Copal comes from the Burseraceae family, which is considered a medicinal tree for the Mayans in southern Mexico. The plant comes from its natural habitats in Mexico, and is harvested by hand, without affecting its natural environment.

Already in ancient times, this plant was considered sacred to the inhabitants of Mexico, as well as South and Central America, going back even to the Mayan and Aztec cultures. The word ‘copal’ comes from the word ‘copalli’, which means ‘incense’ in Nahuatl language.

Energetically, this incense helps open up at the spiritual level, increasing intuition and creating positive energy conducive to self-development. It stimulates the imagination, intuition and creativity.

A Copal smudge is also a great tool to use during meditation – it helps to achieve balance and peace while removing energy blockages from the body. It is connected to the crown chakra, deepening consciousness and encouraging clear thinking.

It has a clean, light, woody fragrance with a distinct citrus note, and is considered soothing and calming.
