A word of warning – DON’T add too much resin at first, because it produces a LOT of smoke!
Also if you use too much, the temperature of the charcoal can be reduced, and you can end up with a nasty-smelling cloud of steamy smoke (from the small amount of moisture always present in the resin). Start with no more than about 2 grams of resin – that’s approximately a quarter of a level teaspoonful.
Burning Incense Resin: Light the charcoal and place it in your incense holder. Hold the charcoal with tongs. The charcoal will then self-ignite across the surface. When the charcoal starts to go grey around the edges this is the time to add resin. Often people add sand to incense holder to help absorb heat.
