A Charcoal roll contains 10 individual tablets, with the tablet diameter 33mm for Swift-Lite.
The charcoal tablet provides a heat source on which to smoulder your herbs and resins for a dramatic and atmospheric incense experience.
How do you use the charcoal tablets?
Remove a tablet from the sealed roll and, holding with tongs, light the edge of the tablet with a lighter, match or candle. The tablet will then light across its surface. There may be some sparks, this is normal and is required to completely ignite the charcoal.
Place the lit tablet in a censer or heatproof dish. Lightly sprinkle resins and/or herbs onto the tablet. Do not smother the tablet.
As the resin smoulders, there will be a lot of smoke. This is normal and part of the purpose of using this method. Ensure adequate ventilation or use outside.
Use tongs to scrape away the ash and add more resins/herbs. Tablet will continue to burn for about 40 minutes.
The tablet should be left to burn out and cool in the censer.
If the tablet is to be extinguished before it is fully cooled then it should be placed in a container of water.
When the tablet has been lit, do not handle it with bare hands as it will cause burns.
Do not dispose of the ash remains in a bin as this may cause a fire.
Do not hold the tablet in your hand when lighting or when burning.
Keep out of reach of children.
Use stainless steel tongs to safely handle hot charcoal.
Always use on a heatproof surface. Keep away from flammable materials.

Dhupaya incense is traditional to the indigenous people of the Newari Community in Nepal, who burn rope style incense daily during meditation practice and as offerings to the Gods, popular in both Hindu and Buddhist traditions. It is made by turning many different aromatic herbs foraged from the Himalayas into finely powdered form and then wrapping them in very thin strips of Lokta paper (an ancient form of Nepalese artisan-made paper) and gently twisting it into what appears to be a rope-like incense.
The smoke that is created from the Vajra Sandalwood Incense is believed to attract the Gods and is burned during meditation practice to hold the mind on the object of its attention.
Light a stick from the thicker end to burn. They are best to be burned laying down in metal or stone bowls lined with sand, but the provided burner is suitable as long as the person burning remains present or places the burner on a larger fire-proof vessel.
In a country that is the abode of many Gods, often we emark on a journey to their doorsteps. We travel across lands, our hearts filled with faith and souls brimming with devotion. We endure difficult Yatras to catch one beautiful glimpse of the almighty. To bow before Him and seek his blessings.
