About the Incense:

Copal - Copal unites the energizing force of the sun with the grounding, transmutive properties of earth. It was believed to be a powerful yet gentle healer and cleanser. Historically, Copal was believed to draw out and transmute negative energy of all kinds on all levels. Copal was used as an aid in physical self-healing, emotional healing of depression, and environmental clearing. Copal is tree resin identified with the aromatic resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as ceremonially burned incense and other purposes. The term copal describes resinous substances in an intermediate stage of polymerization between gummier resins and amber. The word copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word copalli, meaning “incense”. To the pre-Columbian Maya and contemporary Maya peoples it is known in the various Maya languages as pom. Copal is used by a number of indigenous peoples of Mexico and Central America as an incense and communal ceremonies.

Frankincense - Frankincense resin is useful for fumigating sacred space in preparation of any ritual as it burns away negativity and raises the energy of the space. Some believe this is the most powerful and useful incense for this purpose and it is used for exorcism as well. Frankincense, also known as olibanum, is a resin obtained from the Boswellia sacra tree as well as other closely related trees. The resin is gathered by slashing the bark of the tree and allowing the sap to bleed out and harden. These hardened bits of sap, called tears, are then collected by hand. There is some evidence that populations of Boswellia trees are declining due to over-collection of Frankincense tears.

Myrrh - Myrrh can be used for purification and preparation for ritual, myrrh resin may be burned as incense for purification, exorcism, protection, and healing. Also, for funerary rites, connection with the dead and the underworld. Myrrh is a resin obtained from one of several species of tree in the Commiphora genus including Commiphora myrrha, Commiphora molmol, and Commiphora gileadensis among others. The resin is gathered when it oozes from cuts in the bark of the tree and it hardens into a waxy substance that can be used as a fragrant oil or incense.
