Firstly make sure you have a heat proof incense burner. Terracotta is the best material as it can withstand the heat. Use a lighter to heat the charcoal held with a pair of tongs. Place the charcoal onto the incense burner. Wait for the charcoal to fully heat (30secs). Choose your favourite Frankincense and place on top of charcoal. Sit back and enjoy the aromatic smoke.
