The formula and scent of incense used in temples, shrines, Churches, rituals and ceremonies throughout the world vary widely. However, the principle purpose seems to remain as method of purifying the surroundings & enabling us to connect more closely to gods, after life, demons, & many other spiritual connections.

Fire and Safety Warnings!
Charcoal incense burning involves a small hot coal, a very, very hot coal! This is like a little mini BBQ so it must always be on a heat proof plate or surface like a tile. It must also be level secure and away from children and animals. Like any naked flame it should never be left unattended at any time. We would suggest having a glass of water to one side just in case! Ive never had to use it, but Its always better to be safe than sorry, if you did have to put the coal out at any point in a hurry water can be slowly poured over it. It's a lot less messy to simply let it burn out in its own time, but if you need to it can be drowned very quickly. Under normal circumstances you can simply place the bowl and plate in the sink to cool off for piece of mind.
