Heat not burn tobacco sticks under fire
Smokeless tobacco products that ‘heat not burn’ aren’t quite as healthy as they’re made out to be, as new research from the US finds that the device heats up much more than claimed, releasing toxic chemicals and increasing the amount of nicotine inhaled. The manufacturers of the iQOS heat stick (Philip Morris International) recommend cleaning the device after every 20 heat sticks but the researchers found that charred tobacco debris builds up after every stick, which shouldn’t happen if the device only heated to the temperature claimed. The heat was also sufficient to melt the plastic film (designed to cool the tobacco vapour) even when it wasn’t in contact with the heating element, releasing toxic chemicals like formaldehyde cyanohydrin.

‘Heat not burn’ smokeless tobacco product may not be as harm free as claimed
iQOS use associated with tobacco plug charring and toxic chemical release
iQOS, one of the first ‘heat not burn’ smokeless tobacco products marketed as a safer alternative to conventional cigarettes, may not be as harm free as its manufacturer claims, suggests research published online in the journal Tobacco Control.
iQOS is a battery-operated electronic device, which mimics the looks, taste, and sensory experience of a cigarette. It contains a specially designed heat stick, which uses a tobacco plug to deliver nicotine. This is heated to temperatures well below those at which conventional cigarettes burn, producing a tobacco-infused vapour for inhalation rather than smoke.
Tobacco smoke is what contains the cocktail of chemicals that is so harmful to health.
The manufacturer, Philip Morris International, has evaluated IQOS in several published studies, but there has been little independent research.
To try and plug this gap, the US researchers set out to assess the performance of iQOS under five different puff conditions, and the impact of two cleaning protocols: a thorough clean after use of each heat stick to remove fluid and debris from the heater; and the manufacturer’s recommendations to clean the device after every 20 heat sticks before using the brush cleaners supplied with the product.
The researchers also wanted to gauge if the plastic polymer film filter, which aims to cool the vapour, might pose a risk to health.
Each iQOS heat stick only lasts for 6 minutes after which it automatically shuts off and requires recharging before use. So to get the most out of each heat stick, real life users would have to shorten the interval between puffs, speeding up their puff rate, and potentially breathing in larger amounts of vapour, say the researchers.
The tobacco plug charred as a result of pyrolysis–thermal decomposition in the absence of oxygen. Charring was more extensive when thorough cleaning was not carried out after use of each heat stick, suggesting that build-up of debris and fluid increases pyrolytic temperatures, say the researchers.
Analysis of the polymer film showed that irrespective of whether cleaning was done or not, the intensity of the heat was sufficient to melt the film even though it was not in direct contact with the heating element.
Following the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning instructions increased both the extent of charring and polymer film melt.
Of further concern was the release of fomaldehyde cyanohydrin by the melting filter at temperatures that all users will easily exceed, say the researchers. This chemical is highly toxic even at very low levels.
“iQOS is not strictly a ‘heat not burn’ tobacco product,” write the researchers, who go on to say: “This study has shown that the iQOS system may not be as harm free as claimed, and also emphasises the urgent need for further safety testing as the popularity and user base of this product is growing rapidly.”
How to Burn Incense Safely
There is nothing as soothing and calming as the fresh and relaxing aroma of a burning incense stick. An incense stick can lighten up your mood and pacify your spirits. However, you should be extremely careful when lighting an incense stick.
Well, perhaps this is because an unattended incense stick can prove to be a major hazard and might even burn down your house if not properly taken care of.
That said; all you need is a bit of care, as burning an incense stick is an easy and effortless process. Just place the incense stick in an incense holder and light the top end of the stick with the help of a match. Make sure that the top of the incense stick has properly been lit and is burning.
To get the best out of your incense stick, and to create a perfect ambiance, it is necessary that you use it properly
Guidelines To Burn Incense Sticks:
When you want to burn an incense stick, hold it at the thick end, and that is the tip that you would be lighting up. Therefore pick the stick that is thinner at the end.
Now, all you have to do is light up a match, hold the coated end to the flame, and wait until it catches fire.
Now, allow the flame to burn for 10 to 15 seconds and the flame will taper off on it’s own, or you can blow it on your own. Don’t burn the stick for a long time, as this will lead to a wasted stick of incense.
Now your favorite is lit and all you have to do is place it in the incense holder. The incense stick can be secured by placing the incense holder on a plate that might catch the ashes.
Here is a list of do’s and don’ts that would guide you better
Do’s of lighting an incense stick
1. Always keep your incense stick on a burner that is flameproof and is meant for the purpose.
2. It is highly recommended to keep the agarbatti burner on a heat resistant surface, like a trivet or a ceramic tile.
3. Please ensure you put the incense on surface that is heat-resistant, and no flammable items like curtains or Papers are near where the ashes can drop. Incense ash catchers are generally designed to help with this (you can browse our collection of stick incense burners here).
4. The ash from the incense stick can cause discoloration to your furniture. Also, it can become a fire hazard if the incense stick comes in contact with the fixtures, cabinets, tables, and other furniture.
5. Burn the incense stick only in a well-ventilated area. Do not light incense in a closed room or inside a cupboard.
Don’ts of burning an incense stick
1. An incense stick is not safe to throw away when it is not completely extinguished. A burning incense stick that has been carelessly tossed into the bin can quickly trigger a fire and cause a mishap.
2. Never keep incense sticks within reach of children, pets, and babies. It can cause serious burns and scars if touched accidentally.
3. It is safe to avoid incense sticks if you have any breathing disorders such as asthma. Please consult with your physician.
4. Some incense sticks have mind-altering effects due to their herbal content. Always check the effects of your incense.
5. Never leave an incense stick lit and unattended in your home.
6. An incense stick should not be consumed orally, no matter what.
How long does it take for an incense stick to burn?
An incense stick is expected to burn for 20-40 minutes in most common cases, depending on its thickness, length, and quality. Of course, the burning time of the incense would depend on the size of the incense stick.
Simple steps to follow to reduce air pollution caused by burning incense?
* Check on ventilation
How about opening the windows around to improve air circulation in the room, while the incense burns
* Check on the Incense Type
Consider choosing incense that produces less smoke or smokeless. The smoke from the burning charcoal, pollute the air by emitting carbon monoxide.Always choose incense that’s made using Natural Ingredients,these incense would produce smoke that’s less harmful to you and the environment
Your Turn ( light Incense) :
You might prefer to light an incense stick to balance your emotions and lift up your spirits. However, you should always avoid touching it when it is burning. Further, make sure that it is being lit in a well-ventilated area. Any source of fire should be considered dangerous and treated with at most care and attention as even the smallest of cinder is enough to become a huge fire.
