This is the Resin Burner for Frankincense resins
from Young Living
This burner right here came out of this box
and when you buy the Resin Burner, it comes included with one package of resins
the resin bag is 100 grams
I did not know the normal size package of resins came included with the resin burner, so I bought a bag of resins at the same time and now have two bags of resins.
The bag that is included in the Resin Burner box is the same size as the Resin bag you can buy separately
so after the first bag runs low, you can buy another bag of resins alone from Young Living without buying the Resin Burner again
Up to you
I actually like to touch the resins
After I touch the resins, it leaves the smell of frankincense on my hands for awhile
Here’s what it looks like-
It has a cord, which I already plugged in to the wall outlet
Just put in about a dozen little pieces of the Resins on the burner plate
spread it out
one important tip
always remember to watch the temperature-
this is the temperature control
You don’t want it to bubble up and overflow from getting too hot too fast or it will damage the resin burner
You want to keep the temperature as low as possible
So I will turn it on now
Then if you don’t see any light on the power switch, the temperature dial might be turned down too low
The red light in the power switch will dim or brighten according to how you have adjusted the temperature dial
(oops it wasn’t on)
now it’s on!
see the light in the power switch?
Now I will turn it down to where I almost do not see any light in the power switch
(turning down temperature)
Did you see that?
I admit that sometimes I like to take the lid off and watch the resins melting,
it looks cool to see the resins melting!
A word of caution, do not use/ set this up where children can touch it
Keep this out of children’s reach. It can reach up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit
It’s beautiful and you can use it year-round.
It is available from Young Living year-round
When I want to clean it,
this scraper comes in the box with the Resin Burner
I prefer to turn it on and have it warm so the burnt resins are soft, which make it easier to scrape out the burnt resins
with a piece of cardboard, a small square will do,
then I hold the small piece of cardboard and scrape the soft resins with the scraper onto the cardboard
Then the cardboard that now has the little pile of burnt resins can now just be thrown away, no need to keep the burnt resins.
It is black and not the best smelling when it’s burnt, just throw the burnt resins away
When it turns black in the resin burner, then you know it’s time to scrape it all out
Then put in some fresh resins in the resin burner!
It came with a little instructions
But the most important tip I got from friends was to keep it at a low temperature and not use too many resins in it!
Just a little resins is adequate
I like using this because when I use it, I notice that while it’s burning on one end of the house,
I can, after awhile, smell it on the other end of my house
The smell is deeper and more extensive than if I had diffused Frankincense essential oil in a diffuser
The frankincense resins (burned) have a deeper, more far reaching smell in the home
It’s a good calming smell
This Resin Burner is NOT for use with essential oils
for use with resins only
This can be hard to get during the month of December
Because it’s a very popular item from Young Living during the Christmas season
But this is available year-round!
and I actually thought when I got it for my family last Christmas that I would just use it during the Christmas season
and then put it away
But… I did not do that.
It has been out and in use in my home for the whole year
So go enjoy Frankincense all year round
oh- look, it’s starting to smoke a little, time to check it!
I see it’s starting to melt a little,
I will turn it down a bit
