Natural Styrax Resin Incense
Resin incense is a form of incense that relies on raw materials from aromatic plants and herbs. Resins are hardened secretions of plants, particularly coniferous trees. Some of the most well known forms of resin that have been used for incense in the west are frankincense and myrrh, which were first used by the ancient Egyptians and which were once worth more than their weight in gold, so important were they as part of religious ritual.
How to// In order to burn resin incense you will require a few more tools than you will for burning sticks, spirals, or cones. For instance, since resin will not remain lit and burn on its own, you will first need to obtain charcoal discs to provide heat to release the scent. Pure-burning charcoal discs will burn long, and are only slightly larger than a quarter dollar coin. It is best to look for charcoal that does not contain saltpetre, as this chemical makes the charcoal burn too hot and produces an unpleasant scent. If burned correctly over a bamboo charcoal, resin can burn and produce scent for a very long time.
You will also need a bowl or urn capable of withstanding the heat of burning charcoal. Specialized brass urns, or censers, work well, while also adding a nice decorative touch to any décor. Those who are interested in burning resin incense are also advised to find a pair of tongs to handle the charcoal (which, once it gets going, can obviously cause some major damage to unprotected fingers).
To burn your resin, place the charcoal in your urn on top of a bed of sand or ash to further absorb the heat. Apply a match or lighter for 10-20 seconds until the charcoal self-ignites (you may have to hold the disc in the air in your tongs to facilitate the lighting process). Give the charcoal two or three minutes to warm up and go gray around the edges. Next, add resin incense on top of the charcoal. The resin will begin to burn, thus releasing its essential oils for you to enjoy. Remember, with resin you have flexibility with your experience. Don't be afraid to experiment with mixtures.
