There have been many speculations about the origination of Shankh but it is widely known that Shankh was originated during the Churning of ocean (Samudramanthan) by the Deities and Shri Vishnu held it in the form of weapon.

 When shankh is blown the positive energy, the activated one of Shri Vishnu in the universe gets attracted towards the place of worship or wherever it is blown. It is not only beneficial to the person who is blowing the shankh but also to all those who hear it.
It is believed that it kills various kinds of microscopic organisms that are otherwise harmful to humans and other living things. It is mentioned in the Varaha Purana that the gates of the temple should not be opened without blowing a conch.

The sound pleases goddess Lakshmi.

As per the vedic science, blowing shankha during puja has benefits on our lungs. This is because for blowing a shankha pure air which is rich in oxygen, reaches the lungs and impure air i.e., the air rich in carbon dioxide comes out. This makes the lungs strong and increases its capacity to hold air. Blowing shankha also cures diseases of intestines.
During puja or any religious ritual, the shankh is kept in a specific manner. The pointed portion is directed toward the deity which shows auspiciousness and respect.
