White ash is used to fill an incense burner as a base to support burning incense sticks, cones, makko trails or charcoal (for wood chips, granules, pellets, pressed tablets). The ash is lightweight and breathable to permit the flow of oxygen to the surface. White ash is typically made from ash of wood or rice husks.
