Rose Himalayan Backflow Incense Cones are handmade from essential oils, exotic flowers, aromatic powdered wood and scented with rose. Unlike regular incense cones, backflow incense cones are semi-hollow with an opening at the base.

When paired with a backflow incense burner, the smoke is pulled downwards, creating stunning cascading smoke effects such as the illusion of a waterfall or misty mountains — all depending on the design of your backflow burner.

About Incense and Incense Offering

Across all Buddhist traditions, incense is one of the most common and basic substances used as offerings to the Buddhas and enlightened beings. Within Tibetan Buddhism, incense is typically used as an offering to the Three Jewels — Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. It is also employed as part of Buddhist ritual to purify offering substances such as water, food and light.

In traditional Tibetan Medicine, incense is often used as a medicinal substance to treat certain ailments. Due to the healing qualities of its ingredients, Tibetan incense can soothe and calm a mind affected by depression, restlessness, anxiety and stress. Specific incense formulas can also be beneficial for common complaints such as migraines, cough, dizziness and insomnia.

On a spiritual level, the offering of incense reminds us to hold our vows purely and creates the causes for us to do so. In Buddhist thought, morality is considered to be one of the Six Perfections of a Bodhisattva practitioner. As such, it is one of the keys to reaching full enlightenment.

“Incense offerings should be done daily and consistently with great confidence in the supreme Dharma that liberates our mind from all sufferings and to the holy sage Buddha who has traversed over samsara.”
– Tsem Rinpoche

As we make incense offerings to the Buddhas, we generate the merits to become like them and hold our vows perfectly. This collection of merits is based on our Bodhisattva aspirations, and will lead us to the realisation of higher views which sees the faults of serving oneself as opposed to serving the needs of all sentient beings.

Therefore, offering incense of the best quality with the highest motivation may seem to be a simple spiritual act, but it leads to higher insight, integrity of practice, consistency of practice, generation of merits, and the ability to hold our vows which leads to the generation of higher attainments and insight within our mindstream.

  • Light the tip of the incense cone.
  • Gently extinguish the flame by fanning or blowing on it. The cone should be gently smouldering and releasing delicate wisps of fragrant smoke.
  • Place on a backflow incense burner with the tip facing up. Ensure that the hole at the base of the cone aligns with the hole on the backflow burner.
  • When the cone starts to burn at the hollow section, the cascading smoke effect will begin.
  • To maximise the cascading effect, burn in a place that is not breezy or draughty.
  • Ensure the surface below the incense burner is heat-proof, as hot ash may fall onto the surface below.
  • Always burn incense in moderate quantities to prevent overheating.
  • Never leave unattended.
  • For best results, burn in a backflow incense burner.
  • Backflow incense cones can also be used with a normal incense cone burner but they will not have a cascading smoke effect. Alternatively, place the lit cone in a bowl-style burner on a bed of natural ash.
