Backflow Incense Burner

Backflow incense is created by using incense cones in an incense burner. They get the name backflow because the smoke is pushed down instead of rising up like regular smoke.

If you are used to burning incense you will be pleasantly surprised by how similar a backflow incense burner is.

Using the backflow incense cones is very similar to burning incense sticks as they both produce incense smoke that smells amazing, they just do it slightly differently.

Regular incense is great to use every now and then if you aren’t looking for something that looks fancy and just want a great fragrance spread throughout the room.

If you’d like something that creates a beautiful visual effect while also looking great as an ornament then the backflow incense burners are a great choice.

You can get them in all sorts of different designs such as dragonsmountainswaterfallslakes and ponds, plus many more.


Firstly you’ll want to make sure you have all the correct equipment to get started which is:

  1. A basic lighter however I prefer to use an electric candle lighter,
  2. Backflow incense cones which you can make yourself if you are creatively inclined.
  3. The incense burner.

Now you want to light up the backflow cone at the very top and place the cone over the little hole on the backflow incense burner, if you can’t find where the hole is make sure to contact the company you purchased it from or read the instructions if it came with any.

There’s a small hole on the bottom of the incense cone which you must line up with the hole on the incense burner.

To maximize the visual effects from the smoke, place the burner in a spot that doesn’t have a strong air flow which can ruin the cone incense effect.
