This resin is brought in from Indonesia and is available in approx. 30 gram/1oz sizes in natural chunks down to fine grains.
To use resins make sure that you have a fireproof dish or charcoal burner part filled with sand, light your charcoal disc/biscuit until white around the edge and place into your burner/plate using tongs (as the charcoal will be excessively hot).
Place a small amount of resin onto the charcoal and the fragrant smoke willdriftinto your home. If you wish to continue wanting the fragrance to continue just place another small amount after the first has finished, always keep an eye on the burner and never leave unattended or in reach of children or animals.
