What You'll Need
Before you begin, gather the essential items:
Bakhoor: Select the Bakhoor blend of your choice. There are various types, each with its unique fragrance profile.
Incense Burner: You'll need an incense burner or an electric incense holder. Traditional incense burners often have a place for placing hot coal.
Charcoal Disc: If you're using a traditional incense burner, you'll need a charcoal disc to burn the Bakhoor.
Lighter or Matches: You'll require a lighter or matches to ignite the charcoal disc.
Small Tongs: To handle the hot charcoal safely.
A Fireproof Surface: Ensure you place the incense burner on a non-flammable, heat-resistant surface.
Step 1: Prepare Your Space
Choose a well-ventilated room or area for burning Bakhoor. Open windows or doors to allow for proper airflow. This ensures that the fragrance can circulate and doesn't become overwhelming.
Step 2: Set Up the Incense Burner
If you're using a traditional incense burner:
Place the charcoal disc on the incense burner.
Ignite the charcoal disc with a lighter or match. You'll know it's ready when it starts to ash over.
Step 3: Add the Bakhoor
Once the charcoal disc is glowing and ashed over, use the small tongs to place a small piece of Bakhoor on top of the charcoal. The Bakhoor will start to smolder, releasing its fragrance.
Step 4: Enjoy the Aroma
Allow the Bakhoor to smolder and fill the room with its delightful aroma. You can control the intensity of the fragrance by adding more or less Bakhoor as needed.
Step 5: Safety Precautions
Never leave burning Bakhoor unattended.
Keep the incense burner away from flammable materials.
Use caution when handling hot charcoal or incense burners.
Step 6: Extinguish and Store
When you're done enjoying the fragrance, extinguish the charcoal carefully by placing it in a fireproof container. You can reuse the charcoal for future Bakhoor sessions.
