Backflow Incense Cone Burner - MOUNTAIN BRIDGE (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.
WHAT IS BACKFLOW INCENSE?
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 resin MOUNTAIN BRIDGE backflow burner is a beautiful, elaborate design of a rocky mountain village, with a rustic round footbridge over a flowing stream.
Your backflow cone sits on a stable metal plate (some have a flat platform instead of the metal plate) near the top and rear of the burner, allowing the smoke from the cone to travel downwards over the mountain like a waterfall and into a 'stream' that runs beneath the bridge to spill into the lake below.
A very serene and peaceful setting perfectly suited to meditation, yoga or general relaxation.
DIMENSIONS: Approx 9.75cm in height, and 11.5cm at the widest. Made from glazed resin, brown with green highlights.
IMPORTANT: Most backflow burners are fairly small so do check the size carefully before purchasing.

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 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 top level of the 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.
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, and always keep lit incense out of reach of children or pets. Never leave lit incense unattended.
