Copal (Bursera odorata)

Properties: love, purification, meditation, medicinal.

                   Copal resin is a thick, lustrous resin, the most desirable of which originates from Mexico. These natural resin-based incense made from Copal resin gives off a hypnotic and very pleasing fragrance when burned. The Aztecs and Mayans both burned copal resins at the tops of their pyramids. The resin is placed on a hot-burning charcoal tablet when used. The scent is most commonly described as earthy(organic), woody and a bit spicy. It looks just like frankincense and is said to be a great alternative to it.


There is something rather fascinating about the connection between scents like Copal and the human mind. They are invisible to the naked eye, yet our minds can still detect their presence. Our sense of smell is closely linked with memory, and more so than any other sense. From a shamanic perspective, these fragrances can be used to program your subconscious and unconscious mind. This can be useful for incubating dreams and other psychological work. By creating a meaning or symbol for the aroma, you are helping to create, and more effectively wire neuropathways into the mind. This is a more thorough approach than simply reminding yourself, or writing something down. Utilizing all of your senses can greatly increase your success rate.


Aromatic scents like Copal can catch our attention rather quickly, lift our spirits, and remind us of things. This alone is obvious evidence that aromatherapy is rather effective. I highly suggest learning more about aromatherapy and its benefits. Aside from what i've already mentioned, these resins contain valuable phytochemical constituents, each of which demonstrates their own medicinal and/or psychoactive qualities. How do we know they have medicinal value? A branch of chemistry known as phytochemistry is dedicated to this type of research. So the next time someone says there is no scientific inquiry into the healing potential of plants and aromatics, correct them.
