How to Burn Resin Incense Without Charcoal
Resin incense comes in many varieties. It has been used throughout history during religious ceremonies and rituals. The traditional method of burning resin incense is to use special self-lighting charcoal bricks. These round bricks are specially made with potassium so they will light with the first contact with flame.
However, these are messy and unreliable. Consider other methods of enjoying the rich soothing smell of resin incense without the mess of charcoal. All you need is a candle diffuser, and you can experience the sweet scent of incense in your home.
Things You Will Need
- Candle diffuser
- Resin incense
- Tea light
Add more water if the well is getting low. This prevents the incense from drying out. Don't have a diffuser? Boil water on your stove, and put the resin incense in the pot. The scent will be released with the steam.
Never use self-lighting incense in the diffuser well. Keep away from children and pets.
Clean the candle diffuser well. Leftover particles and dirt may change the scent of the resin.
Fill the well halfway with water. The water will keep the incense from sicking to the burner.
Place a few nuggets of resin incense in the water.
Light the tea light, and place it under the diffuser's well.
