How Long Does Incense Last?

Incense sticks and cones


The longevity of incense is a common question among those who are interested in the topic. Some people would like to know how long incense lasts, while others want to know how they can make it last longer. 


In this article, we will discuss both these questions and provide some tips on how to increase your incense's lifespan and enjoy its benefits more often!

The Use of a Burner

While you can use an incense burner to burn the incense, it's generally not necessary. 


Incense burners are used to prevent the ashes from falling on the floor, keep them contained and away from your body (which may irritate or harm you), and help keep the smoke away from your face when you're using it in a room with lots of windows.

How to Store Incense

Proper storage is necessary to prolong the life of your incense. Below are some storage tips to extend its scent:


  • Keep incense in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight and heat sources.
  • Don't leave it open to the air, as this will cause moisture to evaporate from the material over time, making it dry up faster.
  • Don't store your incense near any heat source (such as a fireplace or candle), as this can cause excessive heating that could damage the material over time.

Does Incense Expire?

The longevity of backflow cones is usually around 8-10 hours but other factors should be considered too.


Backflow cones are designed to burn for a long time, but they don't last forever. As with many things in life, the longer you use it and the more often you burn it, the less effective it becomes over time. 


The quality of your incense will affect its longevity as well as how you burn it. If you're using cheap or poor-quality incense that isn't made from natural ingredients then this can cause problems with your health. Incense Waterfalls’ backflow cones are made with natural ingredients, free of any harmful chemicals.

How to Make Incense Last Longer

Incense can last for up to 2 to 6 hours. If you want to make your incense last longer, there are a few things you can do:


  • Use an incense burner that's well-made and has good heat distribution. If the burner isn't centered on your table or countertop, it will burn unevenly and waste some of the incense before it even gets lit.
  • Use proper incense holders—it’s important that these are made from safe materials (not glass) because they will not only protect your incense from breaking but also keep its scent intact for longer periods of time! 
  • You should also store them in cool places such as an airtight container with desiccant packs inside; this helps absorb moisture from dampening humidity levels so that any remaining moisture doesn't cause mold growth inside bottles/boxes over time.

  • Try out some different blends: You might find one that works better than others (or even create your own recipe).
