Opopanax has a rich, spicey, fruity, earthy smell which brings the attention of the user in touch with the body. King Solomon regarded Opoponax as one of the “noblest” of all incense gums. In olden times it was one of the gum resins thought to be applicable to almost all ills, hence the name Opopanax, meaning the “All-healing juice”.

How to Burn Resins:
Light the charcoal with matches or lighter for about 20 seconds until it self-ignites. Once lit, Incense charcoal is self-burning; the means of combustion is included in the disk.
Use tongs to hold it up (never hold it with your fingers alone or you might get burned). Place the lit charcoal in a bowl or any incense burner. The bowl or incense burner should be filled with sand or dirt. Let the charcoal warm for a few minutes. (It turns gray around the edges when it is ready) Now you are ready! Add a small amount of resin on top of the charcoal. The resin will burn and soon release essential, aromatic oils through the smoke. Continue to place resins or powder on charcoal as they burn out and smoke decreases for a continuous burn.
