Copal White Description
Copal is a type of resin produced by plant or tree secretions, particularly identified with the forms of aromatic tree resins used by the cultures of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica as a ceremonially burned incense, as well as for a number of other purposes. The word Copal is derived from the Nahuatl language word “Copalli”, meaning “incense”. To the pre-Columbian Maya and contemporary Maya peoples it is known in the various Mayan languages as “Pom”, although the word itself has been demonstrated to be a loanword to Mayan from Mixe-Zoquean languages. It is sometimes likened to, or substituted for Amber and put in jewellery. Copal is still used by a number of indigenous peoples of Mexico and Central America as an incense, and during ceremonies such as the sweat lodge ceremony.

Copal resin has been used topically by healers in the Amazon. The incense was regarded as a seeing instrument for the Mayans and considered a form of protection against sorcery, illness, and misfortune. The incense still burns in many Mexican churches today for the purpose of making the body ritually clean. Copal resin is known to European medicine since 1625. Jesuits brought it back from the New World and it was called “Jesuit’s Balsam” where it was used medicinally.