Although an incense stick might not pose a serious fire threat, it is always better to be safe than to be sorry. By sticking to the above-mentioned do’s and don’ts and with some care, you surely can prevent any mishap from happening.

How to Use Smudge Sticks to Clean the Air
Courtesy of ASH NYC
If you’re feeling a little antsy about get-togethers at your place, there is one simple ritual you can practice in just a few minutes to clear your space of any negative vibes and set good intentions for days to come: sage smudging. To the uninitiated, this ritual may seem a little daunting, but we promise it’s incredibly simple and quick.
What Is Smudging?
Smudging involves the burning of sage to encourage cleansing or blessing in a space or person.
“Smudging is a Native American tradition using the energy of a plant to cleanse negative energy out of a space, person, or object,” says smudging expert, Michelle D’Avella of Pushing Beauty. “It’s a spiritual practice of cleansing, but has been adopted by many people as a way to clear out and cleanse a room.” She took us through everything we need to know about sage smudging before and after a party.
Meet the Expert
Michelle D’Avella is a breathwork teacher, mentor, and writer helping people heal from past traumas, accept themselves, and ultimately live happier lives.
Know When to Smudge
“Smudging is best done before and after people come and go from your home,” explains D’Avilla. “People’s energy can linger in a space, and when the family is around, it’s a great time to clear out what was left behind and neutralize the energy.” Take a few moments before your guests arrive to give your space a quick sage smudging, and repeat the morning after. Not only will it leave your space smelling great, but it will also get rid of any negative energy stuck in your home.
A common misconception with sage smudging is that you need to burn the whole stick, but D’Avilla suggests burning as much or as little as you need. “You don’t need to use an entire smudge stick,” she says. “Break off one leaf, light the tip, blow it out, and then use your hand or a feather to waft the smoke through the space. A little goes a long way.”
When getting ready to sage your space, having the right instruments makes a world of a difference. “Traditionally, Native Americans incorporate the four elements: sage (earth), a lighter or matches (fire), an abalone shell (water), and a feather (air),” explains D’Avilla. The abalone shell is used to hold underneath the sage stick and contain its ashes, while the feather is used to spread the smoke throughout the space. “The sage and any other herbs are placed in the abalone shell, lit, and then the feather is used to waft the smoke throughout the space. At the very least you’ll need sage and a lighter.” If you don’t have an abalone shell or a feather, you can use any fireproof dish and your hands for fanning.
Work Around the Room
People often wonder where to start when sage smudging their homes, and the expert recommends starting with any space that feels negative to you. “Any spiritual act is a personal practice,” says D’Avilla. “I recommend connecting to your intuition and working with what resonates with you. You can open a window to let out the negative energy. You can work around the exterior of the space, around doors and windows, and then go to the middle of the room. Keep fanning the flame to get the smoke moving. You can set intentions silently or verbally to clear out any negative energy in the space and allow in the light.”
Set Your Intentions
When sage smudging your space, it’s important to set positive intentions to bring good vibes into your life. “Anything you are working on within your own life is a good start,” says D’Avilla. “An example would be: ‘Cleanse this space of any negative energy. Fill this space with light and love.’ Again, feel into what resonates for you. Use your intuition, and have fun with it!” Try attracting love or letting go of fears or negative emotions. Focus on what you want to attract and what you’d like to let go of.
Take Your Time
Just as you don’t need to burn the whole sage stick, you also don’t need to spend hours on this ritual. In fact, in some cases, a few minutes can suffice. “As you connect to your intuition you’ll get a sense for how much clearing a space needs,” explains D’Avilla. “It also depends on the size of your space. It can take a few minutes, but if you add any other rituals into the practice, it could take longer.” Do what feels natural to you, and stop when you feel like the negative energy has left your space.

Incense Sticks, Holders & How To Burn Guide
The usage of combustible incense dates back to B.C. times when the Egyptians burned dried bouquets to emit delightful fragrances. Over the centuries, the practice crossed over from the Babylonians who lit incense sticks during prayers to sacred oracles, through ancient China for its own religious rituals as well as Korean Buddhist monks for cleansing ceremonies. In modern day, burning incense sticks has become a more widespread practice with varying motivations. Some light them during meditation and yoga to help soothe the mind. Others, especially in streetwear culture, purchase meticulously-crafted chambers produced by labels such as NEIGHBORHOOD or Yeenjoy Studio to collect and use them to burn incense sticks.
Here’s a foolproof guide to burning incense sticks, different holders, and the type of scents to inspire relaxation alongside a breadth of moods. Read on to learn more and let us know your favorite types.
Three of the common practices for using incense include ritualistic, spiritual and healing. One ritualistic example involves Buddhists burning incense to cleanse a specific area or adjust the energy in a room. For traditional Buddhist ceremonies, people burn a handful of incense sticks as they bow down to statues in the temples. Similarly, for a spiritual method, Catholics burn incense in preparation for prayer during a religious service. Lastly, one healing use of incense includes the burning of sandalwood to help relieve depression and insomnia.
The aforesaid practices predominantly touch on religious and cultural reasons. However, the more modern incense aficionado may wish to light incense in order to stir up feelings of nostalgia. “Most of the beliefs and practices surrounding the use of incense are cultural or religious, dating back many centuries,” said Johan Lam, founder of MAAPS Incense. “We believe that scents have the ability to transport you to a different time or place, which is why we named our company MAAPS. A scent can instantly take you to a destination that you’ve traveled to or back to a memory from your childhood.” Although some practices may be complicated to understand, the process of lighting incense sticks is much easier than one expects.
Types of Incense
Raw incense sticks are traditionally made using natural materials such as bamboo. The upper portion of each stick is covered with sawdust paste extracted from machilus wood — a variant of hardwood that burns slower. The reason for using sawdust is because of a great absorbent of fragrance. Moreover, charcoal is also coated on sticks to help it burn and is popularly found in incense sticks produced from India. After adding the sawdust and charcoal coating, the sticks are dipped in fragrance oil and are left out to dry for approximately 12 hours. Conclusively, they are encased in odor-retaining packages and then shipped out for sale.
