Hey there incense lovers!
As someone who has been burning incense for years, I’ve learned a thing or two about how to do it safely and effectively.
If you’re new to incense or just looking to up your game, here are my top tips for lighting incense like a pro:
You’ll need your favorite incense, an incense holder, and a lighter or matches.
There are tons of different types of incense out there, so have fun experimenting and finding your favorite scents and forms (sticks, cones, etc.).
As for holders, there are plenty of cool options to choose from. Just make sure it’s stable and appropriate for the type of incense you’re using.
Incense should be burned in a well-ventilated area, away from flammable materials.
I like to burn mine near an open window to let the smoke and fragrance escape. Just make sure you’re not too close to curtains or other materials that could catch fire.
To light your incense, hold a match or lighter to the tip until it starts to burn.
If you’re using a stick incense, you may need to hold it for a few seconds to get it going.
If you’re using a cone or coil, place it in the holder and light the tip.
Once your incense is lit, sit back and enjoy the fragrance. Depending on the type you’re using, it may burn for a few minutes or up to an hour.
If you’re using a stick incense, you may need to gently blow on the embers to keep it going.
When you’re done with your incense, make sure to extinguish it properly. For sticks, simply blow out the embers.
For cones or coils, use tongs or a spoon to gently extinguish the embers in a bowl of sand or water.
And that’s it! With these simple steps, you’ll be lighting incense like a pro in no time.
Just remember to be safe and have fun.
