Description

Copal Negro-Black Copal-Protium Paniculatum-Peru-Sustainable harvest.
This Black Copal is collected from the ground and the trees are harmed in no way. It has a lovely sweet, fruity green fragrance when burned on a hot coal or in an electric burner.

A hard to find aromatic resin, Copal Negro is used as a traditional incense in ceremonies/rituals and the home. It is also used in traditional medicine, dissolved in oil for a broad range of skin-related problems. Like most tree resins, Protium Paniculatum has a deep affinity with the skin.

If used in skincare, cosmetics or therapeutic products, the resin can be ground and infused in a warm carrier oil in a water-bath. Once it has given itself to the oi, the infusion can be sedimented and filtered to provide a healing aromatic base for cremes, salves, lotions, ointments and medicated oils. This oil infusion can also be used in the creation of solid perfumes.

As an incense, Protium Paniculatum resin burns with a pleasant caramel, fruity, green fragrance with light floral notes.
If you burn it on an electric incense burner, don’t be surprised if you notice an accumulation of fine white needles in the lid. Looking like cotton. This is not mould, but the natural resin acids rising with the heat and reforming themselves upon cooling.

Copal Negro dissolves in alcohol and can be used to impregnate incense papers. The paper is first dipped in a solution of Salpeter and water, left to dry completely, then impregnated with a solution of resin and alcohol. When dry, the paper will burn evenly through due to the Salpeter and it will release the scent of Copal Negro as it burns. Recipes for incense papers can be found online. Many different resins and aromatic materials can be incorporated in incense papers.

I distilled a few kilograms of this unusual resin and was completely blown away by the unexpected Emerald Green colour of its essential oil!! I have distilled resins for over 20 years and have never experienced this intense colour before! The essential oil is not only visually striking, but it has an amazing aroma! You will see some photos of the essential oil above.

    My absolute favourite resin I have tried to date. Stunning on the burner and even just very nice and grounding to smell right from the bag. And fast turnaround and quick shipping, as always!

    Much different than the white copal but I enjoy them both. I use two tealite warmers. Make aluminum foil cups by folding the foil over the bottom of a votive candle. Using 6 to 8 of these foil cups I alternate resins on one and all frankincense on the other. Illuminates the pre-dawn hours. Thanks Dan.

    Everything even the stuff I ordered before this and After have all shown up this is the only package that has not shown up and it’s way past it’s late late date. I’m getting very frustrated and I’m about ready to want to scold this website and I don’t want to do that I’d like to keep this civil I have asked you several times to send the second package with my product in it the sooner I get it the sooner the better. I understand you want me to wait for six or 14 long weeks in order for this. FYI I will find my product somewhere else and will probably actually get more respect sent my way when it comes to not receiving my package and I spent a pay basically gave you $100 for nothing so I appreciate you for not doing anything in regards to my comfort all about you I would like my refund please or you can have that package out today

    Beautiful and fragrant, once you break the large black pieces, you can witness the luscious green resinous core. This copal fills the space with a complex, relaxing smoke. Formidable incense from dusk to dawn…

    I am new to resins so I’m not able to comment on the complexities but, I absolutely LOVE this copal with its woodsy notes. In fact, I love EVERYTHING I purchased from thus shop. The quality is clearly TOP NOTCH and Dan’s passion for his business really shines through in all of his sourcing, his product offerings, his listing descriptions, in everything, really! Dan is very knowledgeable and has been very helpful and kind when I’ve reached out to him. I’ve already placed a second order and will be a lifelong customer!
