Resin Incense Jar 3 oz - Sandalwood Intuition
Resin incense is a type of incense made from the hardened sap of trees, such as frankincense. It's a popular form of incense due to its rich, natural aroma and long-lasting burn. Here's how you can use resin incense:
- Resin incense
- Charcoal discs or tablets (specifically made for burning incense)
- Heat-resistant container (incense burner)
- Tongs or a spoon for handling the charcoal
Prepare Your Workspace:
- Find a flat, stable surface away from flammable materials.
- Ensure there is good ventilation in the area.
Lighting Charcoal Disc:
- Using tongs, hold the charcoal disc over an open flame (like a candle flame or a lighter) until it starts to spark and catch fire. You'll see it begin to glow red.
- Place the lit charcoal disc in the center of your incense burner.
Wait for the Charcoal to Ash Over:
- Allow the charcoal to heat up and ash over. This process usually takes about 5-10 minutes. You'll know it's ready when it turns a grayish-white color.
- Once the charcoal disc is ready, use a spoon or tongs to sprinkle a small amount (around a pea-sized piece) of resin onto the hot charcoal.
Enjoy the Aroma:
- As the resin heats up, it will release fragrant smoke. Take in the aroma and enjoy the calming or invigorating effect.
Add More Resin as Needed:
- As the resin burns down, you can add more in small increments. Be careful not to overcrowd the charcoal, as this can smother it.
- When you're finished using the incense, let the charcoal burn out completely in the incense burner. It's important to let it cool down before disposing of it, as it can remain hot for a while.
- Ventilation: Ensure there's good airflow in the room to disperse the incense smoke.
- Safety: Never leave burning incense unattended. Keep away from flammable materials.
- Children and Pets: Keep out of reach of children and pets.
- Health Considerations: If you have respiratory issues or sensitivities, be mindful of the amount of smoke produced.
Remember that using resin incense can be a meditative and sensory experience. Take your time, enjoy the fragrance, and let it enhance your environment.