From common types to funky blends, there are countless variants of incense sticks to choose from, including frankincense, sage, cinnamon, myrrh and amber, all among the earliest to be recorded. “When people burned roots and specific types of wood, an aromatic smoke wafted out of the fire, creating the first types of incense. In the Far East and the Middle East, frankincense became extremely valuable, even more than gold in some instances,” said perfume and cologne specialist, FragranceX.
Of course, common types differ based on one’s place of birth or cultural upbringing. “If incense was not a part of one’s cultural upbringing, the introduction to incense for most Americans was through classic Nag Champa sticks, sold inexpensively through your local bodega or gas station,” said Lam. Having added that, “For the HYPEBEAST world specifically, Nag Champa was a signature scent at some of the most prominent streetwear purveyors from New York to Japan.”
These many variations of incense are equally as profound as the different practices for burning it.
Choosing the Right Holder
Not only is there a number of incense stick types out there, but holders as well. The most common type is the wooden plank with a bamboo reed, where the incense stick is placed inside the small hole at the curved end of the wooden holder. These holders can also be made of aluminum, ceramic, glass, stone, and bone. Another simple holder is MAAPS’ small holder made entirely of metal as shown in the image above. Many of these minimalist holders are designed to hold the incense sticks completely upright or at a 45-degree angle.
Nowadays, streetwear labels such as NEIGHBORHOOD have been producing more complicated chambers that can even hold different types of incense sticks at the same time. The Japanese imprint is most recognized for producing Chinese Kaolin clay incense chambers in unique shapes such as owls, skulls, and more recently, an N.E.R.D.-inspired chamber.
Not only do people buy these chambers to light their desired incense sticks, but they are also largely collected in the streetwear sphere as coveted household decor. Take, for example, Yeenjoy Studio’s Terracotta Warrior Stormtrooper Incense Burner that would appeal equally to Star Wars fans. Not only is the chamber functional, but it’s also a sculptural work of art crafted to liven up a living space.
All in all, these beautifully-designed incense chambers by MAAPS, NEIGHBORHOOD or Yeenjoy Studio “speak to a larger trend in men’s fashion where the consumer is starting to seek out and purchase home goods like they do with their clothing,” expressed Lam. “We try to create incense holders that are also design objects so that when they’re not being used, you still have an interesting piece sitting on your desk or mantle,” he added.
Burning Incense Sticks
The process of burning incense sticks is fairly simple. First, take your preferred incense stick from its packaging and grab the uncoated end of the stick. Next, light the coated end using a lighter or match. If the stick is coated on both ends, you can simply decide which side you want to spark up. After lighting it, you’ll want to wait a few seconds for the flame to grow in size and then extinguish it by fanning or lightly blowing it out. Once you’ve extinguished the flame, the smoldering process begins and wisps of smoke will immediately fill the air. Lastly, carefully place your incense stick inside your holder carefully. You may need to make slight adjustments depending on the holder you choose.

How to make your own sage smudge stick.
The practice of ‘smudging’ or ‘to smudge’ has been around for centuries. Originating in the Americas this ceremony was practised by Indigenous people. It involves the burning of sacred herbs, in some cases for a spiritual cleansing or blessing.
While the particulars of the ceremonies, and the herbs used can vary widely between tribes and nations, many use forms of sage (common sage or white sage) and cedar (Palo Santo) that is local to their region.
‘Smudging’ rituals are known for their ability to clean energy, restore balance, and banish negativity. For thousands of years, cultures around the world have believed that a person’s energy is like perfume – once you come in contact with someone else’s vibes, good or bad, they tend to linger for a while.
I like to smudge the house after an argument or when the kids bicker. Or if I’ve had bad news or a stressful day. It’s a chance to banish negativity and welcome peace and clarity.
Even if you’re unfamiliar with the ancient practice, you’ve probably seen smudge sticks – you know, those fat, leafy bundles of sage that pop up on yoga instructors Instagram accounts. They needn’t be just for those in the wellness industry or a bit of hippy nonsense. They are a lovely thing to do, and to make.
I’m gonna show you how to make your own smudge stick…
How to make a sage smudge stick
You will need:
- sage & any other herbs or flowers you might like.
- cotton string – natural twine.
- Embellishment – I sometimes add a small crystal to the end, it adds to the experience.
First of all you need to gather herbs and flowers which you are going to burn in your smudge stick bundle. The main basis is sage, and luckily for me, I have a sage bush growing in my garden. You can also use any herbs or woody aromatic shrubs you can find. Such as:
- rose petals
Try and mix things up, you’ll soon know what you like and what smells terrible!
- gather your foraged ingredients. You might want a pure sage bundle or add a few bits of lavender. It’s up to you.
- Tie the bundle at the base with a secure knot.
- Starting in the centre, wrap the string toward the top of the bundle before returning to the base. Be sure to crisscross tightly, but not to the point where you crush the contents. Cut off any excess string.
- Hang the bundle upside down in a cool, dry place for at least a week.
- Now it’s time to smudge! Light one end evenly over a heat-safe bowl and let it burn for a few seconds, before putting out the flame. Set an intention and carefully use the smoking sage stick to cleanse your space.

This guide is meant to help you gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of incense. It will also help you figure out which products you need to purchase in order to start using incense. If you are new to burning incense and would like to get burning, feel free to read the section on Types of Incense and the Incense Burners and Holders to find the incense you like and a matching burner. If you are looking to gain a deeper understanding of incense, then read on!
Incense are made from organic material that release a fragrance when burned. Incense have been used for thousands of years starting with Egyptians who used them for rituals, warding off evil spirits, repelling insects, and simply to cover up bad odors. Around 2000 BCE, the Chinese began using incense for religious purposes and blending in different plant materials that we are more familiar with today. Nowadays you will find incense used in meditation, in homes for their calming affects, and in stores to set a certain ambiance. They come in different shapes, colors, scents, binding material, and some require different methods to burn.
b. Burning Method
Direct burning incense are incense composed of a combustible material as a part of the incense. This allows for the incense to burn continuously without an outside heating source. Most common incense fall in this category including cored stick, solid stick, dhoop, coil incense, and rope incense.
Indirect burning incense do not contain a combustible material and require an outside source of heat to burn the organic material. This heat source is usually either charcoal, burning embers, or a hot metal plate. Examples of indirect burning incense including powder incense and resins.
c. Composition of Direct Burning Incense
Direct burning incense are composed of a combustible material and a binder. The combustible material is usually charcoal or wood powder. This is what allows you to light and incense once and allowing it to burn through on its own. The charcoal or wood selected usually have little to no scent when burned.
