Resin Burning - Charcoal Discs

Even if you are an experience resin burner here is a technique you might like to try. We find it delivers more of the pure incense fragrance and less of the burnt rubber smell you can get if too much heat is used.

First of all remember that burning anything can be hazardous so take sensible precautions and keep children and animals well away.

1. Light your charcoal disc as normal.

2. Often you will find instructions telliing you to wait until the disc is covered with white ash before adding the resin and this is where our technique differs since we believe that gives far too hot a burn. Instead, light the disc and allow the white ash to develop around the outer edge (so the well in the centre is still black.

3. At this stage, fill the well in the charcoal disc with normal household salt (to just below the rim).

4. Place a single (reasonable sized grain of resing in the centre of the well and allow it to melt naturally. This will generally soak downward into the disc and will leave a small hole in the salt layer. It is into this hole that you feed peaces of resin as the need arises.

5. You should find that this creates a relatively cool spot in the centre of the burning disc and this produces high quality incense vapours without that awful burning smell.

Here is the sequence in pictures:

Freshly lit charcoal disc  Charcoal Disc with layer of salt added  Charcoal disc with salt and Resin added.  Charcoal disc with well showing in the center  Charcoal disc with resin - the salt absorbs some of the heat giving a purer burn

Try Dammar Gum, Myrrh, Frankincense, Copal etc. and you will experience them as perhaps never before. Don't forget safety and make sure that the disk is properly extinguished when you have finished. Enjoy your Incense.

Wow our two incense burners arrived this morning and they are fabulous, much nicer than the photos (large patterned), we are thrilled with them. One is for us and the other is an initiation gift for someone next week. Thanks so much for sending them so quick - they arrived the next day! Great service, great product. There seems to be a national shortage of decent large burners at the moment, none on ebay, none on Amazon or anywhere. Your shop was the only one who stocked them. Many thanks
