How to use benzoe resin incense
To burn resin incense, you need a heat-proof bowl (some people put sand in it to absorb the heat), a lighter or match, tongs and a charcoal briquet.
- Ignite the charcoal briquet with the lighter or match. It's important to hold the briquet with a tool (like tongs or pliers) and not with your fingers, unless you want to be in tremendous pain.
- Put the briquet in the bowl, and wait until it turns white around the edges (this takes a couple of minutes).
- Carefully put a little bit of resin on top of the briquet.
- Now sit and wait for your pure aromatic bliss.
Only use Benzoe as incense. It is not meant for consumption.
