Properly lighting and placing an incense backflow cone

Incense backflow cones come in a variety of scents that help you relax and find your spiritual center. There are a couple steps we recommend so you get the most out of your incense cones. 

This guide will cover the following:

  • Lighting your backflow cones
  • Placing and timing


Light Tip
The first thing you need to do is locate the tip of the incense cone and light it.

 Lighting Backflow Cone Instructions


Light Till Glowing Hot

After lighting the cone, wait about 5 - 8 seconds for the tip to get glowing hot. Its important not to over-light the incense cone and just let it get glowing hot at the tip.

Blow or Fan Out Flame

Then gently blow out the flame or fan the flame until it disappears. The fragrance will then slowly begin to release from a hole at the bottom of the incense cone.
