We Indians have a knack for color and frolic in our celebrations and hence the need for diverse ingredients in our festivities is inevitable.

The vidhis associated with every pooja requires certain primary ingredients and are considered as imperative requirements for every pooja according to the traditional Hindu norms.
Hindu festivals and the poojas require compliance with every tradition in order to bring good will and fortune for the members of the household. The other prominent requirements which could arise for you during a pooja include the Prasad and diyas or earthen candles as well as incense sticks.
The use of earthen candles or diyas in a Hindu pooja ceremony indicates a sign of respect for the fire which is one of the profound sources of energy for life on earth.
The significance of fire in a pooja is also validated by the purification of sins and therefore yagnas are conducted at the majority of Hindu festivals.
The incense sticks signify the creation of an ambient atmosphere for the Gods to visit the home during the pooja and practically they indicate towards the eliminating the stench of all evil things through the scent of good.
Ghee is used as a notable ingredient in pooja, generally for the purpose of offerings as well as fuel for yagnas and the diyas. The aroma of ghee is also associated with practical outcomes of limiting the proliferation of microorganisms as well as the entry of pests into the home.
In case you are not up for yagna in your home on a festival or pooja, you can opt for long burning tealight smokeless candles and LED smokeless candles to attain the required ambiance for a pooja.
