Sand for filling Incense Bowls, coloured Red/Brown, as from the Sahara Desert in Africa.

A 200g bag of a red/brown coloured sand from the Saharan Desert. Red and Brown are the main colours, but you'll find the sand is flecked with multiple other random  colours such as white, black, lilac etc.
Interesting Fact: Sometimes, storms over the Saharan Desert whip up huge quantities of sand and dust high up into the atmosphere. This is then transported long distances by the wind; eventually coming down in raindrops. Once the rain evaporates, a red/brown covering is left behind. Whilst a common occurrence in African and Mediterranean countries, this happens as far away from the Desert as the UK and Nordic countries.

Each bag contains just over 200g. Suggested appropriate bowls to use in conjunction with this sand include:

Tips on burning Incense Sticks:

Light the tip of the stick with a match or lighter, then gently blow or fan out the flame, leaving a red ember burning at the tip of the stick. Then insert the stick into the holder. This could be a hole designed for the purpose, or a more open sand area, which holds the stick well and allows flexibility for sticks of different diameters.

When you use a sand-filled bowl for burning Incense sticks, getting rid of the ash is easy. When you want to rid the bowl of accumulated ash, take the bowl outside to an open area, stand up-wind and blow the ash away gently downwind. The ash will dissipate, leaving clean sand behind.

Things to be cautious about when using incense sticks: 

Incense sticks are safer than candles – no open flame – but please be sensible; do not burn unattended. Don’t place in a drafty position (will burn down too quickly and dissipate aroma). Make sure Incense is fully extinguished before leaving the room. Keep out of reach of children and animals.
