Incense Safety Instruction
Burning incense is a practice that can be relaxing and enjoyable, but it also poses some risks. One of the main hazards associated with burning incense is the potential for fire. As such, it's important to exercise caution and use common sense when using incense.
Firstly, never leave burning incense unattended, as this can increase the risk of fire. It's also crucial to use a proper incense holder or burner when burning incense, as this will ensure that any ash will fall onto a heat-proof surface. It's important to avoid burning incense near flammable materials and to refrain from spraying flammable aerosols or other flammable substances near burning incense. Droughts can also pose a risk as they can blow smoldering incense across the room, so it's important to avoid them. Additionally, it's important to keep incense out of reach of children and pets.
Another consideration is the location in which incense is burned. It's essential to avoid burning incense in an unventilated area or closed room, as this can increase the risk of respiratory problems. If you have asthma or other respiratory issues, it's wise to seek medical advice before using incense. In some people, incense can cause headaches or migraines, so it's important to stop burning incense if you experience any negative effects.

In terms of incense pack sizes and burn times, it's important to note that the information provided on many incense listings is intended as a guide only. Most incense is packaged by weight, and the number of sticks per packet can vary from one batch to the next. For incense packaged by weight, the number of sticks per packet is given as a guide only, not as a promise. Burn times can also vary depending on several different factors. A slight breeze from a window or an air conditioning vent can cause incense to burn faster, as can using a ceiling fan on a low setting. Burn times can also vary from batch to batch, as incense is made from natural materials that can change from season to season and year to year. The oil content and moisture content of incense can both affect burn times.
The type of burner used can also affect burn times. If a burner encloses the incense in any way, it can restrict air flow and cause the incense to burn slower. In some cases, the burner may restrict air flow so much that the incense won't burn properly and will self-extinguish. This is particularly true of cone burners, especially those shaped like dragon heads or castles.
While burning incense can be a relaxing and enjoyable experience, it's essential to exercise caution and use incense in a safe manner. By following these guidelines, you can safely enjoy the benefits of burning incense.
