can you use regular incense cones into backflow?

This is a question that often comes up when people are trying to figure out how to use incense cones in an aromatherapy setting.

The answer to this question depends on the type of cone used and the particular backflow system being used.

Regular incense cones can be used in backflow burners, but they will not produce the same effect as backflow-specific incense cones.

The smoke from regular incense cones will not cascade down in the same way as it does with backflow cones, so you won't get the full effect of the burner.

If you want to use regular incense cones in a backflow burner, it's best to place them on top of the burner, rather than inside.

This way, you'll still get some of the benefits of the backflow effect, but your smoke won't be obstructed.

What is backflowing incense?


Backflowing incense, also known as reverse incense or siphon incense, is an incense technique in which the incense is lit from the bottom and then poured upward, through the burning cone, to create a column of fragrant smoke.


The smoke is then exhaled by the incense burner. Backflowing incense is used to create a stronger fragrance and to increase the area of effect of the incense.

What are backflow incense cones?

Backflow incense cones, also known as incense cones, are small metal containers that hold compressed incense and are used to smoke it.

They are available in a variety of styles, including drop, cone, and swirled designs. Most backflow incense cones are made of brass, but some are made of other metals, such as copper.


How backflow incense cones work A backflow incense cone is filled with incense, and when the user inhales, the incense becomes compressed.


This makes it easy to smoke, as the user does not need to hold the cone for long periods of time. As the user draws in the smoke, the incense is released slowly and evenly, so that it delivers a consistent and pleasant fragrance.


Backflow incense cones are not toxic if they are used properly. If the resin incense in the backflow incense cone is not stored at the right temperature, it may become toxic.


If the incense is stored in a hot environment, the resin may become liquefied and may be dangerous to use. If the user inhales this liquefied incense, it may become harmful to the lungs.


Backflow incense cones are not toxic, as long as they are used properly. If the incense is stored in a hot environment, it may become liquefied and dangerous to use.
