A ceramic incense burner is used every and in my home, it’s used like three-four times per day.

The first time I got an incense burner, it was from a relative who went to Tibet. I was enthralled because it was a backflow incense burner. The wonder of the burner was stunning. It was in the shape of a duck and before the incense was lit, the duck looked lonely. The moment Cary auntie lit the incense, the space around the duck filled with white smoke. Whenever I used to cry, my mom used to send me to watch the duck in this incense burner.

It is a calming therapy that filled my imagination while making me feel ecstatic. But, it took me decades to realize cleaning the incense burner was not as easy. After years of experiments, I have found a set of steps helpful to clean your ceramic incense burner quickly.

@Una, in order to help you with this, I need more detail. Is it an incense burner, or an Aromatherapy burner? Your post seems to say that it’s both, which I’ve never heard of.

Also, you mention that the affected burner is ceramic: is it raw, or glazed? And if it is glazed, then what with?

If, as I suspect, your burner is unglazed – made from raw ceramic – then it’s possible the water was too warm and has partially undone the firing process, turning the fired ceramic halfway back into raw clay. It would have subsequently dried again, but the change in colour could easily have been caused by this process. It should be okay, but I doubt there’s much you or anyone can do to get the original colour back. It’s always best to have a glazed burner, whether for incense or Aromatherapy, because both kinds of fragrance involve oils that can cause staining which, without a protective glaze, seeps permamently into the ceramic. For Aromatherapy burners in particular, at least the surface which comes in contact with the oil/water mix, should absolutely be glazed. I wouldn’t buy a burner that didn’t have, at the minimum, a glazed surface where it came into contact with the incense/oil.

If you could leave another comment with more details about your burner, I might be able to be of more help to you.

Love and Light.
