It’s the time of the year when we all start preparing our home for Diwali, the ‘Festival of Lights’. Cleaning and decorating our homes, preparing sweets, shopping for clothes, gifts and firecrackers are some highlights of this joyous festival which is celebrated by millions across India. However, Diwali is also a festival which raises huge environmental concerns. So, if you don’t want your love for nature to mar your celebrations, why not take the eco-friendly route and enjoy a fun-filled festive season?
During our forefathers’ times, the spirit of Diwali was centered on decorating the house with flowers, lighting diyas, feasting on delicious sweets and sharing the joy with loved ones. There were no harmful firecrackers, no plastic lanterns and no air pollution.This Diwali, let us travel back to those glorious years where Diwali was about spending time with family and friends, and appreciating what life and nature has to offer.
If you are joining us in an environment friendly celebration this year, these eco-friendly must-haves in a Diwali home will help you add a festive touch to your home without harming Mother Nature!
Decorative Diyas and Lamps
Diwali gets its name from the Diwali Diyas or Lamps that are lit in homes as a mark of celebrating Rama’s return from 14 years of exile. In olden times, diyas were made of clay and were available in simple designs. Today, you get a variety of decorative lamps in different shapes and materials that can be used to add colour and light to your homes. This year, go back to traditional diyas made of clay and decorate your homes with Natural Mantra’straditional Omved Eco Diyas.
Torans (Door Hangings)
Diwali is a time when relatives and friends visit your home to celebrate the joyous festival with your family. To welcome them, place some beautiful and colourful torans at the door. Diwali Torans are handcrafted and come embellished with embroidery, bells, beads, mirror, shells and images of Lord Ganesha. This Diwali, add a welcoming touch to your home with Natural Mantra’s Beej Mantra Toran.
Sculptures and Idols
Ganesh Puja is an integral part of Diwali celebrations. Although brass and silver Ganesh idols are the most popular among devotees, eco-friendly idols are becoming a rage among the environmentally conscious population. Bring home Natural Mantra’s Sriphala Ganesh and let Lord Ganesh shower happiness and prosperity on you and your family.
Pooja Set/Worship items
Every family conducts the daily Diwali pooja to bring prosperity to their homes and happiness to their loved ones. Bronze pooja sets are the most popular among Hindu’s as Vedic traditions believes that bronze is a tridoshic metal and has a much higher capacity to absorb and transmit sattvikta (the quality of sattva) when compared to other metals. We just love the Omved Bronze Vedic Pooja Set, a beautiful and complete pooja accessory to adore your ‘poojaghar’!
Agarbattis, also known as incense or prayer sticks, are used in temples and as domestic offerings by millions across the world. The emanating fumes with their aromatic properties help purify the environment and have a vitalizing and invigorating effect on individuals along with being a natural disinfectant. Light Natural Mantra’s Craft House – Cosmos (fire variety) agarbattis to freshen the air and soothe your senses this festive season.
