Incense kit to get you started burning incense

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary materials:

  • Resin incense: Choose a high-quality resin incense, such as the genuine Prinknash Abbey incense, known for its exceptional fragrance and purity.
  • Charcoal tablets/discs: These tablets/discs are specifically designed for burning resin incense and can be easily found at most spiritual or speciality stores.
  • Heat-resistant container: Select a heat-resistant container, such as a small ceramic bowl or a traditional incense burner, to safely hold the burning charcoal and resin.
  • Tweezers or tongs: These tools will help you handle the hot charcoal safely.
  • Lighter or matches: You'll need a flame source to ignite the charcoal tablet.

Step 2: Prepare the Charcoal Tablet

Using your tweezers or tongs, hold the charcoal tablet over a flame source until it begins to spark and crackle. This process may take a few seconds. Once the tablet is lit, place it in your heat-resistant container, preferably on a bed of sand or ash to protect the surface underneath or use a heatproof mat, such as a slate coaster or 2 as needed.

Step 3: Add the Resin Incense

Once the charcoal tablet is fully ignited and going grey all over, it's time to add the resin incense. Depending on how large your space is, you may need to adjust the amount accordingly. Using the multifunction tongs or a spoon of your choice, take a small amount of resin, and gently place it on top of the charcoal. As the resin heats up, it will release its aromatic smoke, filling the air with its delightful fragrance. Add more as needed. One whole disc should burn for around an hour, so you can add more incense to it later if required.

Step 4: Enjoy the Aroma

Now that the resin incense is burning, take a moment to relax and enjoy the soothing aroma. You can sit nearby and let the fragrance envelop your senses or move around the room to distribute the scent evenly. Remember to never leave burning incense unattended and keep it away from flammable objects, children and pets. It will be very hot.

Step 5: Extinguish the Charcoal

Generally you can leave the coal in the burner and after an hour it will no longer be hot enough to burn incense, but it will still be too hot to touch. If you try to remove the coal from the burner, you may find that it falls apart. If you must extinguish it, then remove it carefully over a sink, perhaps best in to a metal sink.

Left in the burner it will eventually cool down, we recommend leaving it and protecting it from children and pets for at least three hours. Do not leave it unattended during this time. Make sure it is safe.

Never dispose of hot charcoal in the rubbish bin or any flammable material.
