Extraction method: Wild-harvested tree resin. Raw.

Storage: Keep sealed in a cool, dry, dark place. Heat, oxygen, and light degrade the product.
To burn as incense, place a charcoal round on a fireproof surface, hollow side up. Carefully light the round with a match or lighter. The round will begin to spark. When the sparking dies down somewhat, sprinkle a few pieces of resin atop the charcoal. A little goes a long way. Take extra caution as charcoal round and surface around it will become quite hot. Burn in a well-ventilated area and do not inhale the smoke.
