Incense Cones vs Incense Sticks: Which One is Right For You?

At DivyaDham, we get a lot of questions from our buyers who would like to know about incense cones and incense sticks. Many people want to know which one is better and have more benefits. The fact is that incense cones and incense sticks have different benefits, and both of them have different benefits. Talking about the basics, incense cones are small cone-shaped dhoop made of compressed incense material. They usually burn for 10 to 15 minutes. On the other hand, Organic Incense sticks are thin wooden sticks that have been coated with the incense material. Usually, the incense sticks will burn for around 30 minutes.

Let us now talk about the differences between the incense cones and incense sticks.

  • The intensity of Aroma–The intensity of aroma is lower for the incense cones when we compare it with the incense sticks. So, if you want a subtle aroma while meditating or are not a fan of intense aroma, you can use incense cones over incense sticks.

  • Ease of Use– Talking about ease of use, we don't think there is a lot of difference between the incense cones and incense sticks. They are mostly the same, but as per some of the feedback received, people suggest that they find incense sticks easier to use when compared with the incense cones.

  • Duration of Burn– If you want something long-lasting, you can opt for Agarbbati from Sacred Flowers, as they burn for 30 minutes to one hour. However, if you want something that burns for a short duration, then the incense cones are a better choice for you.

  • Smoke– Usually, the incense sticks are smokier than the incense cones, but at DivyaDham, we use Organic Agarbatti to keep the smoke in check. This helps you take care of your loved ones. In addition, to protect the environment, we make Agarbatti from Temple Flower. This eliminates any ecological impact as well.

  • Area of Use– If you have a small area where you want to use incense, we recommend incense cones. However, if the area is large, you can use incense sticks since they have a more intense fragrance and a longer duration of burn. So, the area of use is important in determining what is better for you.

  • Care– Lastly, you need to take a little more care while using incense cones. You must not keep it on wood or any surface that can catch fire. You must always use a proper stand while using a dhoop cone to avoid any fire risk. In such cases, incense sticks are a little more versatile.

Final Take:

Based on the differentiating factors listed above, you can decide whether to use incense cones or incense sticks. You can purchase both of them and use them according to the occasion. No matter what you use, please ensure that you buy Natural Agarbatti from Sacred Flower to get the true benefits of the incense and the aroma.
