The Mashaka Dhoop is blended with Ayurvedic anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal herbs and resins, traditionally used and believed to cleanse the air of unhealthy airborne micro-organisms. All the dhoops are created along the principles of panchabhoot (the five elements) principle of Ayurveda and each blend is a harmonious synergy of Seeds and fruits representing Ether, stems & and branches representing Water, roots representing Earth, flowers and buds representing Fire, and leaves representing Air. Lemongrass, Neem leaves and Loban with other select herbs blend to help you live a life free of mosquito bites, in turn helping to live a life free of many diseases. The subtle and pleasant herbal aroma of this dhoop serves as an annihilator for mosquitoes, bugs and other irritants, while being therapeutic for you. Stay safe and away from commercial mosquitto repellents that are made of chemical insecticides which poison your home. Take a breath of conscious bliss.
How to use:
- Ignite a dhoop charcoal (specially made for incense burning) by using the flame of a stove or candle. The briquette should start to crackle and glow.
Next, set the charcoal in a container on a bed of sand or place it in a dhoopdan. If you are placing it on the sand bed, then the sand layer under the charcoal should be at least 3/4-1 inch thick.
Slowly fan or blow on the tablet.Use a knife, spoon or tweezers to drop the incense onto the tablet once it starts glowing. Fan the dhoop to let the aroma spread.
The charcoal may continue to burn for upto two hours after lighting - so don't just throw it in a wastebasket. Use tweezers to extract the tablet and submerse it in water to discard if the tablet is still lit.
