How To Use Charcoal
Remove tablet from sealed roll and place charcoal, the round side down in abalone shell, censer, or other "fire proof" dish. Light the edge of the tablet with a match or taper. Hold the match to the edge of the charcoal until it begins to sparkle. The sparkling will continue across the charcoal, otherwise use additional matches till it does. You may fan the tablet a little to get it good and hot.
Once you have your charcoal tablet lit, just spoon or drop a 1/4
teaspoon or so of resin, onto the hot tablet. The resin will begin to
melt and smolder.
This should last for about 5-10 minutes, depending on how much
resin you used. Be careful not to put too much resin on the tablet,
or you may smother the charcoal tablet, and will need to begin
If the ashes start to give off an unpleasant odor, take a metal spoon or knife and scrape off any residue before adding more material. Tweezers work well for moving the tablet around INSIDE the censer.
The tablet should be left to burn out and cool in the censer. To extinguish a tablet before it has fully cooled quench in a container of cold water.
PLEASE NOTE-When the tablet is lit, do not handle it as it WILL cause a burn. Charcoal can burn at up to 815 degrees C. and may burn up to an hour before burning out. Do not dispose of the ash remains in a waste paper bin as this may cause a fire. Do not hold the tablet in your hand when lighting or burning. This product ignites instantly.
