CLEARANCE: Backflow Incense Cones - WHITE SAGE & PALO SANTO, Native Soul Pk of 8 Jumbo
PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE SPECIAL 'BACKFLOW' INCENSE CONES - See below.
See additional photos for more Backflow Cones in this range.
WHAT ARE BACKFLOW CONES?
Backflow incense cones differ from standard cones as they are semi-hollow with an open hole at the base, and are designed to be used with special burners 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 Backflow Cones MAY burn in a normal incense cone burner, you will not see any cascade effect unless you burn them over a specialised BACKFLOW BURNER.

WHITE SAGE & PALO SANTO
For hundreds of years, White Sage (Salvia apiana) has been considered a sacred, purifying plant. Native Americans started the tradition of burning its dry bundled leaves during their purification ceremonies and healing sessions, to cleanse a space or a person of evil spirits or negative energies.
Palo Santo (Bursera graveolens), which means "Holy Wood" in Spanish, is a mystical tree that grows in the Amazon rainforests. Its wood, leaves and oil have been used for thousands of years by indigenous Shamans to heal the body and soul, purify spaces, clear negative energies and prepare for meditation.
The combination of the earthy aroma of White Sage with the soothing balsamic scent of Palo Santo provides the perfect environment for meditation.
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.
