Resin Incense - COPAL MIXED BAG Inc Tips Card
COPAL is a white, pale yellow, yellow-orange or grey-black gum resin that produces a rich pine-lemon fragrance - similar to Frankincense, to which it is related. It is native to Mexico and Central America and has been used for centuries for incense in religious or magical ceremonies: the Mayans of Mexico believe that when Copal is burned it turns into otherworldly tortillas that the deities eat.
There are a number of different varieties of Copal available, each with their own subtle differences: this pack includes 25g Golden Copal, 15g Black Copal and 25g White Copal. These high quality natural resin incense pieces are suitable for burning on self-igniting charcoal disks - available separately.
We also include a bonus double sided card with instructions on how to burn resin incense, as well as hints and tips for getting the most out of resins - perfect for those trying our resin incense for the first time (just don't forget to add a pack of CHARCOAL TABLETS).
WHITE COPAL (25g) has a cleaner, crisper scent than cheaper varieties.
GOLDEN COPAL (25g) has a warm, honey-like colouring. It has a crisp, almost citrus scent that is slightly richer, complex and more spicy than the White variety.
BLACK COPAL (15g) is a greyish colour, and is often considered the most desirable of the three because of its rich, heavy scent.
Each pack contains small resin pieces and an amount of resin powder. As you only need to use a couple of pieces, or a pinch at a time, each pack will last for many uses.
Don't forget to order CHARCOAL TABLETS if you don't already have some on hand. View our CENSERS (resin incense burners) HERE.
WHAT IS RESIN INCENSE?
Resin incense has been used since Biblical days. It is the purest form of incense: natural gums, resins, wood chips and herbs from aromatic plants, used either in pure pellets or in a pre-mixed blend, and warmed with heat (usually charcoal disks / tablets) to emit their fragrance through aromatic smoke. Aroma Queen specialises in resins and stocks dozens of different pure gums and blends, in the most divine natural scents to suit every taste. If you enjoy standard stick incense, you are sure to enjoy resin incense.
