Incense Cones

Incense Cones

Unlike sticks, cones lack a bamboo centre. They burn with a dense area of fragrant material, which helps produce a strong scent.

To create the waterfall effect, place a cone in an incense burner that’s large enough to hold it. Select one that has a base that’s bowl-shaped and filled with sand or another nonflammable material to catch the falling ash.


Unlike incense sticks which come in a stick form with upward traveling smoke, incense cones have a hollow tunnel in the middle, so when they are lit they produce denser smoke and it travels downward. They do not require a special incense holder with holes as they fit into any old bowl or plate you have in the house.

To start, use a lighter or matchstick to light the tip of your incense cone. Ensure that you place it on or in a vessel that is heatproof and wide enough to allow for proper positioning of the cone. Lastly, lay a layer of sand in the bottom of your container to prevent the incense cone from falling over.

Keep your incense burning for about 20-30 minutes. Be sure to gently blow out the flame once the cone is completely burned through and the tip no longer glows. This will help to avoid ash dropping everywhere, especially if your vessel is a glass one.


Incense cones are often scented using essential oils and natural extracts. They can be infused with herbs like lavender, rose, and ylang-ylang to help you relax and unwind. They can also be scented with resins like frankincense and myrrh. These fragrances are known to inspire creativity and stimulate the brain.

They can also be scented with powders made from materials such as nanmu powder (similar to Makko powder) and a variety of wood planks including sandalwood. Several other powders and fixatives are also included in these blends.

To light an incense cone, use a lighter or matches and gently ignite the tip until it glows orange. Then, you can enjoy it while it burns for around 30 minutes. Ensure that you keep it away from anything flammable.


Using an incense waterfall is a great way to add a touch of elegance to your home. This type of incense burns slower than sticks and has a stronger fragrance. It can also create a calming atmosphere. Some of these holders also catch ash, which makes cleanup easy.

The waterfall effect is caused by the way that these cones are designed. They have a hole drilled into them that you align with the hole in the incense burner. The smoke from the incense is heavier than air and is pulled down through this hole to create the waterfall effect.

This type of incense is often used to cleanse crystals and gemstones. This is done to remove any negative energy or vibrations that may be clinging to the stones. This can help them provide optimal healing benefits for those who use them. It is important to never leave a burning incense unattended as the smoke can cause a fire.


If you want a more intense scent that slowly fills a room, incense cones are an excellent choice. They are a combination of natural binding agents, resins, oils and herbs that are formed into a cone shape.

A good incense maker will disclose what ingredients they use in their products, so you know what you’re getting. This knowledge is especially important if you buy from a company that sells cheap backflow cones.

Incense cones emit a smokier aroma than sticks and have no wick, which helps them spread their fragrance more quickly and evenly. Their unique aroma helps create a peaceful and serene ambiance perfect for meditation. You can also use them to freshen up a workspace, clean your house or simply energize yourself. Each box contains 30 incense cones that can elevate a space with a soft fragrance in under an hour. To start the process, place a cone on a secure heat and flame resistant holder and light it.
