These diyas are individually prepared by hand, based on an age-old Ayurvedic formulation called Panchgavya that comprises of five natural elements derived from the sacred cow. i.e. Gobar (Cow dung), GauMutr (Cow Urine), Milk, Ghee and Dahi (Yogurt).
100% Organic: ZERO chemicals - No Charcoal
Eco-friendly: ZERO Carbon Emissions leaving NO carbon footprint
Air Purifier: The combination of ghee with the PanchGavya formulation, when lit, is known to release oxygen and purify the air by neutralising bad bacteria.
Mild/Pleasant Fragrance: When lit, the diya releases a mild lingering fragrance that is reminiscent of a sacred havan/ yagna and lends to a pleasant and calming ambience across the household.
100% Bio-degradable: The burnt residue of the diya serves as a fantastic compost for your plants and can also be used to wash utensils instead of nasty chemical-based products.
Natural Bug-Repellent: A fantastic alternative to chemical based repellents used widely by households today.
Making A Real Difference To the world around us:
Women Empowerment: These diyas are handmade by rural women self-help groups with whom, we work closely to provide (1) relevant training, (2) equipment and (3) raw material. Together, we shall be providing underprivileged households a much needed secondary source of income and enabling them to enjoy a better quality of life.
How about Our Cows: The economic unviability of supporting aging livestock that stop producing milk leads to cattle owners abandoning them or selling them to the slaughter house. Projects like ours that put Gobar and GauMutr to productive use, thus providing cow rearers a source of income that will help them sustain the costs associated with supporting aging cows and take care of them for their lifetime. This small yet vital act of buying our product is in a way, a small step for mankind but will go a long way in the betterment of many lives and a sustainable eco-system.
