Charcoal discs are used to burn resins and smudging herbs/woods. Because of their high heat they can melt resins, producing a wonderful aromatic smoke. Three Kings is one of the most well-known brands of charcoal discs, and one pack includes 10 discs. (Charcoal Burner sold separately)
In a high heat resistant dish place the charcoal disc with the indented side facing up.
NOTE: Do NOT use an abalone shell or glass dish as the high heat from the disc will crack your bowl.
When you light the disc it will sparkle and sizzle. To ensure the disc is fully lit, wait until the sparkling and noise stops before adding your resins or smudge blends. You should wait for the disc to fully cool before disposing of the ashes. It can take up to 3 hours for it to fully cool.
