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.
The scent is very woody, very frankincense forward, slightly hypnotic, with warmer almost citrus notes.
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.
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
Ignite the end of your incense for 5-10 seconds
Gently blow on the flame to extinguish.
A glowing, red ember will appear and smoke will dance off the end.
Always burn incense in a well-ventilated room with a fire-safe holder.
Ensure ash and embers are caught safely.
Once lit, never leave the incense unattended.
