Description

This listing is for the essential oil of Copal Blanco-Bursera bipinnata resin that I distilled in early March 2021.

Commonly called Copal Blanco and Sacred Copal, the resin is the traditional incense used in celebrating Mexican Day of the Dead ceremonies and reserved for other special occasions.

This is an essential oil that is close to impossible to source commercially and I am thrilled to offer a small amount to my customers.

It has an uplifting, soft, sweet, minty coniferous aroma with hints of honey, black pepper, nutmeg and cardamon.

Similar to many other resin essential oils, its fragrance will continue to mature, evolve and develop in its aromatic complexities with age.

Hoarding resin essential oils can provide important lessons in patience and a deeper appreciation of age for us all.

Used extensively in churches during the year, White Copal resin is best known for its use in Mexican Day of the Dead ceremonies and celebrations, where the smoke of burning Copal is seen as an offering that helps raise one’s prayers to the Divine. The pillar of Copal incense smoke is also believed to act as a beacon, leading the ancestral spirits home.

The resin has a light lemony scent. Burned on the coal it raises a beautiful, thick column of gentle, soft smoke with sweet hints of burnt caramel and soft ethereal floral notes. You can find the fresh resin in the shop here-https://www.etsy.com/listing/941117526/copal-blanco-sacred-copal-blocks-bursera

Copal Blanco/Bursera bipinnata is a member of the Burseraceae family of trees. Also called Torchwood trees and the Incense tree family. It is related to Frankincense, Myrrh, Elemi and many other fragrant resin-bearing trees used for incense, medicine and perfume. It is currently harvested in a traditional manner that does not stress the trees. However, with an increase in demand for the resin, future issues of sustainability are likely.

As with many other resins of the Burseracaea family, Copal is also used in traditional medicine. It is often dissolved in oil and used to treat sore muscles and joints and an assortment of skin conditions.

That being said, essential oils are very concentrated and should not be applied to the skin without adequate dilution. They should not be taken internally without the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional.

    I’ve never been disappointed by any of my orders with Dan. He is truly an artisan of great integrity. This copal essential oil is a gift from Mother Earth and Dan. It is so hard to find this oil and usually it barely lasts on the skin. This has a much better longevity than another I have tried. It smells like Copal, very clean, slight citrus and even a light frankincense smell it it. I highly recommend this store. Customer service is superb. Thank you, Dan.

    Beautiful essential oil that is hard to find!! As stated on the listing, shipping did take a while and you have to pay extra for a tracking number so i didnt know when it arrived. Either way, happy with my purchase.

    Frickin' spectacular oil!! I have been waiting to find this for years, and Dan the Man came through to answer my prayers. Just gorgeous. Smells just like the fresh copal blanco resin…bright, citrus, uplifting, clean, and crisp. This pairs beautifully with the copal negro (protium paniculatum) EO also from this shop. Like PB&J, they are a perfect complement. Thank you Dan! Your work is changing lives ūüėĀ
