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.
The Mexican copal is an important part of rituals – a rising smoke and burnig fire transforms the essence of things, representing the bonding, communication between heaven and earth. Copal and his scent are compared to a soul that ascends to God’s truth.
A mediator between heaven and earth
Mexican copal is considered to be the mediator between heaven and earth, between matter and spirit, between the living and the dead, a human bond with the creator of Father and Mother, an element that transmits prayers to the divine realm through smoke.
Copal is highly valued for its mystical and ritual uses and is even healing. In the pre-Hispanic times, the taxes were collected partly in copal.
