HOW TO USE INCENSE
For powdered incense, place the lit charcoal in a brass bowl with a foot to prevent the furniture from burning. If the charcoal becomes an ember, put a pinch of incense on it and the smoke starts to come out. Do not add too much incense powder to avoid smothering the burning coal.
Incense cubes or sticks are used without charcoal. Light the end of the cube and extinguish the flame after 40 seconds. The cube burns itself. If you don’t use the stick anymore, just crush the end. It can still be used.
For the incense in cone, its mode of use is like the incense in stick. Light the end and put out the flame after 10 seconds. We crush the end to extinguish the combustion in progress.
