Golden Temple Charcoal Tablets - each tablet measures approx 40mm and each packet has 10 rolls and are sealed in airtight packaging in order to maintain efficient combustion.
How to Use Remove tablet from sealed roll and place charcoal, the round side down in abalone shell, censer, or other "fire proof" dish. Light the edge of the tablet with a match or taper. Hold the match to the edge of the charcoal until it begins to sparkle. The sparkling will continue across the charcoal, otherwise use additional matches till it does. You may fan the tablet a little to get it good and hot. Once the tablet is lit, you may take a small amount (1/4 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon) of burning herbs or resins and pour onto the lit cake of charcoal. The incense will burn/melt and smoke releasing its scent into the air. These will burn for several minutes and then you may add more. If the ashes start to give off an unpleasant odour, take a metal spoon or knife and scrape off any residue before adding more material. Tweezers work well for moving the tablet around INSIDE the censer. The tablet should be left to burn out and cool in the censer. To extinguish a tablet before it has fully cooled quench in a container of cold water.
Please Note - Do Not handle charcoal when the tablet is lit. Do not dispose the ash remains in a waste paper bin, as this may cause a fire. Always make sure the tablet is extinguished before disposing of it.
