charcoal tongs are also handy and provide an additional layer of safety.


2.     Prepare the heat-proof dish: Place the heat-proof dish on a stable surface, such as a table or altar. The dish should be large enough to hold the charcoal disc and the resin incense.


3.     Light the charcoal disc: Using a lighter or matches, light the charcoal disc. Hold the disc with tongs or a heat-proof tool, and allow it to light for about a minute. Once the disc has stopped sparking and has a gray ash covering, it is ready to use.


4.     Place the disc in the dish: Carefully place the lit charcoal disc in the heat-proof dish. Be sure to place it on a heat-resistant surface like a trivet. Sand is also used to help dissipate the heat of the charcoal.


5.     Add the resin incense: Once the charcoal disc is in place, it is time to add the resin incense. Use a tool, such as a toothpick, to place small pieces of resin on top of the disc. Do not add too much at once as this could extinguish the charcoal. Add additional pieces as needed depending on your desired level of fragrance.


6.     Enjoy the aroma: Once the resin incense is placed on the charcoal disc, the aroma will begin to fill the room. You can use a feather or fan to waft the smoke in the direction you want.


It's worth mentioning that you should never leave burning incense unattended and always keep a close eye on the burning charcoal. Also, you should consider the smoke and ash generated by burning resin incense, ensure the room is well ventilated and have a plan in case of fire.


In conclusion, burning resin incense is a simple and effective way to create a peaceful and inviting atmosphere in your home. With the right materials and a little bit of preparation, you can enjoy the unique fragrances and benefits of resin incense. Whether you're looking to relax, meditate, or simply enjoy the pleasant aromas, resin incense is a great way to do it.
