Gum Copal Resin Incense
White Copal Resin Incense ~ Charcoal Resins
Known as Gum Copal, White Copal, and Copal Blanco, this resin incense comes from a family of trees known as Bursera. These are small trees that are related to both frankincense and myrrh. This Copal can be found growing in North, South, and Central America and is considered sacred to many peoples of South and Central America, including the Mayans. Copal resin incense is burned year round in the churches of Mexico and has been used as an offering to the gods in Central America. As maize(corn) is the food of the people, so copal is the food of the gods, they would even so far as to shape the copal into ears of maize.
Copal smoke may have been employed for trance induction by shamans of Mesoamerica, but all the facts are not in yet. However, copal was definitely used by the shaman for divination purposes. "The shaman picks up fourteen grains of corn and holds them in incense smoke. He then chants, asking the sacred hill spirits to guide him. Next, he casts the grains (of censed maize) onto the cloth and interprets where they fall" (Sandstrom-Corn is Our Blood-1991:236).
White Copal incense has a clean, light, woody scent, almost fruity or citrus at times. Some people say it is similar to a very light myrrh scent, or a combination of frankincense and lemon. A great incense for clearing negative energies and making positive changes, white copal is a very uplifting fragrance. It is a wonderful aid to spirituality and feeling connected to divinity. An extremely positive and loving energy, white copal can help one to feel more content and peaceful with life, but also can aid in making changes when life is not as wonderful as it could be. Just sprinkle a few granules onto hot incense charcoal and voila!
Gum copal resin incense is a FANTASTIC incense for smudging. If the space is full of negativity, stagnation, or a loved one has been ill, copal can cleanse the space quickly and raise the vibrations at the same time. A great impetus for change, if you have been feeling stuck in your present circumstances, copal can be a true aid in helping you to move forward in a positive direction. Kind of like getting the pendulum moving. :-)
