For centuries, incense sticks have been an integral part of Indian culture and spirituality. The aroma of incense has been used to enhance the ambiance of religious ceremonies and daily routines alike. In fact, incense sticks are still widely used in modern India, despite the advent of air fresheners and scented candles.

However, the increased popularity of incense sticks has also brought attention to their potential hazards. When used incorrectly, they can pose a significant risk to health and safety. It is crucial to understand the Do’s and Don’ts of using incense sticks to ensure their safe use:

  • Choose a safe location: Start by choosing a safe location where you can light your incense sticks. Make sure it is a stable surface that is not flammable and away from any objects that could catch fire.
  • Hold the stick: Hold the incense stick at the uncoated end and light the coated end with a lighter or match. Hold the flame to the end of the incense stick for a few seconds until the tip begins to glow.
  • Extinguish the flame: After the tip of the incense stick begins to glow, carefully blow out the flame. Make sure the flame is completely extinguished before leaving the incense stick unattended.
  • Place in a holder: Place the lit incense stick in a holder that is designed to hold incense sticks. Ensure the holder is stable and secure, and the ash can fall onto a non-flammable surface.

Safety Procedures:

  • Never leave burning incense unattended: Always make sure that your incense sticks are in a safe location, away from flammable objects, and that you are present while they are burning.
  • Keep away from children and pets: Make sure that your incense sticks are out of reach of children and pets, who may accidentally knock them over or ingest the ash.
  • Use in a well-ventilated area: Burning incense can create smoke and fumes, which can be irritating to some people. Make sure to burn incense in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling too much smoke.
