Experience our Fresh Copal. Copal is a resin that has sacred properties for cleansing, clearing, purifying essence that has been used by the Mayan people for centuries. It is like the frankincense of Mexico. Copal is a name given to tree resin from the copal tree Protium copal (Burseraceae) that is particularly identified with the aromatic resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica and is burned during sacred ceremonies as incense.
Fresh, white Copal differs greatly from the hardened yellow copal. It’s like the difference between fresh fruit and dried fruit. Rock-hard yellow copal melts when burned resulting in a thick, shiny, residue which puts out the flame of the charcoal. Fresh Copal dissipates when burned which leaves just a hint of residue, along with a clear, beautiful and uplifting fragrance.
