how to make an incense burner

Burning incense has many benefits; it’s relaxing and can even help you unwind after a long day. If you’re searching for an eye-catching way to add flair to your decor, why not make an incense burner?

DIY incense holders are an excellent opportunity to express yourself creatively and use your clay craft skills. Not only that, but they’re also cost-effective and simple to make!


An incense burner is an efficient way to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home. Not only does it serve as an aromatic dispenser, but also relaxes your body and eliminates negative energies.

Incense holders come in a range of materials, such as wood, ceramic or metal. Usually featuring an opening that accepts the incense stick which is then placed inside the burner for burning.

Incense is often made with wood powder as its base material; however, other plant materials can also be utilized. For instance, pine needles provide a smooth burn when combined with certain types of incense.

Incense makers often employ a fixative as their base ingredient. This preserves the delicate top notes of fragrances, allowing them to last longer in circulation.


An incense burner, also known as a censer, is an instrument used for safely burning incense and other aromatic materials. They come in various styles and materials.

Making an incense burner at home requires only some basic tools and materials. It may take some patience and practice, but the end result will be rewarding.

Non-combustible incense (incense of the ancients) consists of loose mixtures or pellets made by grinding and mixing ingredients, often including soft resins, balsams and dried fruits. This type of incense can be burned directly over a small campfire or on hot rocks on the outer rim of a campfire.

Combustible incense – cones, sticks and coils – is created by pressing loose incense mixtures or pellets into a solid form and adding binding material and combustible material. These mixtures can then be burned on charcoal, makko or mica atop charcoal for an aromatic experience.


An incense burner is a vessel used for burning incense, usually made of solid material. They come in various sizes, shapes and designs and can be found across most religious and cultural contexts.

When incense is burned, it emits smoke containing particulate matter (PM), gas products and other organic compounds. These pollutants can contribute to air pollution, asthma and health issues; they have even been known to increase the risk of pulmonary fibrosis and leukemia.

These particles can penetrate the lungs and weaken your immune system, as well as being toxic to the respiratory tract and known carcinogens – particularly in children.

To craft an incense burner, you will need a mold and some resin. Both items can be found at most craft stores.


Burning incense is an excellent way to lift your mood, promote relaxation and purify the air. Not only that, but it’s also an economical way to add a beautiful aesthetic touch to any space.

Censers (also known as incense burners, aroma burners, pastille burners or ash burners) are vessels for burning incense or perfume in solid form. They come in various sizes, structures and materials of construction and have been around since ancient times around the world.

Incense burners’ design varies according to the culture and religion they symbolize. For instance, censing has a long-standing tradition in China and plays an essential role in daily life.

In the Catholic Church, incense is burned in a vessel called a thurible during important ceremonies and liturgical services. This large metal bowl hangs from chains with hot coals and the incense inside; it’s then swung back and forth to release its aromatic smoke.
