Burning resins is a practice that dates back to antiquity, and yet it still requires safety and focused attention. Unless you are using an electric burner, fire is required when burning resins. For those using charcoal or tea candles, please be mindful where you place your burner while the charcoal or candle are ignited. I recommend placing your burner on a fire retardant surface such as metal, glass, or stone. Another option is to sit your burner on a ceramic plate. Never leave your charcoal unattended while it is burning. Be safe, mindful, and attentive when fragrancing your space with these incredibly beautiful essences.
