Powder Incense and Resins

Of all of the five senses which we humans are blessed with, the sense of smell is perhaps the most spontaneous.  It is also the most strongly connected of the senses to the areas of the brain that process memory, meaning that even the smallest whiff of a smell that you had previously connected to a certain place can bring you back to that place in mere moments.  The sense of smell is directly wired to your brain, unlike the other senses, meaning that the link between smells and brain response is very rapid and quite ancient and primordial in nature.
*Burn VS Smolder
Rather than use the phrase Burning Incense, you might think of Smoldering Incense. Smoldering is much more accurate and will allow the incense to burn slowly oppose to be lost to the flame.. Most incense is ignited, then the fire is extinguished. This leads to smoldering, the actual "burn" of the incense.
*ALWAYS use a heatproof container to burn your incense and the container will catch any falling ash. My favorite is a small cast iron cauldron with legs to dissipate the heat from the surface it sits on. I fill the cauldron with a little sand that also absorbs the heat of the charcoal. Test the heat of the cauldron legs often. Consideration of what you sit the container on is equally important as plastic will melt, wood will scorch and glass can shater if the heat is not properly dissipated befoer contact.
*NEVER leave your incense burning unattended. Pets and Children are naturally curious and can knock over your incense, possibly starting a fire or injuring themselves.
*ALWAYS keep your incense away from your pets, children, draperies, or anything that might ignite because it comes into contact with fire.
*ALWAYS be sure that your incense is completely extinguished before you dispose of the ashes. Ashes from charcoal, in particular, can remain hot for many hours after the charcoal "burns out". This is a possibility for all types of incense. Make sure that your incense is cold to the touch, before disposing of the remains.
