CLEARANCE: Resin Incense - COPAL POWDER, Standard
CLEARANCE: DISCONTINUED - see our other listings for WHITE, GOLDEN and BLACK COPAL.
NOW AVAILABLE ONLY IN POWDER / SMALL PIECES (slightly smaller pieces than the ones pictured).
COPAL is a white, pale yellow, or yellow-orange gum resin that produces a rich pine-lemon fragrance - similar to Frankincense, to which it is related.
Copal resin is native to Mexico and Central America and has been used for centuries as incense in religious or magical ceremonies - the Mayans of Mexico believed that when burned as incense, Copal turns into otherworldly tortillas that are eaten by the deities.
The word copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word copalli, meaning "incense", and there are a few different types available, each with subtle difference in scent. Also available in higher grade WHITE, GOLDEN or BLACK Copal versions, listed separately.
Choose from PIECES or POWDER (not pictured) via the drop down OPTIONS menu near the top of the page, before adding the item to your cart.
These quality natural resin incense pieces are suitable for burning on self-igniting CHARCOAL DISKS - available separately (CLICK HERE). As you only need to use a couple of pieces at a time, each pack will last for many uses.
NOTE RE SIZES & PHOTOS: Photos may illustrate a larger or smaller quantity than what is listed, and are to give an idea of the typical resin colour, texture and size, which will differ from pack to pack - see the illustration of (L-R) 100g and 25g of resin pieces, along with 15g wood pieces and smaller 10-15g resin packs.
As some resins need to be broken up into smaller sizes, most types do include a small amount of powder along with larger sized pellets (unless otherwise described) - we often add extra powder over the quoted weight. Pellets and powder can all be burned for similar effect, and larger pieces can be easily broken down into smaller pellets if desired.
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.
