Incenses have been
burned for over 3000 years. Its’ history can be traced throughout civilisation,
from continent to continent. Perhaps the earliest form of aromatherapy, each
ingredient was chosen for its’ own special power. Incense is still used by many
cultures to ward off evil spirits, to worship their gods, to honour their dead and heal the ill. Whatever
the occasion, enjoy the aroma.
☆*To use loose incense, simply light the charcoal until it sparkles. Put it down in the incense burner. Wait a
couple of minutes until it is glowing hot, this makes it less smoky. Then add a
small amount of the loose incense. The charcoal burns for 1.5 hours. You can keep
adding incense every 10 minute or so, if you want a stronger aroma.
Be careful with the charcoal, as gets really really hot and heed fire
