Fireflies are gentle and peaceful critters that light up the summer night with their bioelectricity. Everything about them is mystical and magical. Along with the meteorite shower, they are a summer night spectacle that one looks all year for its return.
Fireflies incense cones are hand-rolled in the traditional technique, made from finely ground Australian botanicals: Red resin from the Firetree (Xanthorrehea), a tree that actually thrives on fire to rejuvenate and renew its growth, eucalyptus leaves, Australian sandalwood and spices. Like all of our incense, the aromatics are bound together with natural gums or wood bark, and are free of saltpetre or any synthetic fillers.
Incense cones, hand-rolled in the traditional Asian style, made from botanicals that were finely ground on location and artfully blended. No saltpetre or charcoal used in these cones. Cones are generally faster burning than a thick joss stick (range of burning time may be from 7-15min, and produce more smoke. They are more convenient to burn while traveling and outdoors, and they stand on their own base, and therefore don't really require special equipment or vessels.
Burning instruction: Prepare a heat-proof vessel, on a sturdy surface away from flammables and out of reach of children and animals. To prevent scorch marks, it is recommended that you layer some sand, earth or ash on the vessel. Place the cone and light the tip of it, and allow the flame to extinguish. Because these are handmade cones, each has a different burning times.
Each box contains approximately a dozen cones.