The binder is generally made from organic material, usually gum Arabic or Tragacanth. This helps hold the fragrant material together.
d. Processing of Incense
Hand Dipped: This process uses unscented combustible powder extruded into sticks also called “blanks”. They are dipped into scented liquid allowing the stick to absorb the scent. This is generally for DIYers who want to create their own scented incense.
Extrusion: Extrusion is the process where the incense mixture is molded by hand or with a machine press to form different shaped incense. This is how solid stick incense, coil incense, and dhoop are made.
Paste Rolled Stick: The incense mixture is rolled with a paddle into sticks. A core, such as bamboo, is the rolled with the mixture to form cored incense sticks.
Powder Coated Stick: A process where stick cores are soaked in a glue like mixture. The sticks are then spread apart while incense powder is repeated applied over the sticks to form larger diameter cored incense sticks.
Compression: A machine presses the incense powder around a core. This process allows for much more rapid and large scale production of cored incense sticks.
e. Types of Direct Burning Incense
Cored Stick Incense: These are the incense you are likely to see. They are composed of a bamboo or sandalwood core and come in several varieties including fluxo and joss.
Galoka – Sandalwood Cored Incense Stick
Solid Stick Incense: Solid stick incense are incense where there is no bamboo core. Instead the combustible material is mixed with the plant material and shaped into a stick. They come in several varieties including Tibetan incense, simpoi, and senko sticks.
Ancient – Tibetan Himalayan Spice Incense
Dhoop: Dhoop is similar to solid stick incense in that it does not contain a bamboo core. The difference though depends on the shape the incense mixture is molded into. It can be formed into short rods, cones, coils, or long solid stick incense. Depending on their shape they may be referred to as dhoop, cone incense, solid stick incense, Tibetan incense, coil incense, and so on.
Auroshikha – Purity Jasmine Cone Incense
Laxmi – Premium Dhoop
Rope Incense: The incense mixture is rolled into paper sheets which are then rolled into ropes. The thicker end is referred to as the bight and is meant to be placed into sand or stones to hold the rope up. The thinner end is the end that is burned.
Staya Sai Baba – Tibetan Rope Incense
Smudges: Some may not consider smudges to be necessarily incense. However, burning smudges releases aromatic scents and we include it here for comparison. Smudges are generally dried sage or other herbs that are minimally processed. They are generally wrapped with rope to make handling easier. Smudging is typically associated with Native American culture but the burning of herbs has been used throughout the world.
Pure Chakra – Black Sage Smudge
f. Types of Indirect Burning Incense
Powders: May be made of several different materials, powder incense are placed on a heading source where they burn rapidly and release a potent aroma.
Resins: Resins are a bit more granular. Because of their size it is much easier to see the different components of the mixture. They burn much slower than powders given a gradual release their scent.
Pastes: Pastes are powders or other granulated organic material that is blended with a liquid and molded. The come in different forms depending on where they are produced including Bukhoor and Neriko.
g. Common Types of Incense By Region
Arabian: Bakhoor is a type of indirect burning incent molded into different shapes and burned using a Mabkhara. Mabkhara are usually made of metal with intricate designs and require charcoal as the heat source.
Indian: Agarbathi or Joss sticks are a type of cored incense stick made using the paste rolled technique. The majority of incense sticks in India are hand rolled. Masala sticks are similar to Agarbathi incense but are more native to southern India and contain several ingredients mixed together. Durbar sticks are similar as well but softer than Masala and Agarbathi incense. Champa sticks are also similar but use nagkeshar and magnolia in their production. Fluxo incense is also popular in India, uses a wide variety of ingredients, and much more pungent.
Japan: Senko sticks are solid stick incense. They are formed into thin long sticks with a short burn time.
Tibetan: Tibetan incense are a type of dhoop/solid stick incense made using the extrusion technique whether it be by hand or machine. They are usually much thicker than traditional stick incense and produce a more earthy scent. Simpoi sticks are also Tibetan in origin but primarily based on Deodar Cedar.
h. Incense Holders & Burners
Bamboo Incense Trays: The most popular incense burner. It is a flat piece of bamboo that is curved at one end. The curved end will have a small hole where an incent may be placed and held up as it burns. These types of trays work well for cored and thin solid stick incense.
Pure Chakra – Bamboo Incense Tray
Box Incense Burners: Box incense burners are long and rectangular in shape. They usually come with a lid and may be composed of either wood or ceramic. To prevent fires and the box itself, burners should come with a piece of heat resistant fabric. When burning sticks in a box burner, some have a small hole where the stick is inserted whereas others do not and you simply lay the stick flat in the incense box. Box burners are perfect for burning cored and solid stick incense.
Pure Chakra – Box Incense Burner
Cone Incense Burner: These come in all types of designs and sizes. Some are made of ceramic and others are made of metal. They are used for incense that burn through such as cones incense.
Bowl Incense Burners: Bowl burners are usually made of ceramic to prevent heat from dispersing outside the bowl. Bowls are versatile. They may be filled with sand or pebbles to hold up stick incense. Bowls may also be used to burn rope incense, cone incense, and smudges (smudge bowels) with sand used to protect the base of the bowl.
Pure Chakra – Om Bowl Incense Burner
Coil Incense Burners: Coil incense cannot burn well when placed on hard, flat surfaces. Coil incense need to be raised off the ground to burn properly. You may find metal or ceramic burners. They will usually come with a triangulated metal that helps raise the coil.
Pure Chakra – Tree of Life Coil Incense Burner
Backflow Burners: Usually made from ceramics, they have holes throughout allowing the smoke from the incense to accumulate and disperse within the burner. This creates special effects with the smoke such as appearing like flowing water. Most are designed to work with cone incense.

90,000 Incense smells like cancer – Gazeta.Ru
Incense sticks – whether lotus, lavender, bergamot, jasmine, or even frankincense – significantly increase the risk of upper respiratory cancer. So the penetration of the culture of incense burning, widespread in Asia, to the West can be considered a kind of revenge of the East for the smoking of tobacco that came here from Europe.
Incense sticks are, as a rule, a thin sliver of bamboo, on which a mixture of vegetable chips and oils is stuck.It has long been shown that when they burn, quite a lot of carcinogenic substances are released; Scientists have especially pointed out the abundance of polyaromatic hydrocarbons in this cocktail, thanks in large part to which the sticks perform their main function.
