Some of you may not know what I'm talking about here, so let me explain.
You've probably seen incense cones and sticks but it also comes in a powder form that you sprinkle on top of a special self lighting charcoal briquette. But I ran out of the charcoal briquettes and wondered if there was a way to still burn my powder incense, so through trial and error *and a lot of smoke* I found that you can indeed burn powder incense without charcoal. That is what the powder incense looks like in the canister.
I buy Anna Rivas Powder incense because I like the way it smells. I also have a small brass cauldron that I usually burn the charcoal briquettes or cones in but this time I just placed a small piece of aluminum foil on top to hold the incense while it burned.
I was able to light it and it burned.
This is what it looked like.
