Resin incense

Resin incense is one of the oldest smoke-producing fragrances and has been burned for centuries in sacred rituals to provide psychic and physical well-being. They can also infuse an evocative fragrance into your home to bring a peaceful atmosphere. Resin incense has a strong, sweet smell and is often used for meditation or ritual purposes.

What is resin incense?

Resin incense is made from the sap of trees, which is collected and then dried. The dried sap is then ground into a powder or made into pellets. Resin incense can be made from many types of tree resin, including frankincense, myrrh, and copal. Then these resins are colored and infused with essential oils. Then they are mixed with other fragrances (such as Boswellia Papyrifera or Commiphora Myrrha), dried petals, and wood to form a mixture that will smoke and emit odor when heated.

These resin incense blends have a strong aroma. Only a small amount (less than half a teaspoon) is required for each use and will infuse a powerful aroma. The resin incense is perfect to help you create an ideal atmosphere when creating spells and rituals.

The best thing about resin incense is that you can change the intensity of its aroma by choosing the amount of burn each time, so you don't have to be overwhelmed by the set amount like stick incense or cone incense.

How to use resin incense with charcoal?

The resin incense needs to be burned in a heat-resistant container, such as a kettle, cauldron or brazier. You can find various resin incense burners on our website. Here is a guide to use resin incense:

1. Filling the Incense-Holder
Fill your Incense-Holder 3/4 full of charcoal with sand or stones to absorb some heat. Then place your Incense-Holder on a heat-resistant surface, such as a coaster or ceramic tile, as the bottom of the burner will become very hot and may damage your surface.

2. Charcoal Burning
Using tongs to hold the charcoal shelf, light it following the instructions provided with your charcoal. Place the hot charcoal on the sand bed inside your charcoal burner or on the grate if your burner has one. Let the charcoal sit for 5-15 minutes to reach the temperature indicated by the layer of ash that forms on the shelf.

3. Add Resin
Using a metal spoon, add a very small amount of resin to the hot charcoal, releasing the fragrant incense smoke. Repeat as desired until the charcoal is used up.

4. Let the Charcoal Cool
When finished, allow the charcoal to cool completely in the burner before discarding it. If in doubt, lower it with water.
