Cedar Incense


Cedar Incense


Made from Eastern Red Cedar trees which are sacred to many Native American tribes.  This incense is useful for offerings, blessings, and purification.*  Made with no additives and no fillers, this is a pure 2oz bag of Eastern Red Cedar.

Use: Pour a small pile onto a flame proof surface such as a stone, seashell or plate.  Using fingers, pinch the top of the pile to form a cone.  Light with a grill or cigarette lighter (matches will burn you) for 10-15 seconds until flame catches and a coal is formed.  The Incense will burn until the pile is flat or 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the pile.

A single 2oz bag will burn for AT LEAST two hours.

Troubleshooting: If the Cedar will not light then it is always one of three problems: Moisture, Cone, or Lighting Method.

1. Moisture
- If there is too much moisture in the powder it will not catch and hold a coal.  To dry, pour your Eastern Red Cedar Incense into a small paper bag and allow to dry in a sunny window sill for the day.  When finished, return to a dry, airtight container.

2. Cone
- If you do not form a pointed cone using your finger tips, the Eastern Red Cedar Incense will not burn properly or for a long enough period of time.  Simply pouring into into a pile (as pictured in the product image) is not good enough and will not catch and hold flame.

3. Lighting Method
- The best way to light Eastern Red Cedar Incense is by using a common grill lighter, this will protect for finger tips and create the hottest flame.
- The next best method is to use a cigarette lighter such as a Bic.
- While it is possible on occasion to light the Eastern Red Cedar Incense with a match, it is quite difficult and the risk of burning yourself is quite high.
