A beautiful metal lotus holder, that is ideal for burning incense cones but can also be used for charcoal and resins (please see the images above for sizing). This comes as two parts, the lid is detachable and has lovely intricate designs around the outside.
You can also try using a small amount of sand, ash or a dry grain such as rice at the bottom of the burner to help improve the air flow, especially with a cone. This can also help it to burn and protect the burner from the heat.
Size of Burner The diameter at the widest point is approximately 7cm (2.8") and total height of the burner is roughly 7.5cm (3").
Using a Cone in the Burner: Fit the cone into incense holder, light the top of the coated end until it glows. Once the tip is glowing, carefully blow out the flame.
Safety Notes: Before use, place on a heat resistant surface as the bottom will become very hot if used for charcoal. Never leave burning incense unattended, burn out of the reach of children and pets, remove all packaging before use. Take care when moving or touching an incense holder and burn in a ventilated area.

More About the Symbol of the Lotus Flower
The lotus flower is held sacred in many traditions as a symbol of rebirth, growing up from the mud towards the light where it opens up and blossoms. Each morning the flower opens. At night it sinks underwater again.
The lotus flower is central to one of the Egyptian creation stories where the lotus flower gave birth to the sun. A lotus flower emerged from the great darkness. From within the lotus flower came the divine child Re, the sun. The petals opened and Re cast his brilliant light.
Thus it can be seen that wearing or having near you a symbol of the lotus flower is a symbol of rebirth and faith in the beauty and perfection of creation. The symbol can be used during times when you wish to encourage new life and miraculous new growth in your life.
