This set includes the five spices and garam masala used for "panch phoron," an iconic spice mix. All the essential information is in Hindi and English, allowing the product to be effortlessly identified by anyone, regardless of language barriers.

The design features ornate and delicate illustrations of each plant on the front panel that leads to the side panels, allowing for a dynamic and artistic layout that one can display. The colours reflect the spices or plant to help users identify the spice with ease. Each spice comes with an outer case that serves as both a secondary holder to ensure the box is air-tight and a design focal point in the case. The spices come in an eco-friendly paper box that is resealable and can be reused or recycled. The outer cases are natural wood that can be recycled or reused as plant pots.
