Charcoal Disks

Charcoal Disk

Charcoal disks are used to burn resin incense. Choose a charcoal disk that is the appropriate size for your incense burner and that is made from high-quality materials to ensure a clean burn.

Prepare your incense burner

Prepare Your Incense BurnerIf you're using a traditional incense burner, such as a censer or a bowl, fill it with sand or ash to protect the surface from the heat. If you're using a charcoal disk, place it on the burner and light the edge with a lighter or match. Wait for the charcoal to heat up and turn gray before adding the resin incense. Always use a firesafe dish for burning incense.

Add your incense

Add ResinOnce the charcoal is hot, sprinkle a small amount of resin incense onto it. The resin will begin to smoke and release its aroma. Add more incense as desired, being careful not to overload the charcoal disk.

Enjoy the aroma
