Excelsior Charcoal Tablets
These charcoal tablets or briquettes come in a pack of 10 sealed in a foil wrapper, each tablet is approximately 33mm in diameter.
The charcoal is coated with a special material which means that it can be lit with a lighter or a match. The coating sparks across the charcoal surface and then should be left for a few minutes until it has started to heat through. These excelsior tablets are fast lighting, smoke-free, odorless, tasteless and long burning and means they shouldn't interfere with the scent of the incense.
The charcoal does get very hot and can glow red so great care should be taken. The disc should be placed inside a heat resistant container with earth inside (if required) to shield the strong heat. Once alight the resin can be spooned gently onto the charcoal and the resin becomes an incense and the delightful aromas are released. You can then add more resin as required.
Safety note: Never leave unattended. Do not place container on a flammable surface.
