- Light the end of the incense cone at a slight angle using a lighter or match, and let the flame burn for about 10-15 seconds, enough to create a small flame.
- If you don't let the flame burn long enough, it may go out before it burns out completely (about 25 minutes).
- Blow on the flame to extinguish it. The incense cone should produce a glowing ember and a wisp of smoke, and will continue to burn on its own.
- Be sure to burn incense only on a non-flammable, heat-resistant medium. Please note that the bottom of the incense cone may leave a residual stain on the ceramic holders during combustion.
- Pro Tip: The bottom of our pewter incense lids make for a perfect burner.
- Burn incense in a well-ventilated room away from flammable materials, and never leave incense burning unattended or near children, pets, or drafts.
- Because we care: incense boxes can be reused after use as storage - or whatever!
- We recommend burning our incense cones directly on the box of your incense cone container - the lid works as a great heat-protected burner, but it keeps your incense cone from smoldering entirely as a precaution by limiting the amount of oxygen.
