|Incense Sticks, Cones, and Molds are burned by simply lighting one
edge, waiting a few seconds until the tip glows red, then gently blowing or carefully fanning out the flame.
The incense stick, cone, or mold needs to stand, sit, or lay in a
such as an incense bowl or cup filled with ash, sand, sea
salt, etc. You can use a seashell filled with ash, a ceramic cup,
metal bowl, etc. The limits are
bounded only by the need for a safe, fire-proof material.
There are many specialty incense stick holders available, if you
choose one just make
sure it will work for the thickness and length of the sticks which you'll
use and/or make.
