Copal is a natural tree resin that is between two states—it is neither a hardened resin nor sap. Copal resin comes from trees in the Buresa family, which is considered a medicinal tree to the Mayas in southern Mexico. Copal is considered the “blood” of the tree and is believed to appease the Gods when burned as a sacred offering. This resin gets its name from the Nahuatl language (the language of the Aztecs) and literally translates to ‘incense’. It is still today used by indigenous people in Mexico and Central America for spiritual cleansing and during ceremonies. Our Copal is sold in a 10 gram bag, cauldron sold separately.
Copal has a powerful crisp, clearing, sharp scent that purifies the energy in your space and in your energetic field. Copal incense is a wonderful energy tool to use during your meditations. It is linked with the crown chakra, deepening your awareness and encouraging pure thoughts. Copal also helps to strengthen the auric body, removing all energy blockages. It is particularly useful in times of stress or even for alleviating feelings of depression, because it helps you to shift your mindset. This resin is also traditionally used for clearing the body of diseases and to keep mosquitos away.
