Golden Temple Charcoal Tablets - Big Box of 10 Rolls (100 Individual Tablets)
Tablets are packed in rolls of 10, and are sealed in airtight packaging in order to maintain efficient combustion. These are available in size 3.3 or 4cm tableets.
The charcoal is coated with a special material which means that it can be lit with a lighter or possibly a match. The coating sparks across the charcoal surface and then should be left for a few minutes until it has started to heat through. These tablets are fast lighting, smoke-free, odorless, tasteless and long burning and means they shouldn't interfere with the scent of the incense.
The charcoal does get very hot and can glow red so great care should be taken. The disc should be placed inside a heat resistant container with earth inside (if required) to shield the strong heat. Once alight the resin can be spooned gently onto the charcoal and the resin becomes an incense and the delightful aromas are released. You can then add more resin as required.
Size: Available in 3.3cm, or 4cm (per tablet)
How to Use
Remove tablet from sealed roll and place charcoal, the round side down in abalone shell, censer, or other "fire proof" dish. Light the edge of the tablet with a match or taper. Hold the match to the edge of the charcoal until it begins to sparkle. The sparkling will continue across the charcoal, otherwise use additional matches till it does. You may fan the tablet a little to get it good and hot. Once the tablet is lit, you may take a small amount (1/4 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon) of burning herbs or resins and pour onto the lit cake of charcoal. The incense will burn/melt and smoke releasing its scent into the air. These will burn for several minutes and then you may add more. If the ashes start to give off an unpleasant odour, take a metal spoon or knife and scrape off any residue before adding more material. Tweezers work well for moving the tablet around INSIDE the censer. The tablet should be left to burn out and cool in the censer. To extinguish a tablet before it has fully cooled quench in a container of cold water.
Safety Note - Do Not handle charcoal when the tablet is lit. Do not dispose the ash remains in a waste paper bin, as this may cause a fire. Always make sure the tablet is extinguished before disposing of it. Never leave unattended. Do not place container on a flammable surface.
