"Into this smoke, I release all energies that no longer serve me, all negativity that surrounds me, and all fears that limit me. So it is.”
from the Highlands of Guatemala
Black Resin COPAL from the Protium copal (Burseraceae) tree is still in use by the Maya of MesoAmerica and other indigenous people who have long used this incense during their sacred ceremonies & rituals. It has been employed since time immemorial as an offertory incense as it is considered the supreme food of the Gods.
The aroma of burnt copal is said to fortify and invigorate the body, as it soothes the mind relieving symptoms of anxiety, stress, and depression. It is used as a traditional smudge to clear one’s home, space or office of stagnant energies, leaving the place feeling refreshed and renewed. It is especially potent and important to burn COPAL after experiencing any heavy energies in your life.
Black Copal is always used to placate the spirits of the deceased as it is burned at funeral rites to assist the dead in finding their way to land of the ancestors. In old buildings that have lingering spirits, use COPAL to encourage the ghosts to cross over to the other side.
On the other hand...
Gold Resin Copal Oil from the Hymenaea courbaril tree is used as an anointing oil which offers protection, grounding, healing and blessings. Whereas the black copal can dispel negative energies, the gold copal is used to call forth and welcome heavenly presence & protectors. This deeply aromatic woody/citrus scented resin has been infused into organic, unrefined almond oil with Vitamin E.
