Copal is a resin collected from the copal tree. Our copal is sustainably harvested (with attention to not over harvesting a single tree) by a family in Oaxaca, Mexico. Copal was used in ancient Mayan and Aztec ritual to call upon ancestral guidance during ceremony and is still used in ceremony and temples around the globe. Copal offers a sweet, earthy, uplifting and enlivening aroma that assists in sanctifying your space.
Copal Burning Instructions: Unwrap bundle and place crystal aside for safe keeping. Light stick and allow flame to burn down at least half an inch. Blow flame out. If the stick puts itself out while burning, relight and allow flame to burn longer before blowing out. With focused attention gently blow on the stick to direct smoke. Place in the soil of a plant, in a bowl of rice, or in an incense holder.
