But knowing the right way to burn a cone incense is essential. For thisreason, we will discuss how we can use cone incense and see the reasons peoplelove to use it.


Steps On How To Use Cone Incense 

We have two suitable methods that we can use to get our coneincense prepared. Hence we are going to take the methods one after the other:

Method 1

Method 1 of 2: Cone positioning and lightning:-

Step 1:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Get a heatproof container that can withstand and should theincense cone because of the heat that the incense cone produces. It is like aceramic bowl or ashtray if you don't know a heatproof container. After that,you need to spread a layer of sand up to 1cm(0.39 in) with a thick bottom thatwill enable it to distribute heat.

Just keep in mind that a suitable container is the one thatcan be able to hold the cone and should be heat resistant. It is also glad toknow that incense usually comes with a metal disk that you can quickly turn on.It is important to remember that you do not place your container on anythingflammable, for example, paper, lampshade or curtain.

Step 2:
After getting the correct container, the next thing to do is to face the point of the cone upward while the flat and wide part should be at the bottom. Next, set up the heatproof container and put your cone inside, making it stay in the middle of the container. If the container is filled up with sand, make sure to position the cone to avoid falling over evenly.

Step 3:
The incense cone tip will be lighted up using a candle or match stick. Before taking the lighter or matches away, ensure that the flame has come upon the cone. You do not need to allow the flame to appear for a very long time; leaving it for 5-10 seconds is enough.

Step 4:
Keep an eye on the colour the tip of the cone produces because the right colour should be orange, not a dark look. But if the tip of the come looks dark after taking the flame away, then you can relight it until you get an orange glow coming out of the tip. Hence once the large flame has disappeared, an orange glow should continue to go out of the incense.

Step 5:
To make the flames entirely out, you have to fan the incense cone gently. You might wonder if it is necessary, well, absolutely because the flames have to be replaced with a smouldering orange tip so that you can get a pleasant scent. You can either use a piece of paper or your hands to fan the incense cone gently.

Step 6:
You can have an excellent period with your incense for up to 20-30 minutes because it will continue to burn right from the top of the tip of the cone to the bottom. It takes 30 minutes for the incense cone to completely burn if you want the entire cone to burn out. Remember that, unlike other incense, the incense cone produces a lot of smoke.

You do not need to force the cones to burn up; instead, the cone burns out by itself once it has entirely been exhausted.


Method 2

Method 2 of 2: Troubleshooting Incense Cone-:

Step 1:
If your incense cone does not go out 10 seconds after lighting it up, you have to blow out the flames gently. Try to blow out the flames because an incense cone with a solid flame usually produces a lot of smoke and a less pleasant smell.

Step 2:
If you discover that the smouldering tip has gone out, you have to give your incense cone more oxygen. Give enough oxygen to your incense cone to prevent the orange glow from going out. Give the cone more air by removing the lid of your incense holder. Then you can relight the cone if you are confident it has enough oxygen.

Step 3:
If your cone is oily or brand new, then try to dry the come. Incense cones that are now usually used to be very oily, which you might not desire. It would be best to gently use a paper towel to blot the incense cone to remove any excess moisture or oil for the cone to burn effectively.

Step 4:

Keeping your incense cone away from windows or drafty areasis best because much breeze might not make your incense cone burn well.
