To fulfill the same wish, one needs to follow certain instructions which could leave the incense sticks lit for a very long time and produce mesmerizing scent for the same period of time.
Light it properly: It is very much essential that once the incense stick is lit, you should not blow the flame soon. Keep the flame on the incense stick for a maximum of ten seconds.
Place the incense stick at a specific angle: Most of us place incense sticks on any flat object and put a heavy object on its end for a grip. But keeping the stick in the same way as shown in the image, could leave it burning and producing scent for a very long time.
Upright VS Upside Down: If you place your incense stick upside down and not upright then try to change your habit. Experiments show that an incense stick placed upside down burns 25% faster. Hence, for scent to be released from incense stick for a longer time, it is advised to keep it in upright direction.