It is not so important for the respiratory tract what kind of smoke you inhale – a dirty cigarette or an almost sacred aroma of smoking incense for adherents of many religions. Therefore, epidemiologists and oncologists have previously tried to understand whether incense, like cigarettes, increases the risk of lung cancer.The results of these studies have so far been not very confident – probably because the compared samples in them were not large enough. In addition, they paid increased attention to the lungs – and, as it has now become clear, in vain.
Work Eppe Friborg of the Danish State Serum Institute in Copenhagen and his colleagues, accepted for publication in the October issue of the prestigious journal Cancer ( permalink ), does not have these shortcomings. The patient cohort consisted of more than 60,000 people – ethnic Chinese living in Singapore, aged 45 to 74, who did not have cancer at the time of the start of the research.In 1993, they underwent a thorough examination and spoke in detail about their everyday life.
Scientists have been monitoring their health for 5 years. During this time, 861 patients developed lung cancer, and 325 cases of upper respiratory tract tumors were recorded. In 1998, Friborg and his team drew the line under the work and began to analyze the data obtained.
As it turned out, the more the patient used incense sticks in his life, the greater the risk of developing upper respiratory tract cancer.The statistical significance of the result is 99.6%. For example, the incidence of squamous carcinomas in those who like to burn incense is almost double.
True, as for cancer of the lungs itself, as well as of the throat and oral cavity, here the difference in the incidence of cancer (also not in favor of those who burn incense sticks) scientists considered statistically insignificant.
Scientists have separately traced the effect of burning incense on smokers and people free from this bad habit.In both cases, incense had a negative effect on health. At the same time, for non-smokers, the effect was much stronger.
The authors of the study note that the same incense sticks are used not only by the Chinese. Smoldering “splinters” can be seen in the homes of representatives of other ethnic groups, in the temples of Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. More and more, this culture penetrates the West, including Russia.
Given the widespread use of sticks and the fact that people are often completely unwittingly exposed to the harmful effects of fragrant smoke, Friborg and his colleagues urge to listen to the results of their work and draw the correct epidemiological conclusions from it.
They also urge to find out which of the sticks is the least harmful. Hopefully, they are the least “fragrant”.
How to burn incense sticks correctly
What incense sticks are for and how to use them correctly.
Aromatherapy is an ancient science that studies the effect of incense on the human body, is used to combat bad mood, stress, skin diseases and even cellulite. Such procedures were used in ancient Egypt and Rome.
In the modern world, incense sticks are the most convenient and affordable way of incense. For the manufacture of such sticks, aromatic oils are used, which are impregnated with wood chips. Incense sticks made from charcoal are black in color. When smoldering, the smell of the aroma filler spreads. And in beige incense sticks, an oil base is used, the aroma of which will wriggle when burning.
When choosing them, you should pay attention to its quality.The filler should be exclusively natural, because synthetics do not carry a pleasant smell, and even more so they do not have soothing properties.
Oil incense sticks are able to improve the functioning of the nervous and cardiovascular systems. It also increases the overall tone and performance of the body. Inhaling aromatic oils increases appetite and improves sleep.

Incense – a yogi’s best friend, or an enemy of health?
You smoke the leaves of a tangerine tree, as if you are looking into the distance from the top of a mountain in autumn.
You smoke osmanthus: it is as if you are contemplating the writing of ancient books, and the laws of the ancients appear before your eyes by themselves.
Dong Yue – The Book of Incense, 17th century
Incense came to yoga from Hinduism, where they are burned to this day during religious rituals (yagyas and pujas) – and this is not surprising, because yoga is a part of Indian culture, just like religion. Many yogis use incense to appeal to patrons, egregors of practice – the deities of the Indian pantheon.But in fact, incense is not an exclusively Indian thing, it is also used in other religions of the world: Christianity (incense is the oldest incense) and Buddhism, for example.
In general, incense probably existed before all religions – after all, the fragrant (or not so) smoke of a fire from different “sticks” was a part of the life of a primitive and later primitive man. Later, smoke – including narcotic plants, but not only – was used in shamanism. Gradually, religions almost everywhere supplanted paganism and shamanism, but… the use of fragrant smoke remains! What is so interesting about it that people have been doing it for thousands of years, like yoga?
In fact, they are burning incense sticks (including Indian and Tibetan) and not even religious people at all! – after all, they simply, objectively speaking, smell nice and so help to create a pleasant atmosphere of peace and joy in the room. So, on the other hand, incense is also an air fragrance , cheap and easy to use – but more or less natural and harmless? – it is necessary to watch.
If you “dig” a little deeper, then incense is not just a full house of fragrant smoke and a little self-hypnosis “for calmness and success in business”: after all, incense often contains (presumably) natural substances that are really useful (or, if you are unlucky – harmful) to health. Incense has long been widely and successfully used in Ayurveda, traditional Chinese, Tibetan and other types of ancient medicine .But the use of incense – which is included, for example, in the compulsory course of a monk from Shao Lin! – study for YEARS, under the guidance of an experienced mentor, doctor … Not our case, right? Therefore, let’s leave aside for a moment the traditions of Indian Purna Yoga (where it is difficult without sticks for ritual reasons), because the question of the benefits or harms of the components of the “stink stick” from the point of view of health comes to the fore.
First, of course, the “bad news”!
- As far as possible, avoid inhaling the smoke of “chemical” incense, which is widely used in India, i.because they smell strong, powerful, and – there, in Asia itself – ridiculously cheap. Often these “sticks” have lurid, tastelessly designed packaging and sometimes unusual names that would be more suitable for a toilet air freshener (“brandy”, “coffee with milk”, “sea surf”, etc.). Such sticks contain not only the “stick” itself – a wooden rod, the smoke from the combustion of which contains the same substances as the firewood in the stove (including CO2), but also artificially synthesized substances, a poison for our body.These sticks usually have “heavy” aromas, if you try different incense, gradually you are likely to give up these. If your goal is not to drown out the smell of cow dung and rotting debris from the street, as is often the case in India, then is it worth using “heavy artillery”? Having the Evian mineral water on hand, are you unlikely to drink the bright yellow Buratino? Although, the taste and color. (IN POSITIVE: Usually expensive and “branded” (Sai Baba ashram, Auroville, etc.) Indian, as well as Tibetan (according to Tibetan medicine, t.e. 100% from natural ingredients), Nepalese (sang and cheaper “Tibetan” sticks) and Chinese (baseless) sticks and spirals.)
