These environmental friendly tablets are not made out chared wood but out of hand pressed natural herbs and wood with no chemicals added.
They glow slowly and evenly and produce a nice herbal scented plume of smoke.
They hollow shape makes its easy for incense to pile on top.
Because they are so pure and natural, they make great tablets for ritual incense burning.
1 tablet glows for about 30-45 minutes.
Break a tablet off and light a corner (as no exellerants are used, it takes a bit longer).
Place the glowing tablet in a non-flammable holder and add the desired amount of incense powder, resins or herbs.
