To burn the resin use a charcoal disc. Light the charcoal disc and place on a fire-proof dish, when it finishes smoking and sparking it should simply glow. Place 1 to 3 small pieces of resin on the charcoal and it will start to burn immediately. The resulting incense is pleasant and sweet and can be used to clear and purify the air.
