Incense cone burners offer an exquisite way to enjoy the delicate fragrance and ambience created by incense. However, they need regular maintenance in order to remain beautiful and functional.
Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to keep your incense burner sanitary and free of smells. One method is replacing the sticks with fresh ones periodically; another is cleaning the holder at the end of the burner regularly; this helps prevent buildup of ash or oils that could create an unpleasant odour.
The initial step in disposing of incense ash is to take it out of the burner and place it in a paper bag for disposal. Doing this ensures you do not violate any health or safety guidelines for disposing of incense ash, keeping your home or apartment safe from fires.
If your incense burner is ceramic, a mild soap and water solution should suffice to clean it. Doing this will also help eliminate odors from the burner and make it easier for you to use.
After each use, use a soft brush or sponge to wipe the insides of your incense burner clean. You may also choose to wash it in the sink to eliminate any stains that may have formed.
After cleaning your incense cone burner, you can add essential oil or tea tree oil for a refreshing scent. You may also try using some lemon juice or vinegar to neutralize any odors that may have remained.
Before lighting the incense, always place it on a holder specifically designed for burning incense (such as a candle or tea light). Doing this will guarantee that the cone won’t slip out during use.
Once lit, incense should begin to smoke rapidly due to the heat generated by both the incense and burner. However, if after several minutes there is still no smoke produced, try adjusting your burner’s temperature or trying it in another holder.
Furthermore, if the incense you use smells unpleasant, you may need to switch up the type of incense. This is especially relevant if the incense has been soaked in tobacco essence or fragrance; these can create an lingering, unpleasant odour.
To avoid this problem, opt for an incense cone that has been infused with a fragrance or essence rather than one infused with tobacco. You can find many varieties on the market that have been scented with rose, lavender or vanilla scents.
For a more natural scent, you can opt for small incense cones with fewer ingredients. These will provide a much subtler and pleasant aroma than cigarettes often give off without the lingering harshness.
