Use this resin in charcoal burners and on incense burner sieves. Using a metal spoon, add a very small amount of resin on top of the hot charcoal releasing the fragrant incense smoke. You can repeat as desired until the charcoal is exhausted. When finished, allow the charcoal to completely cool in the burner before discarding. When in doubt, dowse it with water.
