Our Shamans blend is a masculine inspired rustic metallic sweet smell of all ages. With rising scents of mugwort and copal, this proprietary incense blend will take you on a journey beyond oneself allowing you to connect deeper not only to the spirit within but also to the spirit of everything around you. Each herb and resin is a component whispered from the creator in the spirit of cleansing, protecting, and downloading and interpreting dreams. Within it are high notes of Dragon’s Blood & Frankincense, which are known to ignite kundalini energy that allows you to open yourself to the journey of purifying and calling in goodness into your life. (2 oz. loose incense blend)
Just light a charcoal disc and place in censar, incense burner, or a heat safe platform (i.e. marble, stone, etc). Incense burner sand can be added to the bottom of the container so minimal charring occurs.
If it's self-igniting charcoal (contains potassium nitrate) you will see tiny sparks as you light it and it will ignite quickly so never hold it in your hand! If you need to hold the charcoal over an open flame to ignite it, use tweezers or tongs to hold it.
If your charcoal tablet has a concave indentation on one side place it in your burner with the hollow facing up. Use the "bowl" to hold your incense ingredients.
Wait until the charcoal is glowing red hot and is covered with grayish-white ash. This could take about 5 minutes or so. If you like you can fan or blow on the charcoal to help get the whole tablet started.
When ready sprinkle a pinch or two (about 1/4 -1/2 teaspoon) of incense (e.g. resin, dried herbs, etc.) directly on top of the hot charcoal. The incense will begin to smolder. Be careful not to place too much incense on the charcoal or you may smother it and you'll have to start over.
When the smoke begins to thin out, add more incense. The charcoal will stay hot enough to burn incense for about 45 minutes to an hour.
