Resin incense is the raw materials that incense sticks are made of. Resins are sticky plant materials that are gathered from the plant and dried. Resins are normally burnt on charcoals made especially for incense. At Violet and Company, our favorite charcoal for burning resins is Japanese charcoal by Nippon Kodo. We cut each large piece of charcoal into four smaller pieces and burn the resin material that way. Other charcoals have their own merits, such as 3 Kings Charcoal-famous the world over for its purity and power. However you burn your resin, we carry what you need to do so.
