Copal is a general name that describes the resinous substance exuded from a variety of tree genera. Typically, these trees come from tropical climates and their resin has historical uses by indigenous tribes in ceremonial settings. Our copal resin comes from Shorea javanica. Copal is traditionally burned as incense.

More generally, the term copal describes resinous substances in an intermediate stage of polymerization and hardening between "gummier" resins and amber. The word copal is derived from the Nahuatl word copalli, meaning "incense". Copal has long been used in ancient Maya and Aztec ceremonies as a ritual offering to the gods. It is still used by a number of indigenous people in southern Mexico and Central America during sweat lodge ceremonies as well as sacred mushroom ceremonies. Copal is also found in East Africa and Indonesia. Ceremonially, the resin is placed on hot coals for spiritual cleansing.


Copal is associated with the crown chakra and is used to cleanse and uplift the auric body and clear energy blockages. It also provides protection and is used for blessings. Allow this sacred smoke to raise your spirit and ease feelings of depression, anxiety, or stagnation. Use it during meditation. You could also use this smoke to cleanse crystals and areas at home or work or during sweat lodge ceremonies, as indigenous people still do. Some healers burn it to diagnose one’s energy field and be able to better see and cleanse blockages.


Traditionally, Copal was used by the Mayans and Aztecs. The Aztec language of Nahuatl uses the word copalli, which translates to incense. Mayans now refer to copal as pom. It has been used as an offering to the god Tlaloc and the goddess Chalchiuhtlicue, both associated with creation and fertility. Copal is used for new beginnings, clearing the old and bringing in the new order. It is associated with the Sun, which is masculine, and the element of fire. Use it to raise your vibration and bring in love. Copal is used all-year in churches in Mexico and for the Day of the Dead celebration.
