Samithu (wood used for homam) : erukku, purasu, karungali, naaurivi, arasu, athi, vanni, arugan grass etc.

Teak wood is normally not used.

For those who are doing self enquiry they may be having yagna in which all the thoughts are the SAMITHU. The question will be (who I am ) will be the ghee falls into the fire of yagna.

The ghee and the samithu all get burn, the prasam is the thoughtless stage, which gives the enlightenment.
