This 1.7-ounce bag of white sifted ash is ready for use in your incense bowl. For our three-leg Japanese incense bowls you’ll need between two and three bags to start. You can care for your incense bowl by sifting the unburnt pieces of incense with our altar cleaning kit ($25), and add or remove incense ash to your bowl as needed.
The ash is fine. I couldn't tell how much it would take so I got two bags, but my bowl is quite small, so it took less than one bag.
For one, it seems like I cannot meditate without incense. I moved to another residence and in that move all of my incense ashes were dumped by mistake. What a life saver this ash was! One bag was all that was needed.
This is very helpful when starting out. I used just one bag [tamped] for the small incense bowl. I may add a second to fill to top, but you def. don't need three. It is very smooth & airy.
Unsure how else to rate ash, except that it is "just what the Dr. ordered". Perfect for holdiing my insense.
Not much to comment about "Ash", but it is a good quality product for a great price
