How to use Incense Cones:
Select your incense burner. Brass burners work well with incense cones and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and designs. Choose your brass burner carefully, however. Make sure that there is enough room to place the cone without burning yourself and make sure its sides are high enough to catch the ash from the cone. ( brass burners, wood, ceramic and soapstone burners are also available)
Place a small amount of sand, grain or rice at the bottom of the burner. Layer it evenly so that the cone sits flat on top. These elements help improve the airflow in your burner, while helping to conduct less heat throughout the surface or base of the burner.
Light the tip of the cone with matches or a lighter. Let 15 to 30 seconds pass, gently blow out the flame. The result will be a wafting spiral of smoke from the top of the cone as it begins to burn.
Carefully place the cone in the burner. Allow the incense to burn down. Enjoy.
Caution: Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Make sure ashes fall on fireproof surfaces (ashtrays or incense stick holder). Not for human consumption. **DO NOT PLACE INCENSE HOLDER/BURNER NEAR FLAMMABLE MATERIAL**
Natural incense may have a future advantage over synthetic air fresheners as trends toward holistic natural living continue.
The increasing popularity of meditation, yoga, and aromatherapy in an increasingly stimulated Western world in need of relaxation bodes well for the increased use of natural incense sticks for therapeutic benefits. Incense is crafted from a mixture of powder and essential oils, giving it a rich texture and scent.
Burning incense is an effective way to beat stress, encourage balance, and breathe new life into old routines. In the hustle and bustle of modern society, it can be challenging to make time for ourselves and escape from the busy pace of everyday life. Burning incense is a pleasant sensory experience that people have valued from time immemorial, and the practice is being revived more and more as people realize how important it is to attend to often neglected aspects of wellbeing, such as mental and spiritual clarity.
Burning incense has a salient impact on our environment and surroundings. The fragrance of incense sticks changes our emotions, perception, and moods. Incense sticks can energize, relax, and harmonize. The resins and botanicals in incense help us to reconnect with nature and plants as a vital life source. We can activate visual, olfactory, and auditory awareness by accentuating incense use with ambient lighting and soothing background music. The stimulating and invigorating effects of certain types of incense sticks may be helpful in fortifying our overall potential and energy when we are weak, discouraged, or fatigued.
Incense has been employed for medicinal and aromatherapy purposes since ancient times. Burning incense sticks frees fragrant chemicals into the air and has a pharmacological effect when inhaled. Incense burning was used successfully to alleviate respiratory illnesses, muscle tension, rheumatism, pain, and insomnia. People have also used certain types of incense as a disinfectant, such as lavender incense during childbirth. Incense burning is even more advantageous when accompanied with other therapies, such as massage, color therapy, and psychotherapy.
