Darbla Posted December 13, 2009 Report Share Posted December 13, 2009 Someone posted a way while back (it might have been NewOrleansLady; I can't find the post now to give credit where due) that a good way of soaking incense sticks is to put your FO / DPG blend in a water bottle, drop the sticks in, and lay the water bottle on it's side. I'm about to try my first incense sticks and was examining this. All the water bottles I'm looking at would have the the handle ends (the little end parts without scent) of the sticks jacked up on the shoulder and neck of the bottle, with some of the part you want scent on also raised up out of the FO. I'm sure you're meant to roll the bottle around some to get scent on all parts of the sticks, but that still wouldn't get them uniformly soaked; the parts closer to the neck of the bottle just wouldn't get as much of a soaking overall, and I'm assuming not as strong a scent.I had envisioned tieing a string to the handle ends of my sticks and them all lying flat against the sides of the bottle, and the string enabling me to get them back out. So are there taller bottles that the whole sticks will fit down in to evenly soak the entire incense part of the sticks?Also how long should one let them soak? That wasn't addressed on the site I bought my supplies from. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
