Incense / Charcoal
Though the scents may have changed slightly throughout the years, the methods used for burning incense in churches has not. Charcoal is the preferred fuel of choice, offering a long-lasting burn at just the right temperature to heat and disperse your scent of choice throughout the worship space. Our charcoal offerings are designed to be easy to light and quick to heat, burning thoroughly and offering an excellent value. To use charcoal to burn incense, simply light the charcoal as directed and place the incense directly upon it to allow for a slow burn and maximum scent distribution. Our most popular brands of charcoals for liturgical use are Char-Lite, Self-Lite, Instant Swift-Lite and Top Quality Self Igniting Charcoal.
