Disease-causing Pathogenic micro-organisms present in the environment around us are responsible for various health-related problems. Airborne diseases are more compared to vector born diseases. Hence, it is the right time to think about the control measures of infectious agents in terms of preventive as well as curative measures of diseases.

The concept of Krimi (Microbes) in Ayurveda, has been used in a broader sense, it includes all organisms covering wide range of infections and infestation. To get prevention from these Krimi (Microbes), Rakshoghna Vidhi (Protection against infectious organisms) is mentioned. Dhoopana (fumigation) is one such modality. Ayurvedic literature wherein fumigation is indicated for sterilization of operation theatres as well as labor theatres and also in wound management. Dhoopana has been followed as a tradition in various religious procedures. Sterilization through fumigation may be the purpose of various traditional rituals like homa, havana etc. Rakshoghna vidhi is indicated in our classics. In this various medicinal plants were burnt on fire and the smoke generated from it used to make sterilization of different areas where chances of infections is more.
