How to light your charcoal discs!

I've been receiving a lot of questions lately about how to light the charcoal discs that come with our incense kits and found this great video from Mountain Rose Herbs that demonstrates the lighting process!!  I'm really excited to share this with you guys and hope that it provides that much needed visual aid!  

The charcoal discs are super easy to light -- I usually hold them by one end and light the other.  They'll spark a bit, as you can see in the video, and then I put it on the shell (which should be on a heat proof surface).  Voila!  Now you can add your loose-herb incense and enjoy the aromas that are released!  

Natural tree resins can be burned for incense using a self-igniting charcoal round and a heat proof surface. These resins have been melted and enjoyed for their aromatherapeutic and spiritual benefits throughout the centuries.