- Scientists have found that too much smoke, even natural smoke, in a room is definitely harmful. Usually there is a rule – no more than 3 sticks per room, but for some chemical incense this will not work – even 1 “super stick” can “stink” the entire hall and literally choke the trainees. However, such moments are usually determined quickly by sensations.And from the point of view of “chemistry”, the smoke of cheap incense can contain polyaromatic hydrocarbons, carbonyl compounds, toluene and benzene – all of which, with prolonged exposure, can cause cancer. In general, follow a simple rule: if the smell begins to “press on the brain” – it’s time to “turn off” the stick, or even completely abandon the use of this type of incense, at least indoors. (POSITIVE: Many sticks, even “super-smelly” indoors, are perceived much better in the fresh air.They can be burned safely when practicing outdoors.)
- If you use (especially Indian) incense without measure, then the whole room “stinks” of them for a long time. The author of these lines “at one time” smelled so much of his apartment that the smell of “India” was still heard from the entrance to the staircase (“somewhere here is a yogi’s apartment” – perhaps other residents might have thought). Do you want all your clothes and soft furnishings to smell like an Indian flea market? You decide. (POSITIVE: If you smell strongly of exotic incense, other yogis will recognize you a mile away and praise you for your “pleasant aura”!)
Benefits of incense – not less significant:
- Some incense has a weak psychosomatic effect – i.e.That is, are able to unobtrusively regulate the state of : invigorate, calm, or promote concentration. This is important and beneficial for any yoga practice! Such incense, of course, is not addictive in the medical sense. That is, it is a safe way to modulate your state the way you want: for example, in the morning “burn lemon sticks” to invigorate, and in the evening – relax under the scent of patchouli, create a romantic mood with a sandal or rose, or meditate “on a juniper wave. “.This is normal and not dangerous (as long as the sticks are soaked in natural aromatic oils and not synthetic fragrances!). Examples of beneficial, natural ingredients in incense: sandalwood, lavender, bergamot, jasmine, saffron, juniper, sweetgrass, lemongrass, citrus aroma. oils, wood oils (fir, pine, cedar), and others.
- Correctly selected incense harmonizes vital energy (prana or “qi”) and through this health in general: fill up the missing or, conversely, remove the excess of some energies, manifestations, tendencies in the human body.And it, as we know from yoga, is “multi-layered”, has not only a dense physical, but also a more delicate “pranic” “layer”, which also responds to the components of natural incense. So is yoga practice! – and any other influences: information, food, drinks, and medicines! In this aspect, incense is a medicine – or poison if you pick it up and use it incorrectly. Everything is good, not only in moderation, but also in due time: for example, with a cold, some “sticks” are good, in the heat – others, with depression – the third, and if you need to calm the mind – the fourth, and so on.In the East (Tibet, China, India, Nepal, Bhutan, etc.), entire branches of medical science have been created since ancient times, dedicated specifically to treatment with incense.
Evgeniya Korsakova, specialist in external procedures of Tibetan medicine, student of Dr. Phuntsog Wangmo, Geshe Rinchen Tenzin, Dr. Nida Chenantsang:
“In Tibetan medicine, medicinal compositions or their components are often used as incense, which the patient takes orally.This is believed to enhance the impact on the disease. The most famous of these is Agar 31. This Tibetan healing incense consists of 31 herbal ingredients collected from the Himalayan region. The main one is Akvalaria aloha, which is widely used in Tibetan medicine. The incense is made by hand in a traditional way in strict accordance with the Tibetan Medical Tantra. Includes scarlet, flowers of various herbs, saffron, red and white sandalwood, glanders resin and others. It has a positive effect on: pain in the upper body; dry mouth and tongue, rapid breathing, irritability, depression and insomnia, muscular or nervous stiffness, tightness of the limbs, pain in the waist, hips, bones and joints arising from a nervous disorder.Directions for use: light one stick and inhale its smoke for a few seconds, then switch to normal use. In other words, if you are tired, stressed, had a hard day at work, come home in the evening light Agar 31 on a stick, inhale its aroma 2-3 times, and you will feel how your fatigue and stress dissolve … “
Thus, we see that properly selected incense perfectly complements the practice of yoga and enhances its beneficial and harmonizing effects!
And, finally, nobody canceled the “Pavlov’s dog reflex”. .. Many yogis noticed that as soon as you light your favorite “stink stick” (any, even the most harmful!), You get up (or sit down) on the mat – so the practice will immediately “go”, but this is the main thing for us … Regular and vigorous practice is a matter of habit, it is a fact – and incense can be the starting point, the “switch-on button” of this good habit. But, as in other techniques, it is good not to be lazy in using sticks, to understand this issue, and to do everything right – for health and success in Yoga!

The plant base of the fragrance carrier – leaves, flowers, bark, stems, branches, roots – after washing and preliminary drying, is ground to a very fine fraction.

An amazing property of natural aromatic compounds is their low volatility.You can experiment yourself: dry the leaves of geranium, currant, laurel, mandarin peels between the pages of the book. Once completely dry and stored for many years, set them on fire and make sure they still exude the appropriate fragrances.
In incense sticks and cones, aromatic elements – essential oils – are located inside the resin and gum corpuscles of plants, which the sticks are filled with. Essential oils have high volatility – volatility. But enclosed in the resin and gum of plants, they are stored for years and begin to give off their aroma when heated, – at the moment of smoldering (burning) a stick or cone.
Why is the price of Nippon Kodo incense higher than the famous sticks made in India, China, Laos?
This is due to the fact that most of the Nippon Kodo incense is made in factories geographically located in one of the most “expensive” countries in the world – in Japan.
It should be added that at Nippon Kodo enterprises, about half of the technological operations (collection, sorting, rejection of raw materials, quality control of the finished product and some others) are performed manually due to the impossibility of automation. By the way, many fragrances contain rare and initially very expensive ingredients.
Why are your chopsticks shorter than Indian ones?
Despite its small size, Nippon Kodo incense has a burning time – the time the stick smolders, giving off its aroma – up to 30 minutes.
This is enough to fill the room with your favorite scent. Even if the room has a large area, high ceilings and good air flow from the outside.
Your incense smokes less than the rest.Why?
Many manufacturers use a less expensive technology for making incense sticks – sticking incense particles on a wooden rod. It is he who, when burned during smoking, emits a large amount of smoke. Nippon Kodo incense does not have a wooden base. Therefore, there is no soot and significantly less smoke.
Can Japanese natural incense be used if there are small children in the house?
