Copal (Bursera Copalli)
In many rituals and spells, copal incense provides a pleasant scent. Copal comes from a family of trees called Bursera that grow in Mexico and parts of southern California. Aztecs and Mayans used this raw material for many different ritual purposes. Copal resin is sometimes referred to as “Amber” scent.
Copal incense is frequently used in modern practice to cleanse the crown chakra. It is, therefore, an excellent tool for building a strong connection with the spiritual world when seeking guidance. As well as clearing blockages, it heightens the energy in a room.As well as clearing blockages, it heightens the energy in a room. Its gold color makes it particularly effective as a charm for prosperity and wealth spells.
Pairing Copal and Frankincense together will bring strong protective vibes to an area that may be vulnerable to attack. If you are doing a lot of work with spirits, I would recommend regularly cleansing your auric body with this potent combination. The act of spiritual self care enables the practitioner to remain clear of any energies that might try to siphon from them such as spiritual vampyres.
