Incense charcoal
« on: June 16, 2012, 06:46:21 PM »
Hey, I'm going camping soon with my cousins, and I'm bringing Athonite incense along to light, and am just wondering if one can use ordinary charcoal, or if i have to use specific incense charcoal? Also, what would be a good scent to choose from, I'm thinking  'Jerusalem' or 'Byzantine'? Mnogay Leta!

Just a disk of charcoal or something along those lines is my general understanding. As far as I know, there is no special incense charcoal required. As for a good scent, anything you can get in a church bookstore is usually good ;)

I use Japanese bamboo charcoal because it doesn't have any carcinogenic additives.

Has anyone had any experience with "Jerusalem" or "Svir", they should be coming in shortly and I'm curious what y'all thought.
