David Crow writes beautifully about the uses and qualities of incense in this must read article.
A note on incense aromatics from David Crow:
“Just as essential oils have top, middle and base notes that appear during the dryout phases, the same goes for incense. The fine lighter and sweeter top notes will come out in the first few minutes of burning, followed by heavier notes, and eventually only the base notes will remain. The base notes will be smokier and more unpleasant.”
“If you use only the metal tray for burning, these base notes will be what will accumulate on the tray after a few uses. After two or three times, whenever someone puts a nice piece of resin or wood on the burner, the lighter and sweeter notes will be overshadowed with the smoky charcoal notes from the tar in the bottom. Therefore, to get the finest top and middle notes, one should use a clean foil cup each time, which also prevents the tedious work of trying to clean the burner. However, the cups do not need to be thrown out, as resins will form a residue that will simply fall out if the cup is bent around a little, something that cannot be done with the burner.”
*Please note: our cups are larger and sturdier now, they should be used directly on the heating plate, and not on top of the tray that comes with the burner.
Ease of Use: This black and gold ceramic Incense Burner is very easy to use and assemble and comes to you beautifully packaged. The Electric Incense Burner adds a whole new dimension to the ancient art of incense aromatics. While previously you would have needed to ignite a charcoal, this practical device allows you to enjoy your resins, agarwood, and other aromatic woods with ease and enjoyment.
You control the temperature: Unlike a charcoal, which burns hot, the Electric Incense Burner has a temperature control dial so you choose how hot you would like to burn your precious incenses. What this means for you is that you can prolong the burn time of a tear of frankincense or your piece of palo santo. Lower burn temperatures equates to very little smoke and no scorching.
Custom Burn: While you are sitting with this device you will notice the ability to evenly burn your incense, and if you would like, you can turn the dial up or down to increase or decrease the amount of aroma. We find that resins have a superior burn with the controlled temperature, and do not burn too hot or quickly, eliminating a smoky experience.
Includes: Inside the box you will find the 4” ceramic burner with heating element (complete with thermostat temperature control), base and top, the metal resin tray, five reusable foil cup liners, as well as two tools to assist you: incense tongs and a small spoon.
Tips for Usage: Most resins will start to burn at 210 degrees, but can also burn at full power, or 250 degrees. Allow the burner to heat up for a few minutes before placing your aromatics into the foil cup. For a unique experience you can powder your resin tears or agarwood with a mortar and pestle and add this powder to the foil cup. This will produce a lot of aroma quickly for a powerful way to begin a meditation or welcome guests. To reuse your foil cups, allow the resin residue to harden and then bend the tray around a bit until the dried resin crumbles and can be removed. Please note, our foil cups are now larger, you will need to remove the tray that comes with the burner in order for them to fit. They are also sturdier, so they can withstand direct heat from the heating plate. Please use this on a heat proof surface and keep the cord safe from pets and children. The unit does not have an automatic shut off, so make sure to turn the dial to the off position or unplug when you are finished your incense session.

I ordered the Electric Incense Burner and tried to order more foil cup liners, but they are not available. Where can I find more. Five is not enough.
How did I live without it!?
My first "firing"...this is Fantastic! Wonderful to finally smell the frankincense without the smoke! Also, the slow burn of the resins vs. the endless dumping on the charcoal, I figure this burner will pay for itself eventually :)
<br>Lungs (and neighbors) are happy too!
Thank you for your review, Olivia! We realize that the tradition charcoal method for burning incense woods and resins is always practical for everyone. We're so happy that this electronic device has worked for you and that your lungs are happy!
Drop the coal, invest in this!
So far, I love this thing. It works great! I don't see why anyone would want to go with charcoal anymore now that we have this. No charcoal is completely safe. With this, my puppy and I can take in the health benefits of resins without the health detriments of burning coal. I have only tried frankincense so far with this burner but will next be trying white copal and dragon's blood. This is definitely worth the price and investment rather than continuously buying coal and inhaling the smoke. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your review of this product! The traditional charcoal method of burning incense works great when you want the more traditional ceremonial experience. We like the ease of this device for when you want the benefits of burning incense, without the hassle. We're so please that it works great for you!
