Three Kings, is the world’s leading brand when it comes to quick-light charcoal. Made in Holland, these charcoal discs burns quickly and evenly to provide great incense burning experience.
As always, we suggest our customers to light the charcoal and wait a couple of minutes until gray ash forms on the top of charcoal tablet. This grey ash works as a cushion between red hot charcoal and incense - putting your incense of grey ash means your incense will burn slowly to emit the fragrance at its best.
Each roll contains 10 charcoal tablets.
You need a burner or a heat-proof dish to use charcoal. Special burners are available which are constructed so that the smoldering charcoal is held up off the surface on which the holder is placed. You can also use a heatproof bowl with gravel or pebbles but special care should be taken as the charcoal can heat the bowl making it unsafe to touch.
Light the charcoal by holding it over a flame (this could be gas stove top, candle, lighter or blowtorch) using a pair of tongs or pliers, then place it in the burner.
When the grey ash forms on the surface of charcoal disc, then place incense on top of it.
If using resin place small pieces on top. Large pieces may carbonize before the essential oil has been fully released, resulting in a bitter smell. Once a piece of resin has fully burnt, knock it off with your tongs and replace it with a fresh piece. Each disc should burn for at least 30 minutes and can often be made to burn longer by knocking off the coating of ash as it builds up.
Never hold the charcoal in your fingers. Do not check if it is extinguished by touching it. You can ensure the charcoal is extinguished by pouring some water on it.
Indeed this brings me back to my holiday in Havana! Takes me back to those warm nights celebrating with mojitos and cigars (yes I smoked them there!). Definitely a uniue fragrance, very exotic, with a distinct personality. Perfect as a unisex perfume.
