  • The wind is too strong: Compressing incense when burning often maintains a small, low flame that is easily extinguished when there is a sudden strong wind. You should pay attention to see if the incense goes out there is a strong wind blowing through or not!
  • Incense rings are stuck together: This error only occurs for incense sticks. The incense sticks are stuck together due to a manufacturing error. Note that before using your hands to gently separate the incense sticks so that they do not stick together, this phenomenon will not occur.
