Kapur or camphor is made from tree bark through a distilling process. It is a waxy, white-coloured solid fragrant pod burnt during worship. Camphor is effervescent and very bright while burning. It is used in traditional aarti (prayer service) and has a lot of significance. Camphor is known to purify the air, provide medicinal benefits, exude a pleasant aroma, and drive negative energies away.
It holds a unique place in Hindu tradition. When lit, it burns itself out completely without leaving any trace, symbolising a union with god. Camphor represents our inherent tendencies, or ego, which keep us separate from god. When lit by the fire of knowledge, our tendencies burn out, uniting us with the divine. The heat from the fire is then taken as a blessing. Mama Handicraft Daily Puja Kit (30-Day Pack) comes with 30 pieces of camphor.DHOOP (100 g)

Lighting of dhoop usually comes after the offering of flowers to the deity.
