We look for peace of mind and relief from problems during our worship. But what about the issues of mother earth? Pollution and degradation of natural resources are significant problems that our Earth faces. Human beings contribute to ecological destruction by using plastic and other products that are harmful to the environment.
Everyday products contribute to environmental degradation. For example, even the aromatic incense sticks can release harmful chemicals into the environment. Incense sticks often contain chemicals like carbon monoxide and benzene.
Other pooja Items like incense cones, oils, and lamps are often made of harmful products. So, to stop the proliferation of pollutants in our daily life, we need to switch to natural products. Amala Earth is one company that offers natural lifestyle products at the best prices.
Amala Earth products are readily available and perfect for daily use. These products are often made by rural women and specially-abled people and manufactured using straightforward and basic techniques.
No animals are harmed during the manufacturing of these products. During disposal, these natural lifestyle products merge with the environment seamlessly without releasing toxic chemicals.
Benefits of Using pooja essentials from Amala Earth
We use pooja essentials daily for peace and spirituality. The following are some benefits of using natural pooja room essentials.
Keep the indoor air clean
All our pooja essentials are safe to be used indoors. This means that these products do not leave any toxic residue that can linger in your home and impact air quality. For example, incense sticks often release residual chemicals when they are burnt. These chemicals linger indoors for a long time, causing air pollution inside your home. So, avoid this by burning our charcoal-free incense sticks, which will leave your home with a sweet scent.
Good for our health
Incense sticks release chemicals when they are burnt. These chemicals can cause a lot of health problems and allergies. Our charcoal-free incense sticks made of natural herbs like sandalwood, tulsi, lavender, and wild sage release the goodness of spices into the air. They work to calm our minds and uplift our moods without the added burden of pollution and allergies.
Safe to handle
Pooja room essentials that contain chemicals must be handled carefully to avoid contamination. You never know the elements that have gone into making the beautiful diyas or oil burners. But organic pooja essentials, like Akhand Diya and handmade tea light holders, have no such harmful chemicals. Anyone can handle them safely.
Pooja essentials made of brass and wood are aesthetically very pleasing. They give your pooja room a naturally beautiful look. They retain their appearance even after years of regular use.
Help the environment
The effects of climate change and environmental pollution are hard to ignore. However, using organic items gives you the satisfaction of having done your bit for the environment.
Easy and safe to dispose
A lot of products produce environmental pollution during disposal. Their toxic residue pollutes the air and water resources. The residue-like burnt ash left by these pooja essentials is often harmful to our plants and can contaminate our water bodies. Organic products do not harm the environment when they are disposed of.