If there are small children at home, then it is not only possible to use incense, but sometimes it is necessary, as the smells often soothe the little ones. And also many Nippon Kodo fragrances have antiviral and bactericidal properties. For example, cedar, pine are used for respiratory diseases.
It must be remembered that each organism is individual. What is suitable for one child is not needed at all for another. Here we are talking about individual intolerance to ingredients.
Japanese fragrances Nippon Kodo are hypoallergenic and do not cause allergic reactions in children and adults.
Could they cause allergies in pregnant women?
We recommend that pregnant women consult a physician before using any of any incense.
What if I can hardly distinguish smells?
To take care of the nose – to cure. It is important. Our sense of smell affects the ability to interact with the outside world, receiving from it a block of multifaceted information, including aromatic information. It is not for nothing that our memory is arranged in such a way that we remember smells many times better than visual images, numbers, names of people or sounds.
What kind of incense did the Japanese samurai use?
In the literature you can find descriptions where the warriors of Japan used the aromas of vetiver and aloe to strengthen the spirit.
How is stick incense different from cones?
Cones have a large smoldering area, unlike sticks. Therefore, they emit a more intense aroma in less time. Many consumers like it. Try it!
Can aromas make customers more compliant in a store, encourage them to make more purchases?
If your store is a grocery store, then smells that are typical for products are best suited for this.For example, the aroma of freshly baked bread works without a miss.
If you decide to use aromas in order to increase the compliance of customers in stores for the spiritual development of personality, interior and decorative goods, you can use aromas for their intended purpose: coffee, cinnamon, chocolate, rosemary, mint, mandarin, sandalwood and many others.

Incense sticks are the most common type of incense due to its low price and strong spicy smell (use of aroma fillers).Typically, the stem of the incense stick is a splinter of bamboo. A base is applied to it (a mixture of fine wood chips, crushed plants, coal powder), which is impregnated with an aroma filler. In the manufacture of expensive incense sticks, natural essential oils are used.
When used as a base of crushed plants (masala), the sticks can be from light beige to dark brown. When such sticks are burned, the smell of plants is mixed with the smell of the aroma filler. Charcoal incense sticks are black in color and smell like aroma fillers when burned. It must be remembered that the quality of the incense does not depend on the color. The main thing is the base and aroma fillings.
Bamboo base may cause allergies in some people. In this case, you should use non-base incense, they are brittle, but exude a pure aroma. Burning sticks on a bamboo base distort the aroma of incense. Experts do not recommend burning sticks on a bamboo base before bedtime – when burning, substances that can disrupt sleep are released.
Less common are cone-shaped and “plasticine” incense. Cone-shaped incense is made from a mixture of herbs with or without a small amount of juniper or fir resin. Cone-shaped incense is used for fumigating large rooms, because when burning, the cones emit a very strong aroma. The cones can be of a natural natural color or they can be colored.
“Plasticine” incense is based on resins, a mixture of honey (wax) and ghee (very rarely a chemical base is used in the production of such incense). “Plasticine” incense is very popular in India – it does not require a stand, it can be stuck anywhere. In the process of burning, such incense emit a very rich aroma and smoke strongly. Suitable for fumigating large areas.

A real magic wand must be exclusive and individual! Since she herself chooses her own, so to speak, owner and copyright holder. It acts as a conduit for the energy of magic and wonder.
There are few rules, but they are. Mr. Ollivander confirms!
First, the stick must be natural, i.e. made of wood. It must be chosen in the forest, as city trees are weak in terms of the vitality of the tree.Such trees have a broken connection with the elements.
It is necessary to go to the forest or park for a twig with a positive attitude and complete harmony in the soul. At this moment, you should have a desire to merge with nature. Also time your hike and wand making with the waxing moon phase.
In addition, the tree must itself give you the twig. To do this, you must mentally sincerely make a request to the tree.
Then you have to take a twig in your hand and feel exactly your wand.Close your eyes and listen to your feelings: has the twig become, as it were, an extension of your hand …
Do not forget to thank the tree and give it some of your positive energy. In this way, the wand will maintain its connection with the forest and generate its energy in itself.
Since ancient times it was believed that elder and hazel are endowed with magical qualities
Cut the branch carefully and quickly with a sharp knife. The stick should be the same length as your middle finger on your hand to your elbow.It is better to hide the selected twig from prying eyes and bring it home. In the house, she should be saturated with your energy.
Making a stick is a whole sacrament, so it should be hidden from prying eyes.
Remove bark and twigs of your choice. Sand gently to keep your wand smooth. In this case, it is necessary to pronounce magic words to yourself:
“I conjure you, O almighty branch (oak, maple, etc.)by the forces of four elements – Earth, Air, Water and Fire! Take in their strength and power. Be my faithful assistant! ”

Ribbons of different colors can be combined. Secure the ends of the tapes neatly with glue.
We cut out stars from felt or felt paper that match the color of our stick.
We attach it all to our stick.
The wand is ready, you can go and conjure!
The simplest magic wand – made of paper
The magic wand can also be made from a simple A4 sheet of paper.In addition to this, you will need: PVA glue, a glue gun, scissors, acrylic paints, a brush and glitter.
We take an A4 album sheet, coat about 2/3 of it with PVA glue and begin to carefully twist it into a tube diagonally. In this case, the tube should acquire a conical shape, tapering towards the bottom. We give our future stick to dry and cut off the excess edges with scissors.
Take the glue gun and fill the void of the stick from the wider edge. Instead of glue, you can fill it with cotton or paper, which is more convenient for you to work with.
After the glue has frozen, you can start decorating the stick. To do this, we use a glue gun to make monograms and intricate patterns on a stick. We are waiting for the pattern to dry.

The symbol “Straight stick” or “pipe” is often used in programming and mathematics. It is not difficult to write it by hand, but when typing on a computer, difficulties are not excluded. The point is that the mentioned element is a special sign. And it’s not always easy to print.Novice PC users simply do not know how to achieve the desired result. Next, we will try to consider all possible ways to print a pipe.
Keyboard Help – Method 1
How to place the straight stick symbol? There are a lot of options for the development of events. Each user can independently choose the order of actions. Therefore, further we will study all possible methods of printing the “pipe”.
Let’s start with the simplest. It is about using the keyboard of a computer or laptop.Some special characters are located on the keypad of the device, which greatly simplifies the process of typing them. Pipe is no exception. The main thing is to know how and where to find the appropriate sign.
How do I put the straight stick symbol on the keyboard? For example, you can use the following guide:
- Switch the keyboard layout to English using any known method.
