Copal | Incense
Copal is a type of resin produced from trees, particularly found in Central America. The resin is then crushed and rolled onto these incense sticks for burning.
It is believed that its magical qualities aid with the process of opening to the soul, to intuition and inspiration, it is thought to be food for the ancestors, a way of saying thank you.
The scent is very woody, very frankincense forward, slightly hypnotic, with warmer almost citrus notes.
If you like burning incense and haven't tried this one we highly recommend it.
Copal resin today is used to purify auras, spaces and objects with low or negative energy; it is also used to enter trances or guided meditations.
Another use would be the use in sweat lodges where it's commonly used to cleanse the body, mind and soul.
This practice is still in use today and has been used by the indigenous people of Mexico and South America.
Copal is used as a method of divination as shamans would burn the incense and interpret the smoke.
At other times, depending upon belief, the shaman would cast grains of maize after holding them in the smoke and chanting.
The Zapotecs in Milta, Oaxaca would burn the copal under water for finding the cause of fright as it was thought the underside would reveal a picture.
Comes in a bundle of 6 sticks.
