Incense cones are generally made from a paste (usually charcoal dust or sawdust with an adhesive made from the bark of litsea glutinosa and other trees), and the perfume ingredients. These are traditionally a masala (a powder of ground ingredients), or a solvent of perfumes and/or essential oils. Small quantities of water are combined with the mixture which is kneaded into a hard dough, which is then pressed into the cone shape.
Incense cones are burned by lighting the tip and waiting for it to glow. Then the flame is blown out and the cone is placed on an incense holder.
None of the incense cones in this section are suitable for using with a backflow burner.
