Cup dhoop, also known as cone incense or dhoop cones, is a type of incense that is shaped like a cone and designed to be burned in special holders. These small, cone-shaped incense pieces are made by mixing natural ingredients like sandalwood, herbs, and resins with a binding agent like gum arabic, which is then shaped into cones.
When burned, cup dhoop releases a fragrant smoke that is believed to have a purifying and calming effect on the mind and body. The smoke from cup dhoop is often used in Hindu and Buddhist rituals, as well as in meditation and yoga practices, to create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
Cup dhoop is typically burned in a special holder made of metal, ceramic, or other heat-resistant materials that can hold the cone securely while it burns. The holder may have a small hole or opening at the top to allow the smoke to escape, and may also have decorative designs or symbols that are meaningful to the user.
