Copal resin is derived from the copal tree Protium copal (Burseraceae). The word Copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word copalli, meaning "incense."
Copal was burnt by the Mayans, Aztecs, and Incas, as a gift to the Sun. Copal is still sacred to the indigenous cultures of Central and South America. Copal is said to carry messages to the spirit world.
Includes one (1) ounce of copal resin.
Gums, resins, and powders are best used with charcoal and a brazier. This ancient method is very easy and effective, but requires vigilance and caution, since it depends on fire. Be alert to ensuring that whatever you burn is kept far from flammable materials.
In a brazier or firesafe pot, light an incense charcoal. When it is white hot, spoon some incense onto the coal.
Never seen this before. Smells a little like camphor but stays in the air much longer and doesn't burn the eye balls.
