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.
When burned, white copal emits a clear resinous, velvety balsamic scent with woody tones.
Use white copal if you want to protect your home and people, cleanse them of negative influences and drive away all bad energies, help in healing and treating the sick.
This copal, originating from Peru, is known as the original resin of ancient Indian cultures, is considered sacred and ranked among the best types of incenses.
