The environment has been a major concern in today’s era. The constant pollution all around has gathered the attention of many people. A clean environment that includes clean air, water, land and energy, is essential for human existence. Microbial load of the air causes various airborne diseases. Disease-causing pathogens are organisms that spread from an infected person to another through coughing, talking and sneezing – even breathing and laughing. Bearing in mind the consequences of chemical substances and with an aim to cleanse the environment, an attempt was made to utilize herbal products to cleanse the air in a particular area and to create a positive atmosphere with the help of its appreciable fragrance. Therefore, the current research focuses on the development of a natural dhoop stick, which can be effectively used for reducing the count of aeromicroflora. The formulation was developed using natural agents like cow dung, clarified butter, cow milk and certain herbs which are known traditionally for their fragrances. Cow dung has been used since time immemorial as a source of disinfection in different households [5-8]. In various religious practices such as homa/ havans, cow dung, cow ghee, cow urine, camphor, etc has been used in order to cleanse the environment and feel pleasant. With the help of this traditional knowledge, we tried to devise a method to prepare a dhoop stick having pharmacopoeial quality using various cow products and plant powders for cleansing the air. This herbal dhoop stick is prepared from extremely economical sources and has a pleasant smell. It can serve as an alternative to the usage of chemicals for disinfection of air in various areas such as households, hospitals, washrooms, etc
The Mosquito sticks are also very effective in boosting focus and concentration, which is why monks and sages across civilizations have made this an integral part of their monastery and worship places. Burning Mosquito sticks made from the Desi Indian Cow kills harmful bacteria and virus and provides an air of divine purity. Isn’t this a better and healthy way to get rid of those mosquito too rather than using chemical laden mosquito repellents that creates various breathing problems like asthma when inhaled? There are many Mosquito sticks available in the market, which are made using coal and other artificial fragrances, which do offer a soothing effect, but are harmful when inhaled, just like the insect repellents, and with kids and aging people at home, a new way to make them vulnerable to diseases is surely not what you want. So, always look for incense sticks that are made from Indian cow’s dung in the most aesthetic manner.. And because it is made using all the natural ingredients, the Mosquito sticks are free from chemicals.
