If you don't have any charcoal on hand, or if you're looking for a simpler way to burn resin incense, you can use a metal spoon and a candle. Just place the resin on the spoon and hold it over the flame of the candle. The heat from the candle will cause the resin to melt and release its fragrance. Remember, fix the spoon to a stand or bend the spoon and tie it to a jar.
This method is quick and easy, and it's a great way to enjoy the benefits of resin incense without having to deal with charcoal. Plus, it's less messy than using charcoal, so you won't have to worry about making a mess when you're finished.
Just be sure to use a metal spoon that can withstand the heat of the candle flame. And be careful not to burn yourself!

You can use old canned goods and candles to burn resin incense. All you need is a glass candle holder or any candle holder, an empty tea-light candle tin or old canned goods, and some toothpicks.
Simply pierce four toothpicks through the tin in a cross shape, leaving some extra picks on the outside of the tin. You can also replace the toothpick with a wire to make it more durable and can be used the next time. Place your candle in its holder, then place the pierced empty tin over the hole of the candle holder. Add a choice of resin incense and some water or oil if needed inside the tin. Light your candle and enjoy your homemade incense!
Burning resin incense is a great way to enjoy the scent of your favorite resins without having to deal with the mess of burning them directly. And, using aluminum foil and a strainer makes it easy to get a clean burn without any residue.
Here's what you'll need:
To start, cut a piece of aluminum foil that's large enough to fit over the top of your strainer. You'll want to make sure that the foil is big enough so that there are no gaps where the smoke can escape.
Next, place your resin on the foil and then fold the edges of the foil up so that it forms a little bowl. Be sure to leave a small opening in the center of the bowl for the smoke to escape.
Now, hold the bowl of foil above the filter and light your candle. You can also add a little water or cooking oil to the foil bowl to slow down the burning rate of the resin incense if desired.
The resin will start smoking and filling the air with its scent. Inhale deeply and enjoy!
When you're done, allow the resin to burn out completely, and then dispose of the foil. That's it! You've now learned how to burn resin incense using aluminum foil and a strainer. Enjoy!
