An oil burner can be used for resin as well as essential oils. We recommend you start by placing some foil on the dish of the oil burner. This will prevent the dish becoming resinous and stained. Light a tea candle and place in the oil burner. Sprinkle some Frankincense powder or a crushed resin on to the foil. There is no need to add water like with essential oils. A great way to burn without the smoky atmosphere.
