How to Use Fancy Bakhoor Dan:
Bakhoor or Bukhoor (incense) is not a self-lit substance as Incense sticks. So you will need to use an electrical Incense burner to fast start and safely burn Bakhoor. These burners must get too hot for the Bakhoor to burn properly.
Some people (like me) find it better to use charcoal to better burn the Bakhoor slowly emitting the smoke of fragrance. In this method, burn a charcoal disc till it glows on a pottery (Mabkhara), special metal or ceramic incense burner or maybe on a pot or safe anti-burn container/plate. We use either a traditional incense burner (shown here under – first-lift) or a modern charcoal (non electrical / manual) incense burners (here-under). There is also some manufactured fast-ignite charcoals that can be bought from market or from my (new) Store .
Put a small piece(s) of Bakhoor on the lit glowing charcoal or on the hot plate of the electric incense burner.
Let the smoke of fragrance fill the air of the place but not too much since this can take much oxygen from the room. The fragrance stays there after the smoke goes away. Don’t open the windows till the room is saturated with the fragrance carried by the smoke of Bakhoor.
To perfume the clothes with Bakhoor, just expose the cloth directrly to the smoke of Bakhoor for 3 minites.
Please be careful not to make fire when using charcoal and incense burners at home also it is safe not to burn Bakhoor while there is somebody sleeping in place since this can take some oxygen from the room (open windows after the room is saturated with the fragrance smoke). Please keep charcoals and burners out of reach of children and don’t forget to unplug the electric burners right after use.
