Burners are the foundation of any incense setup. They are what holds the charcoal in place and allow the smoke to flow from there, creating an ambiance that is relaxing and meditative. There are many different styles and designs to choose from, often with a lot of Asian symbolism like dragons or the Buddha. A popular choice is the backflow burner, which creates a flowing waterfall of calm smoke. It is so soothing to stare into the rippling stream that some people use it as a focus point while they meditate.
The backflow burner works by using a special type of incense cone and the ceramic burner itself. These cones are partially drilled through from the bottom to just under the tip, which allows the smoke to slip through and cascade down to the base of the burner. The special cones have a shorter burn time than regular incense cones and can be used for up to 15 minutes.
Ash catchers are an accessory that sits between the bowl and the down stem of a bong to prevent ash from entering the main water chamber. They also keep smoke and water clean, and can offer additional filtration through built-in percolators that allow for more diffused hits.
Some ash catchers have multiple percolators that provide an extra layer of filtration before inhalation, which leads to smoother hits and less coughing. Examples of this are the 90deg Fritted Disc Perc and Showerhead to Tree Perc Dual Chamber ash catcher, which has two separate chambers where the smoke first filters through the showerhead perc and then passes through the tree perc for additional diffusion before you inhale it.
It’s important to note that not all ash catchers fit all bongs. For instance, beakers with reducer down stems require shorter ash catchers. Also, the joint gender of your water pipe needs to match that of the ash catcher.
Tongs are a kitchen tool with large spoon-like tips that can grab and hold food. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes to handle different tasks. They are useful for flipping burgers on the grill, tossing pasta, and serving salads. They also help prevent bacterial cross-contamination by keeping hands away from scalding pots and pans.
Most tongs are made of stainless steel or plastic, with both materials having their own pros and cons. Metal can withstand high heat, while plastic may not be flexible enough for some jobs. Some tongs are color-coded to make it easy for employees to identify them.
Other types of tongs include ice tongs, which can grab citrus slices or other garnishes for drinks. They are usually similar to utility tongs in shape and application. Snail tongs, which are designed to grip the mollusk, are another type of cooking tongs. These tongs are typically used for serving food and can be locked so they don’t open accidentally.
With the addition of an incense spray, you can amplify the aromas of your favorite herbal blend. Sprays can also be used to refresh a room or add a special touch to your home décor. The sprays come in a variety of colors and styles including brown, silver and blue.
Incense is known to calm the mind, ease stress and help you fall asleep. Some popular sleep enhancing fragrances include lavender, vetiver and chamomile. To boost your concentration, try using incense with stimulating scents such as lemongrass citrus scents or geranium.
When you want to kick back and relax after a long day, light some incense and curl up on the couch with a book or magazine and listen to soft music or a podcast. Your me-time will feel ten times better with the added aromas of relaxing incense. Clean your burner regularly to keep resin from building up and overpowering the aromas you love.
