Here's everything you need to start burning natural incense trails.
Incense Trails date back to the ancient Chinese, who used this method of incense burning to measure time. Many Buddhist temples worldwide still use this style of incense burning for their "Sonae koh" incense ceremonies. Incense trail burning is very easy to do and provides a simple economical method for enjoying the burning of natural incense ingredients.
An imprint is made in a bowl of ash using a koh press. The impression is then filled with makko powder. One end of the makko trail is then lit using a small incense stick or match. As the makko trail burns incense mixtures are sprinkled on top and release their aroma.
An alternative method of using this style is to combine a loose incense mixture with makko powder
and then fill the ash depression with this combined fragrant mixture.
