Spiritual cleansing, connecting you to the spirit realm. Copal is the sap from a tree in Mexico that is considered the “blood” of the tree and is believed to appease the Gods when burned as a sacred offering. Copal has a powerful crisp, clearing, sharp scent that purifies the energy in your space and in your energetic field. I use Copal as an offering to my ancestors. Also used during the Day of the Dead.
How to burn.
Light the charcoal with matches or lighter for about 20 seconds until it self-ignites. Use tongs to hold it up (never hold it with your fingers alone or you might get burned). Place the lit charcoal in a bowl or any incense burner. The bowl or incense burner should be filled with sand or dirt.
