Bukhoor is not a self-lit substance, an electric burner will do the trick. To burn it, you will need Bukhoor from Al Haramain Perfumes. You will need Mabkhara, which is a traditional burner and charcoal discs. They will work better than any modern-day burners.

Steps to Burn Bukhoor

  • Place the charcoal discs in the incense burner or mabkhara
  • Try burning the discs with a lighter or a matchstick.
  • As you see the sparks traversing the coal, the disc will be surrounded by grey ash. This indicates that it is hot and ready.
  • Place a piece of Bukhoor on top of the disc and enjoy the intense smoke coming out of the discs. Make sure you use tongs to place the Bukhoor.
  • After you are done with burning Bukhoor, take a ceramic dish to cover the Mabkhara to extinguish the coal disc.

This is it about Bukhoor! It is the next best thing that you should have in your closet. Sensual, spiritual, and addictive, it is something that you and those around you will adore. Stay tuned with us to buy perfume online or to read for more posts related to perfumes.
