How To Make Your Own Dhoof?

Recommended Posts


Does anyone make or know how to make their own dhoof (incense sticks)? If you do please share on this thread – along with results.

I came across the following ‘recipe’ in Sant Jagjit Singh Ji’s book – Society of Saints which can be downloaded from the following: http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CBsQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.boss-uk.org%2Farticles%2Fpdf%2FTheSocietyofSaintsv3.pdf&ei=A8n0TZedGs6WhQfmgojjBg&usg=AFQjCNFJE5bfzdxJmaQf1Hv7uDgcSE7kjg

“Kastoori – 2 rati

Kesar (Saffron) – 4 mashe

Mushkapoor – 3 mashe

Suche Moti – 1 rati

Butter of cow’s milk – 3 shatank

Sugar (unrefined) – 2 shatank

Javiti, Desi Joon, InderJoon – 1 tola

Shal Shalira, Kapoor-kachari – 1 tola each

Whitesandalwood, Red sandalwood – 1 tola each

Small cardamom, bi cardamom – 1 tola each

Dried coconut, fresh coconut, almonds - 2 tola each

Raisins, special essence stick - 2 tola each

Black aniseed, white aniseed, Nagar motha – 2 tola each

Basmati rice, scent: Rose Brahmi (should be fragrant) – 3 tola/1 tola

Phool Dhava, Loh Bhan - 1 tola each

Kachoor uch, cinnamon – 1 tola each

These should be mixed together with sugar and butter to prepare the essence sticks.”

I think I’m going to need mum’s help with quantities, sourcing and shopping for the above.

vaheguru ji ka khalsa vaheguru ji ki fateh

On Ang 525 Bhagat Ravidaas Ji tells us how to make dhoof and mentions how we can enlist the help of our Mother.

The calf has contaminated the milk in the teats. The bumblebee has contaminated the flower, and the fish has contaminated the water.

O mother, where shall I find any offering for the Lord's worship? I cannot find any flowers worthy of the incomparable Lord.

The snakes encircle the sandalwood trees, poison and nectar dwell there together.

DUp dIp neIbydih bwsw ] kYsy pUj krih qyrI dwsw ]3]

Incense, lamps and offerings of food have become impure, so how are your servants to worship you?

qnu mnu Arpau pUj crwvau ] gur prswid inrMjnu pwvau ]4]

I dedicate and offer my mind and body to you. By Guru's Grace, I attain the immaculate Lord.

pUjw Arcw Awih n qorI ] kih rivdws kvn giq morI ]5]1]

Apart from this, I cannot offer any other worship. What will my fate be?

Bhai Gurdas Ji expands on this here: http://www.sikhitoth...?ShabadID=5837.
