Frankincense Resin Incense 0.5 oz
This powerful resin is believed to increase spiritual awareness in addition to offering both protection and purification. Wonderful incense to use while meditating! Resin is incense in its most pure form, top of the line in incense burning. Resins have been used for thousands of years right through to today in religious ceremonies by many religions and are also popular for the beautiful and pure scents they release. The scents released are fragrant, pure and intense so only a small amount is needed - so even a small bag will go farther than you thin. You do not use these granules like 'normal' incense sticks or cones. You will need a heat resistant container and charcoal tablets to burn the granules over.
HOW TO BURN INCENSE RESIN
What you will need: Your Resin, Charcoal Discs: you can find many varieties in our Solo Therapy store -- A bowl, Censer or plate: almost anything that can withstand heat will work. Often people add sand to a bowl to help absorb heat. Ornate traditional incense burners in metal are also recommended. We also carry Charcoal Tongs so you don't burn your fingers. -- A lighter or matches: to start the self-igniting charcoal. A lighter is best
- 1. Light the charcoal and place it in your bowl or burn. Never hold the charcoal with your fingers - always use tongs or even pliers. Apply flame to the side of the charcoal for about 20 seconds. The charcoal will then self-ignite across the surface. Charcoals do not usually light easily if they are laying flat on some surface or in a bowl. It is best to hold the charcoal in the air with a tool when applying the flame to the charcoal.
- 2. Wait for the charcoal to ignite and warm up. This usually takes about 3 minutes. You will notice the charcoal starting to go gray around the edges.
- 3. Add resins. Just place a small amount on top of the charcoal. The resins or herbs will begin to burn and release their essential oils through the smoke.
- 4. Enjoy. Every aromatic herb and resin has different properties, and can evoke different moods. Experiment and enjoy!
