HOW TO BURN
Resins will not burn on their own, they will require heat from either an resin/oil burner or charcoal disk.
▵ using a dedicated resin burner releases much more of the true aroma of the resin than charcoal disks and also creates far less smoke. Place a small piece of foil in the well of your resin burner and lay a small piece of resin on top; this prevents lots of mess and cleaning after use. Electric oil burners or candle lit oil burners also work well.
▿ Never leave an oil burner un-attended. Keep out of reach of children.
▵ Fill your charcoal burner 3/4 full with sand or rocks to absorb some of the heat. Then place your burner on a heat resistant surface. Using tongs to hold the charcoal tablet, light it following the instructions provided with your charcoal. Place the hot charcoal onto the bed of sand inside your charcoal burner and allow the charcoal 5-15 minutes to fully come to temperature, indicated by a layer of ash forming on the tablet before carefully adding the desired quantity of resin to the top of the hot disk.
