Dhoop batti is mainly used during ritual ceremonies like havan and all holy occasions. The scent of Dhoop batti is also strong and creates a spiritual mood.
In the market dhoop batti is available not exactly in stick form but as a bit damp paste of combustible material, somewhat similar to putting but black in colour. Dhoop batti paste is a mixture of ghee, herbs and dhoop tree extracts. These pastes are available in cones or thick sticks.
