Electric incense burners have become increasingly popular as a safe, convenient and efficient way to enjoy the fragrance of incense. Furthermore, they make burning incense easier since there’s no need to constantly light or relight with charcoal.
Electric incense burners come in a range of shapes and sizes, so you’re sure to find one that meets your requirements. This is especially true if you like to use multiple types of incense.
The most common electric incense burner is an automatic model, though non-automatic ones exist as well. Since these don’t have a thermostat dial or energy regulator, you must manually turn them on and off at the mains switch.
This type of burner is ideal when you need to burn incense quickly, such as when you’re going away for a few days and don’t need it on all the time. However, if you use it regularly then an automatic model with an auto shutoff feature is recommended.
Electric incense burners come with a range of decorative designs, some very beautiful and perfect for adding an eye-catching touch to any room or office space.
These kinds of incense burners feature a metal bowl on top that holds either powdered incense powder or aromatic wood chips. You may even find some with a removable cup for easier cleanup after use.
Some of the most striking incense burners are made from metal and resin with a traditional Middle Eastern design. Not only do these burn frankincense perfectly, but they’re also great for aromatherapy purposes.
Another stunning style is a carved wooden burner. Inset with red stones that look like rubies, this burner boasts excellent quality and design at a higher cost than other designs. Although slightly more costly than others, its quality and design make it worthwhile investment.
Another simple wooden incense burner looks like a small cup. While not as strong or durable as other styles, this model still makes for an effective burner.
For an old-world aesthetic, consider the Bakhoor burner. Crafted out of solid gold metal, it features an exquisite traditional design featuring embossed studs and palm tree designs.
Although more expensive than some other styles, this one is very well-made and its traditional shape reminds me of the burners used in most Middle Eastern homes.
There’s also a more advanced version with an inline thermostat control knob, allowing you to adjust the heat level as required. This burner is user-friendly and suitable for burning incense in powder, resin or bakhoor forms.
When making incense, it’s essential to use low-medium temperatures. Higher temperatures can quickly burn delicate woods and resins, so test different combinations and see what works best for you.
