Incenses, mosquitoes, dhoop, and other indoor combustion sources are frequently employed for aesthetic and religious purposes in a variety of indoor and outdoor contexts. Due to particulate matter exposure from inhaling the smoke produced by the combustion, there is a risk to one's health (PM). Monitoring of PM (PM10, PM2.5, and PM1) levels during the preparation, lighting, and extinguishing of incense (agarbatti and dhoop) and the use of a mosquito coil in an enclosed space. The amount of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in the exhaust and how indoor pollution affects their health.
