All you need to know about self burning incense sticks, cones, flat coils, hanging spirals, and dhoop. Step-by-step instructions that will really get you smoking.

Incense Sticks, Incense Cones, Flat Coils, Hanging Spirals, Dhoop (Dry & Moist)

Burning Incense Sticks

  • Light the tip of the incense stick. If your incense has a bamboo stick, hold the uncoated portion of the bamboo stick and light the opposite "coated" end. If it's a solid stick you can light either end. 

  • Gently extinguish the flame by blowing or fanning. Your incense should glow red and give off a delicate wisp of pale fragrant smoke indicating that it is slowly burning or "smoldering." 

  • Place the unlit end in an appropriate incense burner.

Burning Incense I


Burning incense can brighten your day in a moments time... but if not used with care it can easily put a big damper on any occasion. Here are some basic tips for keeping all your incense burning experiences safe and pleasant. You're probably familiar with most of them -- but who knows, you just might find one or two gems in the bunch.

Caution: This is Hot Stuff!

  • It seems obvious, but it can never "hurt" to mention it. Always use caution -- burning incense is hot stuff. 

  • Brushing against the glowing tip of a burning incense can cause a significant burn on the skin or ruin a favorite article of clothing. 

  • Always place your burner on a heat-resistant surface, such as a trivet or ceramic tile. Depending on what method you're using the outside of your censer may get very hot. 

  • If you're using charcoal tablets to burn non-combustible incense always use a burner that can take the heat. Charcoal can burn at up to 1500 degrees F. -- that's very, very hot! See below.
