Burning incense can help you enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy and promote calmness. It could be part of your winddown routine after work, or a fun way to start your morning each day. However, there are ways to burn incense without risking your health.


In this article, we take a look at how to burn incense safely and how to store them properly to protect your home.

How to Burn Incense Cones

Incense cones are made from herbs and spices which are filled into a cone. The cone is made of paper and has some holes. It is one of the easiest and safest ways to burn incense.


With a lighter or match, light the cone's tip, and let it burn for five to ten seconds. Then extinguish the flame, leaving the ember to smoulder. Let the cone burn all the way to the base. Cones of incense will burn for about 30 minutes, however, they may emit more smoke than other incense types.

Safety Tips

  • Always keep an eye on the incense cone to avoid any mishap. There is no need to panic when you have an incense cone in your hand. The safety tips are very simple.
  • Never place the incense cone on the ground or it may get burnt.
  • Use an open fire to burn the incense.
  • Burn the incense in a clean and well-ventilated area.
  • Use only pure and clean materials to burn the incense. 

How to Store Incense Cones

Here are the tips for storing incense cones:

Store them in a cool and dry place

In order to store them in a cool and dry place, you need to use a small box or a metal container. The metal containers are much better because they are rust-free.


Make sure that they are kept in a dark room as light exposure may affect the fragrance. If you keep them in a dark and cool place, then it is highly unlikely that the scent will deteriorate.

Clean them regularly

When you keep incense cones in a place that is warm and humid, they will absorb humidity and become moldy.


To clean them, you need to put them in a paper bag and keep them in the freezer for 30 minutes.


After 30 minutes, remove them and place them on a dry and clean surface. After that, blow them with the air to remove the moisture.

Keep them away from direct sunlight

The direct sunlight will dry up the incense cones and will make them hard to use.


If you are planning to travel with incense cones then keep them away from direct sunlight.
