The stepped structure of OMNI is designed to stagger the burning period, rather than burn through the complete stick.
The segments reduce oxygen flow to slow down the ritual, extinguishing the ember at random intervals.This delayed burning divides up the burning periods into intervals for each stick reducing the amount of smoke and particles in the breathing air.Note: If you want your incense to burn all the way through each time without exception, this is not the object you are looking for.
