Have a safe and peaceful Diwali!
How do you plan to celebrate Diwali this year? Do you plan to celebrate with crackers or without? Which lights are you using? Here are some tips to make it a safe and happy festival for you and your loved ones!
Using sesame oil or ghee in your clay diyas is best for both you and the environment. Paraffin candles and waxes release toxins and they are not the best option for lighting up your home. Banish those tea candles and go in for the time-tested diyas with cotton wicks, this Diwali. They look so romantic and so captivating. Nothing like the real thing.
Isn’t it possible to say no to crackers? Keep your children safe with green crackers and try and avoid crackers that release allergens into the air you breathe. Also, do keep your pets safe and away from the noise — their sense of hearing is far more acute than ours and that’s why they get so disturbed.
