Step-by-step guide: How to burn frankincense:
What you’ll need
* 1 piece of frankincense resin
* 1 charcoal disc
* Small set of tongs
* Incense burner or heat proof dish filled with sand
Hold the charcoal disc with the tongs and light by holding a flame to one side of the disc, until it glows and sparks.
Place the disc in the burner or heat proof dish and wait for it to stop smoking. If it is smoking a lot, you can pop it outside on your window sill until it stops.
The disc will slowly turn grey – if you blow on it this will happen more quickly and across a wider surface of the disc. Be careful as this can cause the disc to spark, so don’t hold your face too close when you blow on it!
Select a piece of frankincense resin – top tip, if you’re burning it in a relatively small space, choose a smaller piece, as this will make it less smoky and it won’t burn for as long.
Place the piece of frankincense on top of the charcoal disc and let it burn. If it stops smoking, you can turn the piece of frankincense over so it burns on the other side.
