The main objective of doing havans in ancient times was to achieve spiritual enlightenment, mental serenity, and environmental cleanliness. As time passed and the practice of conducting havans declined, the Atharva Veda and Rig Veda introduced the age of lighting agarbattis began (incense sticks). According to Vedic Times, the primary reason for advocating the usage of incense sticks was to eliminate undesirable aromas and to provide a nice fragrance. Later, it got interwoven into the Ayurvedic medical system and religious activities also. People began to transition from havans to agarbattis for daily prayers to God since incense sticks began to impart the same essence of purity as havans. Gradually, the significance of agarbattis grew, and the practice of burning incense sticks became embedded in our society.
