Sandalwood paste and powder are extracted from the trunk of sandalwood tree.  It is the most common cleansing fragrance that is used in a variety of incense.

A highly prized ingredient, sandalwood rightfully enjoys the position of celebratory element in our traditions. As they say, there is nothing better than sandalwood to usher in auspicious beginnings. We’ve listed some of the benefits of sandalwood when used in our dhoops:

  • since it is woody, it burns quickly and the warm and smoky fragrance lingers for a long time after it is burnt.
  • sandalwood is known to alleviate the mood and when used as a part of aromatherapy, it helps to promote relaxation.
  • sandalwood is known to have the power to attract the positive universal energy and  when burnt, it would usher in auspiciousness and ensure an obstacle-free celebration.

Our most preferred dhoop powders, Mangal Utsav is loaded with pure sandalwood and it works beautifully to purify your home. It is blended with ingredients like myrrh, frankincense, loban and sambrani.



Frankincense has a special mention in the texts of Ayurveda. Often used in aromatherapy, it also offers a variety of health benefits; ranging from relieving anxiety, boosting immunity, inducing a sense of calm and also working as an excellent disinfectant.

Frankincense is widely used in our range of aromatherapy products. Agarbattis or incense sticks, incense cones, and dhoops when combined with frankincense work magically in many ways. We’ve listed some of the benefits of frankincense when used in our dhoops:

  • the smoldering smoke from the dhoop works as an antiseptic and disinfectant.
  • the lingering fragrance helps to cleanse the air of unhealthy airborne micro-organisms.
  • the tranquil fragrance is also known to induce a feeling of peace and relaxation.

Almost all our dhoop powders contain this wonderful herb that is also known to invoke a feeling of divinity as its fragrance spread in your living areas. Use our dhoops regularly to cleanse and purify the air in your home. 


Made from resin obtained from tree barks, myrrh when burnt on hot embers releases a smoky & sweet fragrance. It has been used for thousands of years in traditional healing therapies and also in religious and auspicious ceremonies.

Myrrh, like most of the ingredients in our range of dhoops is used to cleanse the air and promote a sense of happiness and joy. We’ve listed some of the benefits of myrrh when used in our dhoops:

  • the fragrance invokes a sense of devotion that is traditionally used to support or enhance times of prayer.
  • it supports meditation because the fragrances helps to improve focus and concentration levels.
  • it helps to cleanse the air which in turn promotes a cleaner air to breathe.

Aradhan, a powerful blend that is known to deepen the meditation and spiritual practice contains myrrh. 

Omved’s range of dhoops use pure and therapeutic grade essential oils and herbs because they contain a great quantity of prana, the vital cosmic energy that purifies and open the subtle channels providing energy to all levels of the body with the maximum vitality and effectiveness.
