Incense Charcoal
While there are a few types of natural incense charcoal available, the major brands most often purchased by incense users are filled with potassium nitrate, high-tar coal, or other undesirable ingredients that cause the charcoal to smell terrible and burn far too hot for most incense ingredients.

Charcoal from The Incense Dragon is made from 2 ingredients: natural, handcrafted charcoal and a natural gum binder.  That's it!  No leftover wood scraps from the plywood industry or smelly chemical oxidizers are used.  The result is charcoal that burns evenly with virtually no scent.

Natural Censer Filler
2 ounces        $5.00 

Your censer (incense burner) needs a proper fill material to give you its best results.  Sand, salt, and other materials can be used, but for maximum utility and performance you should use a filler that can hold a shape and, most importantly, trap oxygen beneath the surface.

Have you ever had an incense cone that wouldn't burn to the end?  Would you like to be able to burn joss sticks on their sides so there is no leftover little "nub" that doesn't burn?  Using the right fill material can help.

Natural Censer Filler from The Incense Dragon is made from the same mineral material that major Japanese incense companies sell under the name "white ash".  Although it is not an ash, it is a natural mineral material that is ideal for use in any style censer.  It is perfect for "kodo style" incense burning or just daily charcoal use.  Filler from The Incense Dragon gives you 2 full ounces (enough to fill a medium sized censer/koro or 2 small censers) at an unbeatable price.  Our filler is sourced from material harvested in the USA.
