SOEX Quick-Lite Charcoal Tablets are quality charcoal disks sealed in foil rolls for freshness, suitable for use with all incense. Ten 33mm diameter tablets per roll (each burn for up to an hour). SOEX Charcoal is made in India.
SAFETY TIP! Keep away from children as these are very hot. If using in a metal resin burner make sure the base is on a HEAT PROOF surface.
Each pack of charcoal comes to you sealed in airtight foil. Once opened the natural dryness of the discs will cause them to absorb moisture from the atmosphere. To avoid moisture causing any difficulty lighting the discs at a later date please remember to store the opened packet in an airtight container, or at least wrap the remaining discs in aluminium foil. Charcoal discs burn at an extremely high temperature so it is very important to use a suitable heat-proof surface or purpose made incense burner. Lighting a charcoal disc is very straight forward. Take a disc by the thumb and forefinger holding the depression side up. With a flame from a match, lighter or candle apply to the opposite end being held. Once the charcoal begins to heat it will start to sparkle. Take care to notice that the sparks extinguish as prudent fire precaution. Once alight place the charcoal on the incense burner and allow to completely ignite. This is when the line of sparks moves across the face of the disc and reaches the opposite side and subsides. Whilst this takes place smoke will rise which should not be inhaled. Charcoal discs are bevelled at the base to allow air to be drawn through the block so to provide a ready source of oxygen. Placing gravel or sand in the base of your burner improves the burning efficiency. You are now ready to burn the incense of your choice. Add a little at a time, taking care not to smother the charcoal disc and replenish as necessary
