Copal was used in ancient Maya and Aztec ceremonies as a ritual offering to the gods. The white smoke produced from burning copal resin was associated with helpful spirit allies. Copal purifies the energy of spaces, places and objects, chasing away negative energy and creating space for positive changes to occur.
Copal is a tree resin used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as a ceremonial incense. When burned on charcoal it produces a light, citrus and piney scent that can be used for spiritual cleansing and clearing.