- Find the key with the “pipe” icon. On computer keyboards, it is usually located between Enter and Backspace, on laptops – to the left of “Enter”.Typically, the user will see a variety of dash symbols on the corresponding control.
- Press “Shift”.
- While holding down the key, press the button with the “pipe” picture.
Done! A straight stick will appear in one place or another in the text editor. This is one of the simplest and most common spellings.
Keypad to help – method 2
The symbol “Straight stick” can be used differently in the text. The next option also involves the use of a keyboard panel.
The previously suggested instruction requires switching keyboard layouts. This is not always convenient. Users can put a “pipe” in the text without changing the language layout.
How to do this? Required:
- Position the cursor where you want to insert the special character.
- Make sure that the keyboard panel allows you to type in Russian.
- Press down on the control labeled Shift.
- Find and press the button with the “pipe”.It is usually located at the bottom of the keyboard, to the right of the Shift and to the left of the letter Z.
- Release the pressed keys.
It’s done. Now it’s clear where the straight stick symbol is on the keyboard. These are far from all the ways of printing the mentioned special sign. What else can you do to get the desired result?
Keypad to help – method 3
It is worth noting that Apple’s computers and laptops have slightly changed keyboard.And this gives a lot of trouble to novice PC users. Printing special characters becomes even more difficult.
“Pipe” can also be delivered on MacBook. But how to do that? The following type of manual will help to cope with this task:
- Switch the keyboard panel layout to “English”.
- Find the button with the “pipe” icon. On MacBooks, the key with the letter “E” is responsible for printing this character. It is located near Enter.
- Press the key combination Shift + E.
Done! Now the user can install the pipe on the MacBook without any problems. The straight stick symbol is printed differently. And keyboard shortcuts aren’t everything. You can get out of the situation in various ways.
Windows Character Map
For example, some users use the Copy and Paste operations. In order for the “pipe” symbol to appear in the text, you can use a specialized Windows table.It is called the “Symbol Table”. Here the user will be able to see all the special characters.
- Go to “Start” – “All Programs”.
- Find the “Standard” folder and open it.
- Look into the “Service” section.
- Click on the inscription “Symbol table”.
- Find the “pipe” in the menu that appears, and then double-click on it with the left mouse button.
- Select the straight stick symbol at the bottom of the window, press Ctrl + C.
Now you can open your text and insert a character using Ctrl + V.Fast, simple and very convenient.
Important: in the same way, you can copy the character from the ready-made text, and then paste it into your document.
Word Paste Special
How to place the straight stick symbol? Some people use a special “Vord” insert. The corresponding menu item duplicates the “Table of symbols”, but it works mainly in a text editor.
The Word Paste Special looks like this:
- Go to a text editor and set the cursor to the desired location.
- Click on the menu item “Insert” – “Symbol”.
- Find a vertical straight stick in the window that appears.
- Double click on the corresponding picture.
But that’s not all! The symbol of a straight stick on a computer is proposed to be printed in different ways. Let’s consider two more approaches to solving the problem.
For example, advanced users use ASCII codes. With their help, printing special characters is a minimum of hassle.
In our case, you will have to adhere to the following algorithm of actions:
- Open the “Word” and put the pointer in the place of the intended seal.
- Press Alt. You can use the button on the left or right side of the keyboard panel.
- Dial 124 while holding Alt.
- Release the keys.
At this stage, the action ends. Now it is clear how you can insert a straight stick character using ASCII codes.
Unicode and characters
The last scenario is the use of “Unicode”. Not everyone knows how to use this technique.
The step-by-step process looks like this:
- Type in the text where the “pipe” should be, the combination x7C.
- Press Alt + X at the same time.
- Release the keys.
How to put a straight vertical stick on the keyboard?
Looking at the keyboard of which
On a Samsung Android tablet 4.2 I have such a stick
In icon layout, page 2
To call the keyboard, put the cursor in the text input field, a pop-up keyboard will appear, you need to switch to the symbols tab, and then open the second page of symbols
On my laptop, the keys are located a little differently. The required straight stick is located along with the designation quot; Slash / quot; above the Enter key.
For a straight stick, an English keyboard layout and simultaneous pressing of the Shift key are required.
To put the quot; quot; icon on the screen using the keyboard or quot; vertical stickquot; using a regular computer keyboard, you first need to translate the font into English using the Shift and Ctrl keys. After these manipulations, press the / key.
In order to put a sign using a standard computer keyboard, you need to translate it to the English layout by pressing the key combination provided for this computer in the settings – it can be Shift + Alt or Shift + Ctrl.Then press the / key to the right of the E key on the keyboard in combination with Shift.
In order to put a straight vertical stick when typing on a computer, you first need to translate the keyboard to the English layout, and you need to use a combination of two keys provided by your computer. It can be Shift + Ctrl or Sift + Alt.
After that, we find the / key on the keyboard (I have it to the right of the key with the letter quot; Equot;, press it simultaneously with the Shift key, and you will get this quot; quot; character.
I don’t know how anyone has it, but I have this key on the keyboard right above the quot; Enterquot; button. And to put quot; / quot; – an inclined stick you need to hold down the button on the keyboard quot; Shiftquot;. But in order to put exactly the vertical stick, you need to translate the keyboard to the priority of the English language. If it is difficult for someone to do this, then you can simply click on the icon at the bottom of the screen quot; RUquot; and change the language there by choosing English instead of Russian. And then also holding down the quot; Shiftquot; press the button with chopsticks – quot; quot;.
In order to put a straight vertical stick on the keyboard, it is enough to do these very simple steps:
firstly, make the English layout, and for this you need to press keys such as Shift, Alt
secondly, you need to press the stick with the key, but you need to hold down the Shift key
There is one more way, in my opinion it is much faster, and besides, the stick key is not present on every keyboard.I do so. We will need an English layout and on it, I choose an uppercase letter
l quot; l
”. On my keyboard, I can only do this, since I do not have another key.
A straight vertical stick on the keyboard can be typed like this:
1. We turn to the English layout, for this we type the key combination quot; Shift quot; + quot; Alt quot; or quot; Shift quot; + quot; Ctrl quot;, you can also do this in the taskbar.
I have never used this sign, but it is easy to find it. It is located on the keyboard above the ENTER key and below the BACKSPACE key. (at least on my netbook).
First you need to switch to English. To do this, simultaneously press the SHIFT + ALT keys. Then simultaneously press SHIFT and the key with this sign, we get – quot; quot;.
