Shorea Javanica

Copal is the name given to a tree resin that is an aromatic resin used by the cultures of Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as ceremonially burned incense. It originated in Mexico, but it now grows all over the world. The word copal is a shortened version of “copalli” which is a Nahuatl word for incense. The Mayan people referred to it as “pom” & others have nicknamed it young amber. The resin itself is also popular in East Africa. The most common use for this resin incense today is its use in ceremonies. It is used to purify objects, entrances & chosen for specific uses in ceremonies. It is also used in sweat lodges where it's commonly used to cleanse the body, mind and soul. This practice is still in use today and has been used specifically by the Native Americans as well as the indigenous people of Mexico and South America. Sustainably harvested, the resin is burned as an incense using charcoal tablets.
