Box of 8 incense sticks. Each stick is made of a mixture of paper fibres, incense and charcoal. Each box comes with a burning pad for safe burning. Approximately 10 minutes of burning time. Scent lingers for about 30 minutes or more.

How to Use: Do not strike as if you're lighting a regular match, as the incense matches are delicate. Hold the match close to the tip and without burning yourself strike in a straight line and wait for the flame to reach the incense stick. Once it does, blow out the flame and place it on your mat. Keep the mat inside the box, which has a heat-resistant liner.

If you strike the match too hard and it breaks or snaps in half, we recommend you to light it with a lighter (if you're able without burning yourself), let it burn and reach the incense stick and place on the mat. Take the other "half" and push it together. The second half should be able to light. This is not common and only will occur if you strike the match too hard. Most users don't have this issue.
