About Dhoop Cone Incense
Cone incense is pure incense shaped into a cone. There is no stick inside. Cone incense comes in formed in various sizes and degrees of shape, traditionally incense cones stand about one inch tall and the base of the cone is slightly smaller than the circumfrance of a dime. Incense cones require a different type of burner than incense sticks, the burner should be metal, soapstone, or wooden with a metal surface on which to place the cone. Be careful, incense cones get hot and they may heat up the incense burner as well. Always place your incense burners on a protected surface. View more Incense Cones >>
How to Light Cone Incense
Before you begin, be sure to have your incense cone burner ready and place it onto a protected surface. Make sure your table top is protected, the burner may heat up and damage the surface. To light your incense cone, hold the wide end of the cones in your hand or tongs, and use a lighter, match, or candle to light the tip of the incenes cone. Let the fire burn for about 10-15 seconds, then blow out, or fan until the flame goes out. The tip of the cone should burn red hot, but should not have a flame. View Incense Burners >>
Like all the other incense, the cone should begin to smolder, letting out a fragrant smoke. The cone MUST smolder, or you will only get a charcoal/fire type of fragrance. This is the main reason people complain that the incense smells bad, or only burns for 3 minutes, because they allow the incense to burn rather than smolder! If you let your dhoop incense smolder, your incense will probably burn like this for about 30 minutes. This will depend on the type of dhoop incense and the size.
Set the lit incense cone, wide side down, onto your cone burner. Make sure the area is clear of all materials that may catch fire. Allow the fragrant smoke to rise and relax you. Allow the incense to burn completely out in the burner. If you wish to exhaust the incense early, either tap or press the tip of the cone into the fireproof area of the burner until the glowing tip has broken off or gone our, or you can extinguish the incense by running under water. Make sure the incense is absolutely cold and exhausted before discarding it.
To light stick, cone and cylinder incense, hold a lit match or a lighter flame to the coated end of the incense for ten seconds or more, then remove the flame. The incense will generally extinguish on its own and begin to slowly burn, but if it continues to flame, you can simply blow it out and it should proceed to smolder.
The wooden sticks or "punks" on which stick incense is rolled come in various sizes and thicknesses. Some are thick wooden sticks and others are thinner. Most incense burners are designed to accomodate these various thicknesses by providing you with larger holes. Better larger than smaller. If you find your incense stick is too small or too thin for your burner, don't worry, there is an easy fix. Basically you will double up (thicken up) the wooden stick part and insert it into the hole. This can be acheived by using the wooden remains of an old incense stick or by bending over the bottom of your unused incense stick and inserting both pieces into the hole. If more thickness is desired add a third piece to thicken it up.
Incense burns slowly, so it is easy to forget that it is still a live flame. It is important to always be conscious of where your incense is and what it might come in contact with. Never leave burning incense unattended. Don't leave the house while incense is still burning - if you need to put a piece of incense out, turn it upside down and bury the flame in sand or ash. This will allow you to continue using the incense in the future.
Always make sure that no part of burning incense comes in touch with wood or other flammable materials. Never burn incense with anything directly above it, as the rising smoke can cause discolorations and possibly fire. Incense burners themselves can also get very hot, so be careful not to place them on wooden surfaces or to touch metal burners after you have been burning incense in them. And be sure to keep in mind what type of incense is appropriate for what type of burner and where these burners can be placed for maximum safety.
