We're pleased to bring to the Natroma website, some of the back flow incense cones which are popular in our Stourbridge shop.
If you haven't seen a backflow incense burner in action, we'd advise you to have a look on YouTube. Backflow Incense Burners are mesmerising!
They are a special type of incense burner that have a hole at the top. You need to use a special type of incense cone that contains fragrance and oil (it makes the smoke heavy). The cones have a hole inside them, and the incense smoke flows down through the cone, instead of wafting into the air. Once the tip of the cone is alight it is placed on top of the backflow incense burner, the smoke cascades down the burner and looks like a waterfall. It's hypnotic and so relaxing to watch the smoke cascading down the ceramic burner! Many of our customers find it really helps them to light a backflow cone, and then meditate as they watch the smoke patterns. They tell us that it really helps them to relax at the end of the day.
In the early days of backflow incense burners, the cones weren't so good. They tended to be low quality and often smelt quite burnt, rather than fragrant. Thankfully some of our favourite incense manufacturers have now produced their own backflow cones, and they are of a much higher quality. Backflow incense cones tend to last for 20 minutes. To use, simply place the cone on an incense holder and light the tip, wait for it to glow and then blow out the flame.
