Description

Copal Blanco, White Copal, Sacred Copal, Premium grade Tears from Bursera bipinnata. A traditional Meso-American incense resin used in rites, rituals and ceremonies for thousands of years.

Used extensively in churches during the year, White Copal 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 and 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.

Fresh, it has a sweet 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.

Copal Blanco melts completely into the charcoal and contains no water-soluble-gum as do many other incense resins. This lends softness to its smoke but also means one should be careful to not add too much to the charcoal all at once or the pooling liquid resin may extinguish your coal.

Copal Blanco/Bursera bipinnata is a member of the Burseracaea 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 and perfume.

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.

    envoyé très rapidement ; la description n'est pas juste : ce n'est pas de la résine fraiche ; elle n'est pas collante et on peut la manipuler et couper facilement en petits morceaux ; le parfum reste cependant agréable. merci

    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!

    Wonderful, fresh, and oh so fragrant! The scent filled my mailbox. Nothing quite like fresh copal blanco. It has such a clean, crisp, and uplifting aroma. My absolute favorite of the Bursera species resins.
