AQ INCENSE MONTH: #5 BACKFLOW INCENSE CONES
A relatively new addition, Backflow incense is about mixing the scent of incense with the visual appeal of downwards-flowing smoke, which cascades over specialised backflow burners like a waterfall.
Backflow cones are semi-hollow, and have an open hole at the base which aligns with a hole or channel on your backflow burner. When lit, the cone behaves normally, with the smoke travelling upwards, until the burning section reaches the hollow part. The smoke, which is slightly 'heavier' than normal incense cones, will then begin to flow downwards through the hole in the base - usually following a channel or route down over the design of your backflow burner. The smoke pattern is mesmerising and calming, making it excellent for yoga or meditation, or just relaxing. Just avoid breezes, which will spoil the flow of the smoke.
Some people are put off by the 'cheap' quality of some backflow cones, but there are now higher quality handmade cones available which are a step above - we stock ethical GOLOKA brand in 8 scents, so much nicer than the synthetic fragrances found in most backflow cones.
Burning backflow incense is as easy as regular cones - just remember that you need specialised backflow cones or you won't see the cascading effect, and you'll need a backflow burner that is designed around the hole in the base of the cone. You can burn regular cones on a backflow burner, but you won't see any waterfall effect.
