Firstly I do know how to burn Incense by putting it on a charcoal etc, but I want to know when to burn? for example do I say a prayer first then burn it and say another one?
Also is there a prayer anyone can recommend while blessing my house with Incense?
What hecma said. I like the Somalian Frankincense from orthodoxincense.com, I believe it smells better than the Ethiopian stuff.
Regarding time to burn charcoal, I usually quarter the waffers, that way the quarter of one piece will only take about 15 minutes to burn and only about 2 minutes to fire up completely. It lasts enough time for everyone (I have a relatively big family) to say their part of the evening prayers, personal devotions, and prayers to Christ, the Theotokos, and our guardian angels. 10 minutes, tops. Except if the kids want to chant their prayers.
I like Nag Champa
I just got a contact high from my own memories of a bygone era. LOL! Thanks for the that!
