Was just wondering if anybody has made one and what was the best way,,I have the glass drill bit,,tried one, but it wasnt working out how I had hoped, I know I can google ideas an tips, but sometimes it is better to hear from someone who has first hand knowledge!!! thanks steph
Well, I had to google it cause I didn't have a clue what you were talking about!!! From what I understand you drill holes in the sides of the bottle near the bottom for ventilation and then burn the stick of incense in the bottle. Sounds like a neat idea. When I burn it I just stick it in the dirt in a plant pot. No clean up -just throw out the stick that's left. I store my Nag Champa in the hutch and it smells great whenever I open it.
Sorry, can't help w/drilling glass as I've never done it but think there's a glass bit and you get better results under running water. Maybe you could use a dremel as the hole wouldn't have to be too big.
We'll have to see what the experts on this board say. They'll be along soon.

Hi, Karen, I did drill a hole in the bottom of the bottle it was a 1/2 inch hole, but when I put the inscence in there, it went out, like it was not getting enough oxygen, I was wondering do I need more holes, like several in different places on the bottle or is there something else I am missing???

Was the incense right side up or upside down in the bottle? I looked at the "incense guru" site and it said hang it upside down from a split ring. I think that would make a difference. Other than that, I'm not too sure. This is the first time I've seen these.

I've been making those. I just drill a 1/2'' hole down by the bottom of the bottle, like you're gonna put string lights in it. I hang mine upside down from a split ring like the Guru said. I've noticed that it doesn't work as well if there's no air circulating in the room so I turn on the ceiling fan to get the air moving.

I'm just guessing, so don't think for a minute that I know what I'm talking about. (that was my legal disclaimer, lol) It seems to me that 2 holes could be better. Only because it would create a crossflow of air. Does that sound right?
