Incense Storage

Since incense storage questions come up so often here at ORS, we’ve added a new page on the left side-bar called “Incense Storage” that contains some of the wisdom shared here over the years.  Check it out!

    Great info on storing incense. I do have one comment to make though.

    In the past I have used standard 2″ X 12″ zip-lock incense bags to transfer incense into for storage but found a problem with this. I found the oils in heavily oiled incense has some bleed-through in the bags. I had put some Pure Incense sticks in a regular zip-lock bag and laid it on an antique pine dresser. A week later I noticed that some oils had bled through the bag and had discoloured the finish on the dresser where the bag had sat. The area was also a little sticky to the touch.

    I’ve come to notice also that most company’s that sell wrapped incense ( Pure Incense, Shroff ) use a “crispy” type plastic wrapping that doesn’t seem to have this problem. I also wonder if there is any transfer of scents or chemicals from the plastic bags to the incense.

    Just my observations…

      Hey Dave R. – thanks for the real-world experience with ziplocks. I tweaked the Incense Storage page with your comments in mind.
