Copal is a natural tree resin that is between two states—it is neither a hardened resin nor sap. Copal resin comes from trees in the Buresa family, which is considered a medicinal tree to the Mayas in southern Mexico. These medicinal trees are traditionally used for clearing the body of diseases and also to keep mosquitos away.
Copal holds a deep history and has many uses. Copal incense is a useful resin to work with for creating a calm and clear space to live in. It is also one of the best methods for cleansing crystals and energetically cleansing a space.
