Provides spiritual cleansing, connection to spirit realm. Sap from a tree in Mexico and considered the “blood” of the tree, copal is believed to appease the Gods when burned as a sacred offering. It has a powerful crisp, clearing, sharp scent that purifies the energy in your space and in your energetic field. Black copal is considered by some the most desirable for its rich and heavy scent. Golden copal has the sweetest scent and offers a good balance. White copal is sweeter smelling than black varieties but not as rich, nor as sweet as golden copal.
In the language of the Nahuatl Indians, the word kopali means "incense." Copal Oro Gold Pieces were indeed used in the religious rites of Mexico's indigenous peoples, including the Mayans, the Mexica, the Aztecs and more. Shamans burned dried Copal Oro Gold Pieces just as if they were dried herbs, and then inhaled the smoke in order to commune with their gods.
When burned outdoors, whole Copal Oro Gold Pieces give off a resinous smell that is pleasant to humans, but not to insect pests. Sliced Copal Oro Gold pieces can be melted down and used as a non-toxic adhesive for broken pottery as well.
