The word copal is derived from the Aztec copalcoahuitl, which refers to the tree producing the resin, or the resin itself. Kopal was already considered the most important incense and sacrifice in pre-Columbian times, the Mayans considered it the brain of heaven, the food of the gods, and it could not be missed in any religious, magical or healing ceremony.
Its cleansing and protective function is also important; during the ceremonial consumption of psychedelic mushrooms or shamanic drinking of ayahuasca, the place, space, objects and people who go through this ritual are always cleansed. The local Indians believe that its smoke can drive away evil spirits, demons and witches and ensure a happy ceremony.
In Mexico, it is burned to clean and protect home from all negative influences, disasters and unfortunate events. Sick people are often incense treated because the smoke can drive away the spirits of the disease and help a lot in the healing process.
Mayan dark copal is one of the most beautiful and noble resins with a long tradition of use. When fumigated, it emits a mystical and pleasantly earthy scent with immediate effects. It evokes feelings of deep relaxation, dispels negative thoughts and unpleasant ideas. It promotes good mood and good sleep.
Dark copal comes from the tree Protium grandifolium and is related to the tree Bursera graveolis, which is known as Palo santo (“Holy Wood”).
When pieces of dark copal are placed on hot coals in an incense burner, it emits a rich, multi-layered mystical scent that connects with good spirits and our ancestors. It’s suitable for festive occasions, ceremonies, healing meditations and other.
