Backflow Incense Cone Burner - STONE STACK (Medium)
Incense Not Included - any cones or sticks pictured are to give an indication of the size of the burner. Backflow Cones are available separately - CLICK HERE.
Backflow incense cones differ from standard cones as they are semi-hollow, and designed to be used with special burners like these which have a hole or design that pulls the smoke downward and allows it to fall in a flow, creating a stunning visual effect as it cascades over or through the burner.
NOTE: While you can use a backflow burner with standard cones like any other incense holder, unless you use specialised Backflow Cones, you will not see any cascade effect.
Our STONE STACK Design backflow burner captures the simple design of a stack of stones balanced on top of each other. Made from a textured resin material, your backflow cone sits on the platform on the smallest stone at the top, with the smoke flowing downwards and reappearing a stone down, and into / over the hollowed 'pool' at the base of the stack.
DIMENSIONS: Approx 12cm in height, and 7 - 7.5cm at the widest.
IMPORTANT: Most backflow burners are fairly small so do check the size carefully before purchasing.
See any additional photos to get a sense of the size of a cone alongside the burner.
HOW TO USE BACKFLOW INCENSE
Light the incense as you'd light any incense cone: hold a flame to the tip until it catches, then blow out the flame and place the cone safely onto the BACKFLOW burner. Backflow cones have a hole in the base that goes almost to the top of the cone; place the lit cone so that the hole aligns with the hole on the backflow burner.
The cone will burn normally (with smoke moving upwards) until it begins to burn the hollow section, and will then begin to draw the smoke through the hole in the base of the cone (some smoke will continue to go upwards - this is normal). Each burner has a different 'path' that the smoke is designed to flow through as it continues to burn. Avoid breezes or draughts, as this will effect the cascading effect.
NOTE: Ensure your burner is on a heat-proof surface as, depending on the design, some hot ash may fall onto the surface below. Dispose of ash once it has completely cooled - wipe away any residue left from the burnt ash. Always keep lit incense out of reach of children or pets, and never leave lit incense unattended.
