Black copal has a smooth, dark balsamic-floral scent that is unique among the copals. It is a strong, mysterious, heavy and even mystical fragrance. Burned during the Day of the Dead, and to honour night-time and underworld deities. Use to honour the dead, and to deepen your connection with the night and its spirits. It is grounding & connects us to deeper levels of our inner spirit. Copal is sacred to the indigenous cultures of the Central and South Americas. It is burned year round in the churches in Mexico, but is best known for its use in the homes during Day of the Dead. It is said that the familiar scent of Copal helps the souls find their way back during their annual visit home.
The various Copal resins of Mexico and the Americas are closely related to the Copals of Africa and the Dammars of India and Indonesia. The American Copals generally have a sweeter aroma.
