Gold Copal Oro Resin 

Botanical Name: Shorea javanica 

Common Names: Elephant tree


History of Copal has been used for thousands of years, where the Aztecs and Mayans used it for sacred ceremonies. While it was commonly used for incense it was also used for other purposes including an adhesive, binder for pigments, a chewing gum that had medicinal functions and for ceremonial figurines.

Gold Copal is made through the complete removal of the bark from the tree. Gold copal has a richer and smoother aroma than white copal. This strong rich aroma is a powerful cleanser in ceremonial use.

In the language of the Nahuatl Indians, the word kopali means "incense." Copal Oro Gold Pieces were indeed used in the religious rites of Mexico's indigenous peoples, including the Mayans, the Mexica, the Aztecs and more. Shamans burned dried Copal Oro Gold Pieces just as if they were dried herbs, and then inhaled the smoke in order to commune with their gods.
 When burned outdoors, whole Copal Oro Gold Pieces give off a resinous smell that is pleasant to humans, but not to insect pests. Sliced Copal Oro Gold pieces can be melted down and used as a non-toxic adhesive for broken pottery as well. 

Warning: For external use only.
