From a very long time candles are used to dispel darkness from one’s life. Our candles is a herbal product born out of the unique amalgamation of ancient Ayurvedic texts and modern research. The formulation used smoke as a medium to carry herbal fumes , which repel mosquitos. As the name suggests the candle provides threefold benefits:- emits light, mosquito repellent and is a herbal product(no smoke) .Keeping in view the rural areas we thought of a product which provide the people an immediate relief from mosquitoes. Nearly 40 million people die every year due to malaria, chickengunia ,etc which are caused due to the presence of mosquitoes in large numbers in rural areas, places like Lakhmipur and Golaghat in Assam, Shravasti ,Mau Aadamgarh in U.P., Pimpri in Pune are the worst hit.
