These charcoal tablets or briquettes come in a pack of 10 sealed in a foil wrapper, each tablet is approximately 33 mm in diameter. The charcoal is coated with a special material which means that it can be lit with a lighter or possibly a match. The coating sparks across the charcoal surface and then should be left for a few minutes until it has started to heat through. These excelsior tablets are fast lighting, smoke-free, odorless and long burning and therefore do not interfere with the scent of the incense.
The charcoal does get very hot and can glow red so great care should be taken. The disc should be placed inside a heat resistant container with earth, ash or sand inside (if required) to shield the strong heat. Once alight the resin or sang can be spooned gently onto the charcoal to release the aroma of the incense. You can then add more resin or sang as required.
Ingredients: The charcoal used is sourced from fruit trees, mainly the apple tree. This has been found to make the finest quality of charcoal.
Environmental Information: This charcoal is made from the timber cut from fruit trees, and as such this ensures that no tree is cut down. All timber used in production are discarded cuttings collected from selected sustainable apple orchards. This process guarantees the sustainable supply of timber without any loss of forest area.
