Incense cones are a popular choice for adding fragrance to a space because they are easy to use and come in a variety of scents.

How to use incense cones:



  • Gather your materials:

You'll need an incense holder or burner and a pack of incense cones.

Incense holders and burners can be made of ceramic, metal, or other materials, and have a flat surface for the cone to rest on, as well as a hole or indentation from the smoke to escape from.

  • Choose a location:

Choose a location for your incense holder or burner that is out of reach of children and pets, and away from any flammable materials.

  • Light the incense cone:

To light the cone, hold it at a slight angle and use a match or lighter to ignite the narrow end.

Once the cone is lit, place it in the incense burner.

  • Enjoy the fragrance:

Incense cones will burn for about 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the cone and the type of incense being used.

Pay attention to the burning time of your incense cones and never leave them unattended.

When the cone has burned down to the holder or burner, it's time to extinguish it.

You can do this by carefully pressing the tip of the cone into a fire-safe surface, such as a dish of sand, to extinguish the flame.
