Harmala Seeds or Izband have been used since ancient times in the cultural and religious rites worldwide. According to folklore Izband smoke wards off the evil eye.Traditionally Izband seeds are placed on red hot charcoal and in Kangri, wherein they explode with small popping noise releasing a fragrant smoke. This tradition is still followed in Kashmir and in some other parts of the world believing to ward off the evil. Izband is used in every special occasion in Kashmir, be it a wedding, a happy festive gathering or a housewarming party, the fragrance of the smoke fills the ambience to kill off all the evil that there might be. Besides these cultural uses, Izband is also used to obtain a red dye that is then used to color carpets and wool.
