Dhoop sticks are a type of incense made by rolling a mixture of fragrant materials, such as herbs, spices, and resins, into a thin bamboo stick. They are commonly used in Hindu, Buddhist, and other religious ceremonies, as well as for meditation and aromatherapy. Dhoop sticks are usually thicker and heavier than traditional incense sticks and produce a denser smoke when burned. They come in a variety of fragrances, including sandalwood, jasmine, rose, and lavender, among others. Dhoop sticks are often considered more potent and longer-lasting than regular incense sticks, and are believed to have spiritual and therapeutic benefits.
