Do incense needs to cure?


I’m not a doctor, and I’m not going to pretend to be one now. But, from what I’ve heard and read, it sounds like most medicines need time to “cure.” The same might be said for incense. Visit

In fact, some believe that incense shouldn’t even be burned until it’s had a chance to cure. So, what does this mean for incense lovers? Should we only buy cured incense? Or is it possible to cure our own incense? Keep reading to find out!

There are two main types of incense:

  • Stick
  • Cone

Stick incense is made by rolling a mix of powdered ingredients into a thin stick. Cone incense is made by pressing the same mix of ingredients into a small cone shape. The vast majority of commercially available incense is stick incense. This is because it’s cheaper and easier to mass-produce than cone incense.

Stick incense generally doesn’t need to be cured, since the sticks are small and the burning time is relatively short. However, some people like to cure their stick incense anyway, just to be on the safe side. Visit

Cone incense, on the other hand, often needs to be cured before it’s burned. This is because cones are larger, and they burn for a longer period of time. If you’re not sure whether or not your incense needs to be cured, it’s always better to err on the side of caution.

Process of curing incense:

Curing incense is a simple process. First, find a cool, dry place to store your incense. A cupboard or drawer is usually ideal. Next, light a charcoal disk and place it in a fire-safe bowl or dish. Then, add your incense to the bowl and allow it to burn until it’s completely gone.

Once your incense is completely burned, you can store it in an airtight container. Cured incense will last for many months, although the quality will gradually decline over time. Also visit

So, there you have it! Curing incense is a simple process that can ensure your incense burns properly and smells great. So, next time you buy some incense, be sure to cure it before you burn it. Your nose will thank you!
