Incense Equipment

Incense Equipment

Welcome. In this section we list our equipment for burning herbal incense.

Twirling plumes of deliciously fragranced incense can enhance the ambience your home, bringing a sense of relaxation and mysticism. Joss sticks are straightforward enough, but if you want to burn loose incense, such as the 100% natural blends here at Indigo Herbs, how do you do it?

You can’t light loose incense, so you have to burn it on something. Which is where charcoal discs come in. Charcoal discs must always be placed in a heatproof container or dish of sand as they are, effectively, red-hot coals, with all the attendant hazards! For this reason, keep the curious fingers of children away, and do not leave burning discs unattended.

Light the charcoal with a lighter and place on its side, concave side uppermost. The fumes emitted by the disc are rather acrid and best not inhaled.

When the disk is ash-white all over, add just a pinch of incense – et voilà! It’s tempting to load up a charcoal disc with too much incense, but this will only slow down burning and may even stop the process. Maximum exposure to oxygen is important. Keep adding a pinch more, as needed.

To house the charcoal, we have two kinds of brass burners – see below – which are designed to be both safe and ornamental. In the smaller one, smoke from the incense whispers up through a chimney in the lid. The larger one is shaped like a lotus – the petals can be twisted open and shut as you wish, to control the plume of smoke released. Both charcoal burners are compatible with the charcoal disks, which are available in single tubes of 10 disks.

At Indigo Herbs we are passionate about premium quality botanicals. Explore the tabs on this page to find out more about the suggested use of this piece of equipment. At Indigo Herbs we are committed to empowering optimum health and nutrition and assisting you to take responsibility for your own health and wellbeing, by having access to many of natures healing botanicals.

Natural incense resins are simple and easy to use. The resins, dried leaves and woods need to be burnt to release their aromatic smoke. This smoke is a 100% pure and a great natural way to perfume a room. The resin is burnt on small charcoal disks, the disks need to be set in a heat resistant container for safety purposes. We recommend a purpose made incense burner that is made from brass.

The charcoal disk is lit and as it smoulders and turns grey the natural incense resins can be added. Additional incense can be added until the charcoal has burnt down. This incense experience is aromatic, heady and sensual. Why not bring out your inner perfume maker and enjoy blending different resins together to create the ideal aroma for an occasion.

I love the charcoal from indigo herbs, I think I left feedback for this before, before there were individual product review pages, and it is still top notch - burns well, evenly and lights first time, every time, all the way to the end of the packet!

thought this was bigger than it is, but it works brilliantly- just put something underneath it to prevent any damage to surfaces as metal conducts heat

Aromas have been used for their therapeutic qualities for 1000’s of years. Natural incense aromas are free from synthetic ingredients and can be uplifting and calming. 

Natural incense resins are simple and easy to use. The resins, dried leaves and woods need to be burnt to release their aromatic smoke. This smoke is a 100% pure and a great natural way to perfume a room. The resin is burnt on small charcoal disks, the disks need to be set in a heat resistant container for safety purposes. We recommend a purpose made incense burner that is made from brass.

The charcoal disk is lit and as it smoulders and turns grey the natural incense resins can be added. Additional incense can be added until the charcoal has burnt down. This incense experience is aromatic, heady and sensual. Why not bring out your inner perfume maker and enjoy blending different resins together to create the ideal aroma for an occasion. For full instructions go to our How to blend and use Incense page.

The Incense and Resin blenders kit is packed with 100% natural aromatic combustible materials that have been used in incense making for thousands of years. The resins can be ground down with a mortar & pestle into a powder and blended together to create a unique and personal aroma. It is advisable to light a charcoal disk and try a few different resins together to experiment with how the different aromas work together. In traditional perfumery the maker would look for a base, middle and top note to balance the overall final aroma.

1. Take a lighter or match to a Charcoal disk, and when it is fully alight then set it safely into the charcoal disk holder.

2. When the charcoal disk has turned grey and ash-like, then add a small amount of the plant resin, powder, bark or chips.

3. The individual incenses can be ground down to powder in a pestle & mortar and blended with some of the other unique incense aromas. This blended fine powder can then be added to the charcoal disk.

4. This plant matter will begin to smolder and release an aromatic smoke.

5. Set the lid on the charcoal burner, and enjoy the sensual experience of the aroma pervading the room.

6. Add more incense when required. 

To Store: Keep the incense in a sealed container to keep it fresh and preserve the natural aromas.

  • All ingredients produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • 100% pure botanical ingredients, absolutely nothing added.

Manufacture Process

Botanical resin is tapped from different tree species. This is done by scraping the bark and allowing the resins to bleed out and harden. These hardened resins are called tears. There are numerous species and varieties of trees used, each producing a slightly different type of resin.

Tapping is ordinarily done 2 to 3 times a year with the final taps producing the best tears due to their higher aromatic chemical constituent content.
