Black Copal Essential Oil

This listing is for the Rare & gorgeous Black Copal essential oil, Copal Negro-Protium Paniculatum from Peru that I distilled in March 2021.

I have distilled essential oil from many different resins over the years, but this is the only one that yielded such a brilliant green colour.

The aroma of Black Copal essential oil aroma is true to the resin and has a sweet, toffee/caramel, fruity, green heart with Amber highlights and soft and fleeting floral notes.

Please Note: The green colour of this essential oil looks lighter in colour as the volume of the bottle diminishes. A 1 Millilitre vial will not look as green as the 200 Millilitre flask in the photo. It will only show a faint green colour.

The resin is sustainably collected from the ground in the Piura area of Peru. Since it is collected from fallen material it has also aged, which contributes to its unique aroma and its very low yield of essential oil per Kilogram.

A hard-to-find aromatic resin, Copal Negro is used locally as a traditional incense in ceremonies/rituals and the home. it is also a traditional medicine and dissolved in oil before being applied to the skin for a broad range of skin-related problems. Like most tree resins, Protium Paniculatum has a deep affinity with the skin and could likely be of benefit in cosmetic products.

I have only a small amount of this essential oil and I do not know if I can get more of this resin.

I personally distilled this essential oil. Nothing has been added to it and nothing removed from it. It is pure and unadulterated. Similar to most other essential oils distilled from resins, the aroma of this oil will mature and deepen with time. A good investment.
